    Ha! No. If you paid full price for yours, mine was about $2k less than your.

    Yeah. Bigger than I expected, but comfy as hell. I think they really take away from the looks of the bike unfortunately, but they are easy to swap out. I got a steal on them. I bought both of them for less than the driver's seat alone would cost...by as few hundred bucks. I plan on getting a solo that is more low slung next year and only putting these on when going on a long ride or having a passenger.

    Nice. Bet it goes pretty well. Modding these gets expensive quick. Haha

    That is an understatement. I think I easily have about $3k in parts identified.

    Priority updates for next Spring are better pipes, an intake, and a tune. Beyond that, everything is essentially cosmetic...unless I decide to shell out for an air ride kit.

    Otherwise, new foot controls, grips, speedo face, 8° triple trees & fork extensions, and various chrome and black bits.

    Also thinking about swapping out the handlebar controls for Harley controls. That will require some fun rewiring to get everything to work...including a module for auto shutoff of the turn signals.

    I figured it would be for comfort. The rear section just stick out. The other seat would prob be fine on its own.

    Yeah, gotta keep the passenger comfortable. It comes off with single bolt. Takes 30 seconds. It looks alright with just the driver's seat.

    This would be my preference:

    This thread is giving me the itch. I really want to get a bike but it's not financially viable for me.

    Still not an option yet. Probably have to pay off a car first or get a hefty bonus at work, and my license.
