Replaced mine after a few rides. Slides all over off road. No side pouches.

Don't miss it at all. Went with a four strap Wolfman.

Great party, and now wish I had put my ECU in my bag...
Good people. Ed Cook and AF-1 were great to work with, super helpful and answered all my questions. It would have been convenient to drop the ECU off at the party!

Your timing could not be better as I hear they are re-flashing using the new Gen-2 version which has some enhancements. I am happy with the Gen-1 so will wait and see how the new version plays out. Let us know how you like it once you get it done.

Wife's backrest / topbox arrived yesterday. I think I'll use it to commute with too. Lockable, lightweight, functions. Haven't ridden with it yet, but it looks like it fits and is secure. My Large Shoei fits too, barely...

Yep ArmyMedic, I am kinda leaning this way. Saw Wolfman vendor down at BikeWeek in Daytona and was impressed with the quality.

Doesn't come with a pad.... Not sure if they make it.

I don't wear my outdoor shoes in the house. I store my everyday shoes there in the garage. I should donate some of those to charity. I only buy a couple of pair a year, but when you have so many, you don't wear them much, so they last forever. I probably have thirty pairs when you add my bicycle, golf, softball, motorcycle boots, shoes to the tally...
