    i made mv pegs so i can stretch out . for the bad hip . yes the right on is spring loaded so it flips up to put my foot down .
    a russel seat , no more numb but
    a fender extender for the dirt roads , from a gs500 as for the w/s the wife likes it and no more getting beat up on the freeway
    hyper pro rear shock . its great , i have the race tech valve on the way for the fork . ye ha
    The darn w/s doesn't look right, it might work right, but god damn that looks out of place. Wish I could afford that seat.... A+ for the home made pegs, that looks comfy... uhmmm..... I don't know about the fender extender... with a bit of luck I'll get a BMW F800 GS next year.

    Bottom line is this, hope that I'll see you later this summer up in Washington Island. Thanks for posting those pics.

    It really does not change the sound a bit? Youd think it would change it a little with more of a tube...but what do I Know!!

    I will look at these seats in the future, but I did do a 550 mile Tuesday while on the stock seat. It held up surprisingly well though the next day of riding saw my endurance shortened
