Glad we got a VRod

My wife and I have logged over 800miles in the past 4 weeks. I recently added a mustang seat and backrest for rides over 100miles and it was well worth the money. Rode 325 miles yesterday and was so comfortable. I get comments every where we go about the bike.

Lux is just "Subparman"; He has a red arse, a "gap" where the cape isn't and he can't see past plexiglass!

Not fond of that style of paint and that's quite the Barcalounger for a seat (that no one sees when you sit on it, But:

It's for the wife on long rides, I just put on my saddleman low seat and take off the backrest and windshield for shorter stuff.

Oh, I appreciate the thought of making the wife comfortable........and would do the same except............the wife won't ride on the bike! With me or anyone! But that's okay, I need my time alone! And so does she! (I think I'm lucky that way!).

Hey jack, a happy wife equals a happy life!

I like what you've done with it and can't say that I've seen another like it. It's a good way for you to have your sporty bike while keeping the wife on the bike with you.

Don't mind the other guys, they prefer that solo seat because they can't get a woman to hop on their bike!

Yeah, my wife is a cool ass chick man. She is very supportive in all my crazy hobbies and she likes getting out of the road with me. I get plenty of non wife time, 2hrs a day in the gym and also I still pit for a couple friends that still race so I get days out at the track with the fella's.

I'm in the same boat and fortunate that my wife likes to ride as well. I'll keep that sissy bar on the back of the bike as long as she's willing to hop on!

This is how it normally looks, wiithout the tour stuff. Takes about 15min to convert it back, no biggie.
