    Thanks. It’s good to know I wasn’t imagining things.

    Nice pic! My 990 was nice, but I’d take my 790 in every scenario of my riding every time, including the slab I do.

    I was in that dilemma... appears thta the sotck R seat is too wide, but this one is taller but narrower... I think that a narrower seat no matter taller can let touch ground with one foot as I´m doing right now with the stock seat... Need to try it! My height is 5´6

    Beautiful! Now I can really see it. The version you uploaded in the Aurora thread is super low-res.
    Reminds me I need to get some softbags too now that I have the buffeting licked.

    Very nice, I thought it was a Yamaha when I first looked.
    Why the spoiler on the rally screen?

    I have a pretty long torso, so the spoiler helps reducing bufetting

    And, when the weather is hot, you can rotate it toward you to get a lot of air!
    Because otherwise the rally screen is pretty efficient at keeping you away from it.. Even a well vented jacket is not really efficient anymore :)

    Nice set up! Were you headed out to clear trail or downtown to help clean up the mess?

    Ha!

    It out around Mt Hood. No trail clearing, fortunately. Just sawing up deadfall for campfires.

    But now that I've mounted the saw like this, one could use it for road clearing, though it's not an easy on-off mounting solution. For that, I'd need to fab up something to the Perun plate.
