    Thanks JVB. I can't take credit for the paint it was done by the P.O. but I'm a big fan of the Titan silver too. I'm kinda surprised there isn't a silver or black from the factory.

    I just had this work done. I think I would have had a heart attack if I came in and saw my bike rent in half like that. Eesh.

    Hi Jim,

    nah, we just happed to find ourselves here after travelling down the left coast from Canada.

    We're actually from Newcastle in England (although someone else is living in our house now) - we took a year off to see a bit of the world outside Europe. We flew into Vancouver in June and we've spent the last six months exploring. We meant to continue into Mexico but we've run out of time as our visas expire on Dec 20th :cry

    We were going to ship(fly) the bike out of LA but it looks like it will be cheaper and easier from Vancouver. ...and we thought we had avoided the cold weather!

    If you're looking for the sun Tucson is where it's at now - 78 here today :nod .

    You're a lucky man - the roads in AZ are fab as well. 666 (191) is amazing.

    Simon

    Is that the Aerostich Sheepskin pad? The connections look like it. If not, what is it? And how do you like it?

    Its an Airhawk pad. http://www.rohoinc.com/recreational/index.jsp

    And I love it. I'll likely never get a custom seat b/c I can just slap this on any of my bikes' stock seat and have a happy butt on a multi-thousand mile trip. I highly recommend trying one before you spend the time and money on a custom seat -- and this is from a guy who easily spends large sums on what he "thinks is the best" and on what he wants.

    Oh, the connections are simply the tiny bungees. They wrap under the seat. The pad doesn't come with any straps.

    And oh, the model that fits the GS nice is the "small cruiser". And oh, be sure and use it right -- you ride with barely any air in it...my guess is 20% inflation. Just read the manual.

    I realize it doesn't weigh anything, but that is completly bizarre! I bet you get some interesting looks with that rig going down the road!

    I like it!:D

    Yes, I get all sorts of comments. It's not a big deal and anybody can do it, but I guess not many do.
