Lately it seems the mood of VFRD has been somewhat hostile. It just seems that the normally good nature of most posts have been negative. I'm sure this negativity isn't intentional an anybody's part (at least I hope not), maybe it's because winters coming up or something. Who knows? :unsure:
Anyway, on the lighter side of things, I got some Helibars installed on my bike. A kind gentlemen from Australia who rides a Blackbird made me a very tempting offer. He wanted to buy the Helibars that Bailey was selling a few weeks ago and then swap them for my stock clip-ons. All I had to pay for was shipping costs to send my stock bars to him in Australia. How could I refuse an offer like that?! :D These Helibars rock! I can't wait to try them out.
Anyway, now that means I have a set of Gen-Mars lying around that I don't need. I have a few other items laying around my garage that I don't need, so I'll probably be posting a "yard sale" thread sometime next week. I would do it now, but I'm so busy and stressed out. Everything will be better after next Monday.
I also got a Sargent seat a few weeks ago. Up until now, I've been less than impressed. I hate to say it but my stock seat was more comfortable. I usually seat on the front part of the seat, which isn't comfortable to do on the Sargent. But, these Helibars really seem to push me back a bit on the seat, so maybe the Sargent is going to work out just fine. Plus, my girlfriend seems to like the Sargent better anyway (which is actually the most important thing). The only complaint she has, as do I, is the Sargent is too slippery. I need to get some kind of grippy cover for it, then it'll be perfect. :thumbsup:
I'm also getting anxious for my new mirrors to arrive. I ordered some new mirrors from Germany since my right mirror got snapped off a while back. They are going to be so sweet to put on. I can't wait! Hmmm, that reminds me, the weather is getting pretty cold now. I'm going to need to dig out my electric vest and fix it. I'm not sure what happened to it, maybe a wire got pinched or something.
