Yamaha Touring Handlebars, Seat & Farkle

I decided to single-handedly revive the bike economy, so for the last two weeks I have spent wildly and have become a pauper. But a proud pauper...

Replaced OEM seat with Ultimate Mid-Rider (I absolutely love it!!!)



OEM handlebars with Yamaha touring handlebars:



A higher rise and narrower stance. MUCH easier than the OEM crucifixion reach...

Replaced OEM grips with Kuryakyn ISO grips:



And a bit of farkle for the front fender to match the rest of the bike trim:



Overall:



Aside from maybe a PCIII next year when the warranty runs out, I'M DONE and Hallelujah!!

Looks awesome...well, maybe except for the bug.

I've decided not to do anything else to the bike for a while, since the way this spring has been all it would do is make the garage prettier.

You reminded me of the Bobbit woman years ago who cut her husbands old fella off for having an affair. We heard a different story out here and it went like this............

After cutting her hubby's old fella off Mrs Bobbit took off in her car at great speed racing down the highway still holding the old fella in her hand.

Wanting to dispose of the evidence she then threw the old fella out of the drivers window.

Unbeknowns to her an elderly couple were driving behind. The old fella, flying threw the air then crashed into the windscreen of the elderly couple's car, leaving a mess. The elderly husband, stunned by the impact then said to his wife,

"Gee Dear, did you see the size of the dick on that bug"!!!!

Glad you enjoyed it my fellow countryman, pissed myself laughing the first time I heard it. How was your Easter, ANZAC Day which had record attendances this year all over the country, long time since we have lost some of our troops which has no doubt increased the attendances. Hopefully not too many more fatalities to come out of Afghanistan. All the best mate.
