Those Puig mirrors look really nice. Do they change the rear view much?

Not that I have any issue with the standard mirrors but we all like buying shiny new bike bits  :001:

Yeah I've seen nothing but good reviews of his work and he's considerably cheaper than RDL, plus I like the look of his seats more.

I've done this and it helps a little as far as the forward tilt but it hardly makes it a comfortable seat IMHO. I just made a ride-in appointment with Laam Custom Seats for March, hopefully the weather cooperates going over the Siskiyou Summit.

Smart choice, man he makes a great seat I love mine!

This finish looks fantastic. Do you know what material they used?
My carsh bars have a rust coloured discolouration spreading along them. Initially I thought it might be grime in the texture but I'm convinced its not that.
This type of coating not only would make the bike stand out in the crowd (even more) but would prevent further deterioration of the finish.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks man.  It's just a matte white powdercoat.  Matches exactly the texture and color of the white frame.  Not sure what brand of powder my buddy uses but it's just powdercoat.  Powdercoat certainly eliminates any possibility of rust, etc and its super durable.  Doesn't scratch or chip easily like paint does.  So if you're in alot of wet weather, powdercoat protects your metals from discoloring or rusting.

Add the Triumph Upper Crash Bars.  Since my bike has the white frame, I powder coated the upper/lower crash bars, passenger pegs/mounts and pannier mounts matte white to match the frame exactly.

I’m going to try something that a couple of others have mentioned. I put the low seat on it with the front of the seat in the high position and the back in the low position.  Sitting on it in the driveway feels encouraging.  I’m going to ride it tomorrow and will report back.

#RedShane, is that what you did?

I have my seat with both mechanisms in the low position which levels it. I haven't tried it the way you're suggesting.

Awesome, thanks.

For the rear, is it all the same stuff?

Thanks - should I replace the EVAP hoses too as per the Service interval recommendation? Is this even an issue?
