Time to start a thread. Today, I test-fitted the saddlebags I got for Christmas. Sadly, as I was re-installing my driver-seat after putting the battery back in, I dropped a seat screw in the seat hole. I had the brilliant idea to shake the bike back and forth to see if I could get it to rattle. No go. I then have the even more brilliant idea to just tilt it really far. I tilted it away from me, and the bike slowly fell to the ground, scraping the clutch cover, and leaving a slight mark on the side fairing. The aftermarket mirror also got "adjusted" out of whack, and will no longer hold its position. I'll try to fix that, but oh well.
Nelson-Rigg CL-905 saddlebags:
Bonus picture of the sweet sweatshirt my girlfriend got me:
. I picked it because of its positive reviews on amazon, and because the 3-pack of gallon bottles was only $55. That's like a whole gallon for free vs. buying them separately. The semi-synthetic also seemed like a good idea, as I'd like to extend my range between changes.
. I picked it because Purolator regularly gets good reviews, and this one is rated for synthetic oils and 10,00 mile use. I'll have the oil analyzed again after 7,500 miles, I think, and see how it does.
Had a fumoto on my last few cars, works great as long as it isn't in a position to get sheered off.
I don't care for the idea of using one on a motorcycle, for one I just don't want it ever opening up (despite the unlikely chance), I don't want someone to screw with it if I park in a public place and I don't want something potentially sheering it off. Also, I like having a magnetic drain plug on the bike.
