Exclamation Updated Picture of the Beast

It been a minute since I posted a picture of the Beast so I am uploading an updated picture. He look so different than when I got him 9 months ago.

Very nice! What seat is that? I assume you decided to take off the Mustang seat that you won?

Like what you've done with it! I'm also curious about that seat. Also, why do you have the backrest pad on the outside?

Why do I have th backrest on the outside? On purpose, lol, I use it for a sissy bar bag, but I want anyone who think they want to ask for a ride, to think twice. I remove my passenger pegs as well.

The seat is just the reduced reach seat from Harley.

That is the reduced reach seat. The seat that I won, I am having it made into a reduce reach seat, because I am a shorty and need every inch on my bike until they come out with shorter shocks for the 750.

Nice job I really like that! What instrument gauges do you have and also what saddlebags are they?

Thanks,

Rick

I have a zumi GPS up there and 600 watts speakers for when I want to listen to music. the amp is in one of the saddlebags. I am not sure about the saddlebags, I just picked them up in a motorcycle store and purchase the easy brackets for my bike to put them on. The thing on my grip...that is my cruise control (lol)

I see, that's a good idea. I was hoping you removed it with the thought of selling it.

I'm going to put more miles on her before I really decide what to do about my seat. Maybe I'll wait for Stone Free's forward controls or other seat and back rest options in order to get added riding comfort. I haven't been on long trips and really haven't had an issue. Just trying to prepare for longer trips since I know the current/stock setup may be challenging for longer rides. My commute to work is about 30-40 minutes and when I arrive, I'm certainly ready for a short break. I think it's more my leg position as opposed to not having a backrest though.

I believe Sportster shocks will work on our bike.
