If you buy the panniers separately, they'll come with a lock set. Just won't match your ignition key. Stadium Yamaha has the best prices that I've seen at $343 per pannier and they also offer black. Get the part number off the Yamaha Europe website.

Btw, check out the clutch switch mod, it will really make the bike come alive in the first three gears.

I had to have my bash plate powder coated black for that very reason.

maybe playful banter with the first 100 posts or so on the whole gay deal... but that line has gotten a bit tiresome.

no harm in teasing a bit... but please...lets take it in a different direction...

I suppose we could go back to posting pictures of our bikes in this thread.



I think what we really need is all of this blasted snow to melt so we can get back to riding instead of arguing.

I was concerned about that very thing, but when tested this past summer in a rocky downhill tip over, the light just rotated sideways on it's mount, no contact. Sorry, no pic, it was the first time and had to get it back on it's feet ASAP lest it stay there...

So those covered bridges...

Can someone edumacate me on why the covers?

Is it just to keep the big wood from rotting or is there something else to it?
