    Man, don't tell me they're hard to see. How'd you fare and was it one of those, "Looked right at me and pulled out anyway?":eek1

    Long Gone,

    I'm O.K. Broke my right collarbone for the 4th time and fractured my right kneecap. The car driver was impaired, so I doubt she would have seen a semi!

    Actually, I would have gotten another yellow/black, but the dealer only had blue/grey the day I showed up.

    I thought so, too. And BTW, its definitely Mr. Cindy.:D My wife's name is Cindy and she's a dance teacher. All her students call her Miss Cindy in good ole' southern fashion. When I show up at the studio I'm known as Mr. Cindy which the kids find terribly funny, but which suits me just fine. I find it makes a good 'net name since I don't forget it and its never taken.





    Is that the Touratech saddle? If so, how do you like it? I'm saddle shopping since the stocker gives me serious butt burn after an hour or so.

    And, BTW, I love the black paint!:thumb I've been considering that, too.

    Where did you get the clear turn signals from. I'm looking for a set that are clear but the same size as stock. Not into the mini blinker thing.

    The seat is indeed Touratech. It was sitting on table in my dealer's one day and they let me have it for about 60% stock price...it was on a demo bike and the guy wanted the stock one.

    I havent done any real distance yet, but its great for an aggressive nuts on tank riding style :evil . And being a shorty despite a little higher I can get one foot down properly, seem to be less 'squidged' in than on the stock one and more slidey.
    BUT it feels real hard. There's a softish 'bucketed' spot just back where I guess your butt would sit in a more relaxed style and might be the sweet-spot but its too far back for me. Others have said tho that harder can be better for longer rides. There's guys on here that have had one for longer distances.

    The matt black/silver idea hit me while drooling over a K1200R and for me when I put the matt panels back on I knew it looked just right (IMO of course!) because everything suddenly integrated. Also it was easy to do at home as matt black is easy to get a good finish. Downside will probably be shiney scuffs...know how matt black goes when rubbed? Hate to think what it would looktake like after a tankbag. But its easy to get those panels off and give them a quick re-spray over twice a year maybe.

    And I got the clear lenses from www.clearalternatives.com you need chromed bulbs to really lose the orange btw. TT and wunderlich both do the clear rear light as well, plus others now I think.

    newbie poster, and could not locate an FAQ. How does one embed a pic into a post? Do you have to have picture reside from accessable ftp site?

    My permissions note "You may NOT post attachments". Is this due to my embryonic status?

    Yes, like www.photobucket.com or similar.

    Nope, none of us can, takes too much memory, or something.

    noob. go to the "ask baldy blame fish" forum. look at the "how to post
    pictures" thread.

    attachements are turned off because they slow the server down to a crawl.

    cheers,
