Cool. Time to start tinkering.

Did you ever figure out your vibration issue?

Well...good. Vibes on these bikes being solid mounted can cause some settling adjustments. Maybe it just found its groove better.

Long as nothing is obviously loose or missing a bolt, might as well ride.

i ordered the short black sissy bar and the compact fat bob style back test pad as well. Hope you ordered the holdfast docking hardware as well, since that is separate from the sissy bar and is needed to install the sissy bar. I ordered the new fat bob sun downer seat too, since I do a lot of 2-up riding. Everything should be here in the next couple of weeks. Will post pics. Any recommendations for a nice swing arm bag? Need to fit in my 13 inch MacBook Pro, itís the only thing I carry to work. Donít wanna put the holdfast rack onto my sissy bar (although it doesnít look bad).

I made a big order yesterday. They had all the seats in stock, but no sissy bars, wind splitter, luggage rack, docking hardware, or mustache engine guard. Checked again today and still out of stock online.
