    Hi Amoreira, cool pics, what is that seat cover in the bottom pic? Made specific or repurposed car seat cover? Look like it will give decent air flow?

    Have not noticed it at all. You are supposed to use it turned around to keep weight forward but around town it's a PIA to get on the bike with it over pass seat. I guess it might be more aerodynamic that way as well. When I load for my long trips I'll probably mount it as they say to reduce drag but for my daily 10 mile commute in town it's not an issue.

    Here you go. The brackets are Clearwater's generic ones.

    applied the dave moss settings to her, dropped the seat into the low position and got the hand control angles right.

    I took her for a little ride too. love this bike

    Hey Sparky, a couple of questions for you. What seat is that you have one it? What did you attach under the rear seat. Did you cut off most of the OEM plate holder? And finally is that the traction control on the front fork? Thanks.

    That would be the stock seat with a couple layers of varying density foam built up and shaped just for my bony butt. Then a goretex style fabric and 3d mesh on top. Homemade awesomeness lol.
    Underneath is a little self-defense.
    On back, I did dremel it. And the shiny thing up top is a Walmart bicycle bell, as well as a phone mount.

    So to get it straight you pack under the rear cowl? What about weather? Utah considers your car as an extention of your home, so you can put a gun anywhere and not seen unless it is has one in the chamber (two actions needed to fire). I do not know if the same is included on a bike. I will look into that without a concealed-carry permit. Secondly did you do the seat yourself or have someone do if for you since I have a bony ass as well. The last thing was I was looking at the front Shock lowers. You have something black on the aluminum fork area. What is that? Thanks again.

    It's not a gun. Just my mirror beater. AZ is pretty cool about open carry, but like you said, the elements make it tough. And I know what wrecking and landing on hard objects feels like. More likely for that to happen than to need to shoot anybody. When in doubt, gas it out as they say. Uploading more pics of the seats and aux lights. $20 lights from Amazon. You do remind me though, I've been meaning to put the old vinyl up in the classifieds.

    What the hell is a mirror beater. Some sort of extendable tommy stick? I hoped it was not a gun because that was a shitty place to put it IMO;-) Thanks for clarifying that the object in the first photo was lights. I think that I would stay away from wiring personally since I would try and cause the bike more problems than not. I hate wiring diagrams and have had poor results personally. If its electric or plastic I will pass!;-) They mess with me for some reason. More than likely Impatience! and just going for it without reserve and f..king them up. Cost usually is double for me due to taking it to the dealer to fix. ;-)

    20160605_202725-1.jpg 20160604_143552.jpg Exactly, lol. I wouldn't try to use it while moving, but I have been hailed by angry idiots. If I can get away, I will. If not, a baton doesn't win a gun fight, but I won't go down without trying.

    As for wiring, just need to plan the whole process before you start. The Aux lights plumb straight into ignition. The trunk is lit up too. Used a 5 pin trailer hook up for running, brake, signal, signal, ground.
