lots of great comments here....btw...that pic Springer posted looks exactly like one my bobber friends! I rode it to work again this morning (monday) and after 25 miles on the interstate, I decided that I really like it. I was kicking around the idea of a shorty, like stargazer's, but went with the medium because a guy in town was selling one used that was just like new condition. I really like the option of removing it easily like stratowart pointed out. Thanks fellas.
