Rainy Day Delivery

My new seat from West Eagle arrived today and, wouldn't you know it, it's rainy. Luckily, it has cleared up enough for installation and a quick test run. As with the windsheild, this modification actually requires more time removing it from the package than it does to install. I can honestly say under a minute. My excitment added with the pressure of the looming clouds above might have improved my time just a bit. The style and look are exactly what I was going for. The only improvement I could have asked is for the rear section going up the fender to be a little thinner. It's no big deal though since this adds to the comfort factor. While on the subject, after a short run, I'm quite pleased. I was a little apprehensive at first, wondering if I were sacrificing comfort for looks, but after the test run I no longer worry. This little seat, in my opinion, out performs the stock one hands down. Over all I would say it's money well spent. The West Eagle seat at 154.99 is far below much of the competition.Though there are many seats and styles out there, if your looking for a low "in the saddle" feel, look no further. West Eagle gets a thumbs up.

motorcycle tip (just the guys)

Ok guys this is something that should be a "no brainer", however, until recently I was unaware of how effective it could be. On mothersday do everything in your power to keep your wife from having to lift her fingers to do anything. Afterward, even though it's mothersday, she'll buy you new parts for your bike. I'm not refering to mowing or taking out the trash. We need to go much beyond that into the realm of dishes, cooking, and laundry. Get my drift. My new seat from West Eagle is on the way. Try this technique next year and watch your motorcycle transform.I'll post more later when the seat arrives.
