Back from Afghanistan on monday night, went to Stafford Springs CT (Shark Cycle) yesterday to pick up my '11 XC. It was off/on raining/showers but it didn't deter me. I had been working with the dealer since the end of June and my new bike was coming home yesterday.

Here is a picture from this morning, still covered with dew but she still looks awesome. Rides every bit as comfortable as I remember from April when I rented a 2010. I put 165 miles on her yesterday and will put another 250+ today. Have first service scheduled for tomorrow and will have about 475 miles on her when I get back to the dealer.

Here you go. :) They did well, got some air through, wouldn't recommend them for anything over 80 degrees as there is a noticeable increase in the heat felt, but under 80 they work beautiful. The buffeting on the legs is almost eliminated and they held up fine at speeds running 75-80MPH, not that I recommend speeding. cheers

Tony...did you hit anymore rain going home? Those lowers should keep your pants and boots dry. thumb up

Soft lowers aren't the best looking but they work really well. FYI they work well at 115 too...
