Yes, nothing but positive feedback. The seat is extended about two inches as well so there is now enough space to grab the strap if she desires. Also, the "sliding off" effect is null due to the slight backrest (more of a back stop really) in the rear. It is a fiberglass pan underneath molded around the plastic the factory seat is attached to, so this new one can be removed just as easily as the OEM seat. My design

Thank you! The plate was from a company on eBay. Here is a link to the store: http://stores.ebay.com/Figure-Engine...p2047675.l2563

I have since changed to a side mount plate and made brackets out of Lexan; bolted to the holes intended for the saddle bag supports with the factory turn signals. The grips and mirrors are Performance Machine. And of course, the best part is the Bassani Road Rage II exhaust system. Let me know what you guys think!
Looks good Muscle... Do you have the specs for the brackets that you made for the rear turn signals and would you be willing to email them to me. I'm looking to move my turn signals as well.

New LED's and inverted mirrors (custom made brackets). And yes, there are LEDs in the transmission sprocket cover!

I have ND as well, but the abs myth arises. I'm was afraid to grab both brakes like I was use to on scorchers. I think since dragons are grippier then it's all cool

Looks good man.

Im 6'2" and I have not had any luck inverting my mirrors, I have tried stock and now the tribal ones from HD, there is no way for me to get an angle that I can actually see anything at all other than my elbows or the concrete. I am wondering if those brackets that are being made to keep the OEM location of the signals and invert the mirrors would help, I could move the mirror out further with that. I would not use it for the signal though, I have already relocated my signals to the forks. Just wondering.
