Cracking day so decided to see if yon Harley would start?
:whistling:


Of course it did, so bit of air in the tyres and we were off to Stirling for a haircut, the full Clooney. Blatted over the Callander road, with the new Two Brothers exhaust howling and popping and banging in a joyous, great to be alive kind of way.
:vrolijk_26:
Went over to near Aberfoyle and parked the bike up and just smelled the roses, then headed back to Stirling.

Sports mode was used and while it's no sports bike, it can be hustled along at surprising speed with supreme stability, confidence and comfort. Small children smile and wave too, you don't get that on a Honda sewing machine.

The new panniers are also great, although I do have to remember they're there when filtering, John!

BTW. I reckon it will do 140 with a long enough straight away!

Also happy to report that I find the Sundowner seat really very plush and comfortable, perhaps even slightly more supportive than the OE seat. No doubt not as good as a Corbin, but they are double the price here in the UK, at least.

And you could blow me over with a feather, but the bike's clock was within 10 mins of being at the correct time today, what's the chances?

After many hours researching and reading reviews of several different seats. Think I've decided to go with sundowner. There's alot similar to what you said, it's basically half cost of most others including corbin plus I got 75$ voucher/coupon for HD!

Switch on the synchronization with the Harley app on the smartphone in the bike settings. I always have the right time in IM.
I don't mind, when I'm riding, time, is the least of my worries. I quite like it that the Dirtglide doesn't care either - time's a negative reality inversion, man! ☮

Let us know how you find it, more confort is never a bad thing. I haven't tried it in the higher height setting yet. I found that more confortable with the OE seat, but just slightly too tall for my, short fat hairy legs. The sundowner being a bit more compliant, it may just be the in the Goldilocks zone.

SPRING IS HERE!!!!, had a beautiful slightly breezy day yesterday but got some miles on ~150! All on new sundowner.🥰
I'll update if I need to but thinking it won't be necessary!

Yeah I know, not many miles but the first sit on it it felt good 🤗 and while riding I could feel the difference. So I'm assuming it's gonna be better on the long haul and yeah you're still gonna need your breaks/stretch etc. Im thinking this seat will make it alot better between them stops and not needing to stop sooner/more often, I hope I'm right.

And just think, I was having happy, smiling miles before.✌

It's just keeps getting better

At North of 50, I usually require a comfort stop before a pit stop is required for gas, especially as the PA will do 170-200 miles on a tank. I'm glad you're enjoying the sundowner as much as I am. I love that extra bit of comfort and it's also much more water resistant should the sky run cloudy, which can happen in, Scotland, at least. 🍺

I was blessed, made it into 70s but didn't feel like it with the wind.
Oh I understand, indiana fluctuates quite a bit in spring. Today was exact opposite of yesterday.
Yeah I'm ready to really test my comfort level with the new equipment on bike.
