The winglets came in while I was out on a 3 day ride. They are the easiest thing I have ever installed. Hopefully they will add a little comfort at highway speeds.

Corbin solves it, dramatic improvement.

Some others have put some spacers under the stock seat to change the angle.

I like the wings they do seem to help at highway speeds. The Madstad bracket is a nice addition as well

I have mine in the "high" position and simply pulled the middle set of rubber stand off's from the bottom of the seat. Wonderful and cheap improvement!

This was not exactly as expected... This is not a skid plate; it mounts to the sump. I ordered it late one night. Oh well it will do on dirt roads until I get the Altrider installed. It is compact, clean, looks good and will stop rocks.

Le$$ion learned.

Oops. Looks like a nice beefy plate mounted to and with fragile components. Who thinks this stuff up?

See ya in a couple of weeks!

The plate is great; nice thick aluminum, good welds, nice anodized finish. Just does not mount correctly.

Looking forward to the ride - can't wait!

My new GIVI luggage rack came in. I like - makes a nice rack without the topcase installed. Good quality and the brushed finish is cool. Good hardware and easy to install.

This is the "large" topcase 45 liter; I have a 33 liter one on the way for weekend / day trip use. I picked up some reflective tape at the auto parts store to dress it up.

Looks very nice! Does the Givi plate mount on the OEM plate or does it have it own base?

Wanna, the GIVI plate reuses the black plastic base that comes with the S-10. It takes the place of the plastic (silver) plate that comes on the bike and is almost twice the size. It has its own hardware and one extra bolt / support at the rear to give it more strength. The stock bolt you have to take out for the rear support has threadlock on it so you will need a 5mm hex socket and ratchet - or something of the sort. Or, you could try heating it up to soften the threadlock.
