Air, I need air im tellin ya.Thanks for the write up wingadmin. Didn't go as easy as your pictures made it seem. Measure 10 times and cut once. But I like the end results.....air.

Thanks Ernest for the floor boards. Yes there a bit of a pain to move the bike around, but once under way. Just lay back and relax and be able to move these # 13s around some. I have been using foot pegs for over 50 yrs. and seems like im not getting any younger....go figure. Now if I had an electronic cruise control like my K1200GT, that would be smashing.

Yes TC, I am thinking about that also. I wonder how the vents do in the rain?? I was an all weather rider in the past. I see no reason to change...Rusty

Im just the opposite, Im a fair weather rider. I ride for the pleasure of riding. And I see no pleasure in getting soaked to the bone or 30 mph winds. The vent closes off inside. So you should have no problem riding as usual.
Look at wingadmin how to. Mine is the same thing only different.
