Hey Nurse!! How are ya!?..I havent been in for awhile...Im still around, and thanks for askin! Still ridin' but its like riding in a pizza oven down here in Hell, Tx! Lol!I'm actually in here right now fixin to post! I'm needing a more comfortable seat for my 300 Lb fat ass!..Now that Ive been on it for awhile, it feels like Im smashing my prostate right up my ass!! I gotta see if any big people have tried the K&Q seat! Ok..here I go! seeya after later! Thanks again for checkin on me!
Thanks, mirrors are acutally one of the cheapest mods done so far... Think I paid like $40 off flea bay... I actually did most the mods myself... Once I get to tinkering I usually don't stop until the wife slams the checkbook closed (which is getting pretty damn close)! Later-
Sorry was out running around with the family at a local Mullet Festival in Niceville. Yeah we'll have to play sometime, I haven't really played the game since I have beat it like 3 times with my Barbarian, but I'll hit you up when I play again.
Thanks FuryousNurse, I'll try that as well. I finally have a grip on uploading pictures -- mostly. I now have to get a grasp on resizing them. The pics I tried to upload were too large for forum specs. DaveRed2011 has been a great help as well. I have been struggling with resizing photos from my iPhone. Still I haven't quit! I won't stop until I get this straight!
Thanks for dropping in FuryousNurse; I appreciate the company! I have been learning so much just reading everyone's post that I haven't stopped to do much else. Yes, I very much am looking forward to updating my home page with pics and an avatar. I'm still getting a handle on how to navigate the options such as posting pics. RedSpawnsilver has a great intro for posting pics in the frequently asked questions section which I have been reviewing. I'm going to post pics just as soon as I nail that down. There is a really nice Fury I want to post (I'm not the owner) which I'm sure everyone will appreciate!
I don't have a Danny Gray Buttcrack seat, I have the Danny Gray Weekday 2 up XL. This seat sat me up higher about an inch and forward about an inch. I sit a little closer to the handlebars, but I'm still going to get some risers one of these days, bad disc's in neck and hurts on long rides. It's more comfortable than the stock seat, it's stiffer and wider than the stock seat but it seems to get more comfortable as it breaks in, I don't have a whole lot of miles on it since buying it, you can check it out whenever we meet up if you don't buy one before then.
Aww, fishing is awful,...bees are mean..and its soo hot for anything alive to be outside!!! I figure any day now the lake I go to is gonna close up from Bleu/Green algea...it doesnt kill fish but it makes people sick if they swallow it..all in all, the heaty gives me plenty of time to watch the redsox lose and mess around in here and do FB!...Yeh, the website needs work....but, you know how it is...Everythings better in the head than it is in the hand! Lol!...Seeya 'roun Nurse!
Glad to hear you got them and are liking them so far. So are you wearing them on your arm or do they fit over your jacket/long sleeve shirt? The only real thing I'm worried about is my head/face if a wreck was to happen. Thanks for the update on them.
I'm probably the wrong person to ask, I do wear a jacket with built in protection when it's chilly out, but now that it's warm I just wear my helmet and a long sleeve shirt, reflective vest, over the ankle boots and eye protection if I'm riding to work, and only my helmet with a short sleeve shirt and jeans if I'm riding off the military installation. I read the reviews on them and looks like they are liked and decently comfortable, but to me if I'm that worried about getting hurt I won't ride, it's not because I want to be a rebel it's just because I want to ride and have a good time and feel the breeze blowing in my face and wearing all the other things would make me uncomfortable and feel restricted.
I guess to answer your question I do think they would help if a person was to lay their bike down, anything between a person skin and the road is going to be better than nothing, my biggest fear is my head and my hands.
Thanks for the advice dude but I already have the cobra fuel controller. I have the Low and Mean intake and been running the exhaust with no baffles for the past few months. She runs ok but I feel the loss in power with no baffles. I modified my cobra baffles but it's just not doing it. I am now going to get the Bigcity baffles to get the back pressure again. My research points to having some sort of baffles so that is where I'm at now.
