Here's my C5 with the US factory pillion seat removed. Not the most visually stunning option but I'm the less-is-more type when it comes to washing and polishing anyway so it fits in fine with the working-bike look I think.

Good idea BUT if you do that, fit it up first to make sure it mounts alright THEN chrome it.  You don't want to be drilling fresh chrome and cursing ;)

That goes without saying.

looks good,  where did you get the bike cover from and do you like it?

It's a Bilt cover, I think I got it from Cycle Gear when I was in the States last year. It's lasted about a year so far but is starting to show its age. Quite faded and coming apart at the bottom a bit. It's also not 100% waterproof. It will probably last another 6 months or so and then I'll have to chuck it. On the plus side it was pretty cheap, about $30-40 as far as I remember.

Thanks, I found it, it's on sale too.
