It sure is. I love it. The stock seat is terrible!!  The Corbin makes long rides much more enjoyable.

Not so much to my bike but for my bikes. New tires and rims for the tow rig so it won't get stuck getting anywhere, and a trailer so I won't have to beg people to haul stuff for me anymore now that I don't have access to a sprinter van whenever I want.

Lots of stuff one the way for the kdx.... Lots of wrenching to do before this weekend.

Worked on the Goldwing today.  The windshield is supposed to be adjustable but it was sticking.  I removed the nose fairing and disassembled the mechanism, cleaned it and lubricated it.  Also removed the heated grips (which were too small) and installed a set of Progrip 698s which are about 3/4" longer.  Lastly, I removed the side wings because they were ugly and they'll get in the way of my highway pegs (coming soon).

Little more work on the Wing tonight.  The hazard button and the foglight button were both sticking, so I took them apart and cleaned them with contact cleaner.  Also got my trailer hitch installed.





Spent some time working on the KTM also.  Replaced the clutch lever which broke last weekend while riding single track.  Then I installed some stronger handguards with bar end inserts (had to tap the bars first).

Forgot to take pictures while I was working because things just weren't going right.  But I moved my high way pegs so they don't drag the ground in curves, new LED headlight, and new additional LED brake lights.   Purchased new LED light pods to go on the front for additional lighting at night.
