Thanks for the kind words guys. I think where the bike is on driveway makes the bags look a little lower than they really are. It slants down and then up- right where the rear tire is, to collect water. But yeah- it's seriously low- that's why I got the tricky air- to firm up ride when the lady is on the back. I swear that's the only reason I got it.
Looks like the exhaust gets in next Monday- if all goes as planned and the bike is back together by then (paint guys says 2-3 days) I'll be on the street by this time next week. Of course how often do things go as planned.
Anyways, thanks for following along- it's been an interesting journey. I have no real biker friends- my biggest supporter has been my lady-
and now you guys. However I think I'm going to the local star meeting tomorrow to remedy that situation.
