Hi Wolf, I join my fellow member, OVSM in welcoming you to the forum. I will be looking forward to your pics. You mentioned you traded up, so what did you trade up to? A newer 650? Inquiring minds want to know,lol. Ride safe, and in looking for gel pads, theyre all over many motorcycle websites such as cruiser customizing, ebay, and so on. Shop around as there can be many differences in prices. Let us know what you find.
