New seat on the way

Well....I spent the $$$. I ordered an Ultimate Big Boy w/ Drivers backrest. I can't wait to get it, although it's going to be a month or two before I can use it. I think it's going to look sweet. I got it with red ostrich inlays, red stitching, and instead of the "Ultimate X" on the back of the dirvers seat, I got a Red Dragon with a green eye. This of coarse will make it non returnable, but I've heard so many good things about Ultimate...I'm not worried. My biggest concern is that there's going to be too much red. We'll see.......

My Mustang Vintage Sport pushes me too far forward and I feel cramped. Also my feet keep hitting the engine guards when breaking....causing, what I feel, is an unsafe condition.

My problem is I have no where to put the snow. I have to do the driveway first by putting all the snow in the backyard, then blow all the sidewalk snow into the driveway...and I have a lot of sidewalk to cover, then do the driveway again. It's a real pain in the butt, but it's the best system that I can come up with.

Funny, I haven't heard about any possible snow hitting last night. Since the beginnining they were calling for snow Sat. into Sun.
....and we got the foot of snow. I have a lot of work to do today. :mad:
My seat came in today. Ultimate does very nice work. I can't wait to try it out...hopefully in a month or two.
I took off my stock seat when it had about 300 miles on it...sold it for $75 to a member of the VTXOA who was going to recover/rework it. I was going to save it, but I needed the space and $$$ for another hobby. So, I took what I can get....and it seems the $50-$75 is about the going rate.
Right now I have the Mustang Vintage Sport, but I might hang on to it it for a little bit.

I'd like to break it in watching TV, but my wife won't let me bring my bike into the living room.
I wish I had a garage. My next house will.

I keep my bike in a shed in the backyard. :icon_chee It's going to be too cold on Sunday to watch TV in the shed.
