Scored a used Corbin seat for a bill:
Only a few miles on it so far, but I think I am going to like it. I feel better sitting a little lower on the bike and can comfortably flat foot it at stops.
"L" can fit it too now. All part of my long term plan.
I also added a pad to enlarge the foot print of the side stand.
Drilled a couple small holes to retain it. I have plenty of replacement material on hand. It seems to be holding up pretty well so far (excuse the pun)
A little work to modify the bar end weights and the Moose handguards are in place
Those will protect the levers, my hands and keep the chill off a little better as fall aproaches.
I also picked up a used radiator guard...
and a waterpump bar.
Both were a little rough, but cleaned them up smoothed them up. Modified to work with the road bars and then black baked enameled. They offer a little more protection for those vulnerable areas.
Am going to change out the headlamp bulb for a lower watt and better light solution. The light that I have now is good, but I see a little dimming at idle. I think I can solve that with some power reductions and also improve visibility on both ends.
Slowly but surely I am getting this to its "Happy place".
