First ride of the year
« on: April 10, 2013, 12:09:00 AM »
I know I am a little behind, but I final took the first non test-ride ride of the year tonight. Temp was around 70ish, until the cold front hit and dropped it to about 40! Needed my coat but it was in my car. 35 miles and my hand went numb three times, gotta get different grips.

I have to ask.  Who is on the back of your helmet?

That's what I thought!  I have that poster hanging in my bedroom.  I love me some Johnny Cash.

I was wondering if anyone would check the helmet, I positioned it just right for the picture.  ;D I went to the Indy Dealer show last year and a friend was a salesman for the helmet company. I asked him how I could get one of those helmets, they were a promo for the show, and he said just sign up to be a dealer and you can have one. They only made 150 for the show.

Beautiful bike !

I see that the seat is bolted in teh front to the frame right behind the air filter. How is it supported in the back ? Is there a subframe or bracket ?

It mounts at the shocks also with a bracket that's bolted to the seat.
