And while I'm thinking of it....if I'm going to get a new one I plan on getting the folowing right out of the gate: QR sissy bar with rack, short TORS, saddlebags and a QR wind screen.
Any input on the options? There are two pads offered for the backrest. Is there really a difference? Midsize screen vs standard?
If I remember correctly the material is slightly different between the factory seat and the long haul seat and one back rest pad matches one seat and the other matches the stock seat.
getting the options from the start will probably save you soem bucks as it seems most dealers offer a good discount on any items purchased with the bike. Just remember dont let the shop/dealer keep any of the parts they are changing. I have seen some of them try but they are yours and unless they are going to give you top dollar for them I suggest taking them home and safely putting them away.
