Can't wait for riding weather!!

Hi all it's been a while! I've had this itch to get on the bike for a few weeks now but living in Iowa it's pretty much impossible. Just got another 2 inches of snow last night.

Anyhow i was looking to get new side covers for my V-star 1100 Silverado (somewhere around $100-$125 for set) but all i've come across are plastic Chrome painted ones. Are these decent quality or will they scratch if say i drop it on accident getting to the tool kit or somthin? Heres the link to the covers if your not sure what i'm talking about: http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/de...&related=short ....

One last question, it says these covers use existing hardware to mount, but my OEM covers fit real loosely on the left side and wiggle back and forth when fully attached to bike, i'd hate for it to fall off while i'm driving down the road any suggestions?

Thanks a lot and HURRY UP SUMMER!

Matt.

Definitely need to get summer here in a hurry. 4" of snow shut down GA quick. Haven't even been able to get out in the cage this week yet.

Sorry guys,

While I feel your pain and anguish of seeing your ride sitting unused in the garage while the outside is buried under several feet of snow.

We're out riding here in Vegas.

Just finished the HD sponsored "Frosty Balls" run last weekend. And, this weekend it may be in the mid-60's so we might make a day trip to Death Valley over in California.
