Not bad for half the price.






I was going to order a pair but the guy is on vacation. Are you still happy with them? Are they dimmable?

Got my new Saddlemen Seat for my GSA. I'm replacing a Sargent seat that has never felt right for me since I got the bike, about 5k miles ago...

Going from this...



To this...







and now I even have a pillion seat, which did not come with the bike...





I'll take it for a spin tomorrow and post how it feels... It it is much more firm than the Sargent, but I'm sure it is just because it is new and not broken in yet. It is taller than the Sargent by a bit...

that central slot would be ideal for riding in the nude. Keep the Johnson tucked down out of the way - so it wouldn't go flapping all over the place in the wind.

My thoughts exactly... I got tired of slamming the boys against the tank... I hope this helps...

Unless it's raining. Not sure I'd want the junk soaking that long.

It's pretty close to the leading edge of the rear tire, not sure how it'd do in really muddy conditions, I could see it getting pretty packed in there.

Well, it was 91f in town today, with crystal blue skies and little wind, so I to took my GSA out for a ride...

But last weekend, learned to change my own oil. Don't laugh or I'll hit you with one of those wooden handle things you use to pound those sharp steel things into wood...

Yup, a mechanical dolt.

Wow, I'd really worry about that sucker getting ripped of when mud gets up there. Be interesting to see how it works out!

I've done so much in the last 2 weeks but I won't include that....

Today:
- Completed the install of my Twin Headlight Ernie shelf
- Completed the install of the RAM/Garmin mounts to said T.H.E. shelf
- Ran the wires for the Garmin, radar det. and tank bag power cord under the tank
- Installed new bolts into the drilled/tapped holes I had to make when the corrosion at the bottom of the alt. belt cover caused the original bolts to snap off
- Checked the fitment of the T.H.E. Engine Protection Trays (need to scrub the underside of the engine before I actually install it)
- Made (2) trips to ACE Hdwr. because I forgot to take the RAM mount with me the first time and got the wrong size screws....

Tomorrow I'll ride it to the dealer to pick up the spare key that's been on order for over 2 weeks, I'll want to check it to make sure it works since they're on the other side of town.

This w/e..... RIDE the bastard!

Don't sweat it, they self clean pretty well.

Note, however, that you have removed your strap for the "tool kit". In doing so you opened a hole to whatever is in your tray!


Crap get's in when the road is wet.

Best to do this:
