Very true.

I agree on just riding and no polishing ( but not forgetting the servicing it needs )

I'll go the other way. Use it as often and as dirty as possible (what are we typing about here?).
Clean it properly afterwards. (okay, both sidecars and wedding tackle).
As for polishing...

I've got another two but they are 10" and I'm across the big ditch.
Are they the original magnesium ones?

Here is my 2005 DL1000 with a Ural chair and DMC rigging. I bought the rig in October and it is awesome. Even after driving it off the snowy road on Snoqualmie Pass (thanks again everyone who rescued me) I'm still in love with it.

Beautiful setup! Looks like it came from the factory like that.

Most excellent, Trayvessio, quite the eyeful!

Does the chair have a PNW Approved drain petcock, just in case?
