Can't argue that the Scotts would probable the first pick of most people, but Emig has come up with such a great complete package that its hard to argue against going with his set up. As far as bling goes, I did mine in a semi-bling.
Note the trees are black. You could do every thing in black if you wanted, he has a few collors to choose from including leaving it aluminum, or I bet Emig could come up with a gray at no extra charge. Which brings me to the next subject. I have had a blown seal. I let it go for a few months, and even though it kept leak'n, it never stopped dampining. When I did send it in, it was back on the bike within a weak, free of charge. You just cant beat that type of service these days.
As far as travel'n and having a problem. Its not like your going to be stranded. The bike is will work without it. Plus, if your traveling on the 950, a leaky stabilizer will probably be the least of your worries.
