Hi All, well I have been active for some time on this forum but didn't properly introduce me and my bike.

I'm 36 and work 4 days in the week as a network administrator and 1 day in the week for my own IT company.

My bike prepped for a 400KM roundtrip to germany, man did my ass hurt on the stock seat :)

Thanks guys!

Yeah that bag is great, costs a lot extra for me because of the high shipping and tax/customs but its worth it!

Sometimes when I get lucky my fury orders from the usa don't get selected during the random customs checks. Then that strong euro coin is great :)

Hi Gar, sadly I can't park my bike at my home, so its not so easy for me to take pictures. I think I will be able to do it wednesday or thursday, ill keep you posted.

(About the shift points, its just because that according my dealer low rpm shifting would explain why sometimes my 4 and 5th gear dissapear. Then i have to reapply my clutch or gear lever to succesfully upshift)

Hey Serge,

How do you like that Biker's Friend luggage? I was thinking about getting one but didn't want to put out the money if it wasn't worth it....could you rest your back against it? Did it work like you expected?

Yep its great, but I bought it in combination with the bikersfriend fender guard. So that when my girl is on the backseat, I can attach the fender guard and place the bag on the guard with the straps fastened against the sissy bar.

But I haven't tried it yet, this saturday my sissy bar is going to be installed.
Hopefully together with the kuryakyn engine covers (at least when europe is reachable by freight plane)

My bag size is the medium large one.

Hi Tony, this saturday Im off to a seat shop so that they can give me advice on the seat (thinking about a black alligator leatherlike material). Perhaps if Im confident of those guys I will have it adjusted next week on saturday.
The shop has been on national television in The netherlands, on a program similar like Pimp my ride.

Im planning to take a picture of your seat/bike, so that they can sorta imitate the design. But Im thinking to widen the seat a bit, so that it will partially cover the metal support of the sissy bar.

By the way I asked them about the usage of gel inserts, they were not fond about it because of the quick decrease in support during warm weather.

Thanks for your take.....I've been wanting something for those days I go to town to get stuff....would rather take the bike than the car....
