    Thanks!
    I used Backyard Designs. They have several templates available, and you can further customize them to your liking. Even add your own graphics.

    Not mine, no connection with the seller, but figured at least you could see his photos & pm the seller with any questions you have.

    So I've been MIA from the forums for a while... Just took an online break for the most part.

    I'm also too lazy at this moment to catch up on all of your scintillating posts, but I'm sure I'll get around to it. Just figured I'd give you all a quick shout-out and say hey. Not that you missed me.... lol

    Those of you that are watching your riding season wind down, get off the computer, stop reading all of these zeros and ones, and go send it before it's too late.

    It’s always funny to me how when the country starts talking about the riding season winding down, mine in AZ is just getting to the point that I can start touching my bike without welding gloves. Our season just starts in October for the winter.

    Same here. While we don't see the temps you do, the humidity makes it almost impossible to sweat in July & August riding anything less than highway speeds.

    I don't get a lot of riding done here in Alabama between Memorial Day and Labor Day unless it's a early morning ride done by 11ish. And certainly no low speed off-road stuff.

    When I moved here from Maryland, I was told , "There you rode 10 months of the year, not January and February, here you don't ride July and August. "

    Got my tank back yesterday and managed to get out into the garage to fit it today. I'm well chuffed with the paint job and think it looks better than the dull grey O/E job.

    Can't wait to get walking now so I can get out and ride it :ricky

    Yamaha seat rack (replaces the pillion seat ) and SW Motech rack behind that. I thought you'd sold your bike Johnny ?

    I live in the southeast. Ride all year long, but i do feel for the brethren who can't. I did live in CO, WY and MN, so I understand the struggle.

    That’s assuming we get snow along with all the cold! Some years it’s just cold!

    Hey does your Yamaha seat rack and SW Motech rear rack fit together without modification?

    Thanks.

    Got it back, with a shedload of bling added
    Missed it too much
    One extra that the interim owner fitted was the SW Motech rear rack, but couldn’t see a way of mounting the Yamaha pillion seat rack, because of the side rails of the rear rack
    Show me your solution
