Almost completely farkled

This week I was practically in farkle heaven. I got the Sargent, the Madstad AWM, the Fenda Extenda and the NEP throttle lock. I've almost got it just the way I want it. I really WANT a larger Givi trunk (with the brakelight and backrest), but I don't really NEED it.
I've got two 360's but usually just use one mounted up top... here's some pics:

You must be referring to the blue and red ones. My black one merely clears it's throat before ripping up what's ahead. :wink:


BTW, might be needing some Coats220 help as I don't think my front skin will get me back to the Valley of the Sun. You avail? Oh, and I've got that backrest NIP in my garage if you want to work a deal.

Bill, that looks great BUT you will NEVER be finished Farkling. Just a fact :>)

I am waiting for your report on the Sargent seat. I am considering one and a Givi shield to go with the MadStad bracket. Got any front on photos of the Givi? Is it as wide as the top of the fairing? I love the bracket but need some extra screen width to make it real smooth.

I live about 120 miles from Nashville (Paris, TN) and am always ready for a weekend ride and a weekend farkle show and tell.

Heck, we were just up that way about 3 weeks ago. StromGuy, Lencho, Stromette, and I rode to Ft. Donelson in Dover so she could get a Passport stamp at Ft. D. Wish we had known, we could have met for lunch or something.

I'm available- after 6:00 PM M-F or early Sat or Sun will work if you'll be here that long- it would be cooler. I'd definitely be up for a trade for the backrest- that will make me have to go ahead and buy the topbox!

The report on the seat is here:

Here's a pic of the Givi (before I got the Madstad- I can take more tonight):

I can take some more if you like.
We should get together sometime to ride- hell Paris is just a short jaunt away!
