I just bought a 04 Bumble Bee. Should be here in about 10 days. Mine has the original black and yellow seat and all 3 BMW hard cases. These are beautiful bikes.

I don't think you could handle the beauty of that many 04 bees all together, almost brings a tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

Is the cussing due to the installation process? If so, I know how you feel. Its not a bike repair job if something doesn't go at least a little wrong and the cussing happens.

No, this was the "oh crap! What useless shit have I bought now!" process. Got the seat on last night. Gee. It's tall. So, let's see. Tall bike. Add the heaviest weight Hyperpro springs they make. Now let's add a seat built for Paul effin' Bunyan to it. Just about perfect. Woo-doggie.

I can see Russia from my seat. ;)

Been there, done that. I've been the seller part of the story that goes "got a great deal on this thing, and it was barely used..."
