    Hit the flea market today and scored a rear mount kickstand ($12US) and a decent mirror ($11US) with long enough stem to clear my ape hangers. I know it may not sound like a big deal to some, but I've been a little antsy riding without a mirror. And the Subaru rack mount made me nervous with regards to the factory kickstand. Now the bike is stable as can be when parked, even when the front wheel flops over to the left (engine side) she stands firm! Oh, joy!
    Man these bike will nickel and dime you to death tho, won't they?

    Actually, Mountainman, while I was at the flea market I was eyeballing an even wider spring seat. LOL Some are in the 18-26 dollar price range. But the one I have now IS quite comfy as is so I guess I'll put that idea on hold. Next up is a front rack. Can't seem to find any to fit a suspension fork so I guess I'll have to get out the torch and get creative.
