Ugh, I've responded and it hasn't posted. I need to learn this forum better!
I tried the lowered XC, loved it, but the weight is a HUGE factor when you're 105-pounds. I've done my time on big bikes and am going for comfort now.
I've given up on the XC and Crossroads, am happy with the Vegas. Just seeing what I can do to make it more 'right' for me.
Will probably go for a windshield/windscreen and drop the idea of a fairing. Thinking of throwing some apes on and mounting handlebar speakers from UTV purpose supplier. Bag in the back might be the Easy Strong with a custom Z bracket to get them closer to the rear fender...might have my body and paint guy shape the rear fender a bit to fit better. This wouldn't affect the lean.
Not looking for a Diavel replacement, I still have that bike for when I want fast. Just looking for comfort and long-distance.
Am swinging by Bitchin' Stitching when I pick up the bike, they think they can shape the seat for me and charge $150. All I need it about 1/2 inch on either side shaved down so it doesn't hurt my inner thighs. It's perfect while riding, just stopping at lights was getting to me after only 3 miles...
Calling Llyodz in the morning...hoping not to install a supercharger, lol.
