Sept. '09 BOTM Winner, rs900c!

Congrats RS!



I bought this new and have about 7000 mi on it. I've ridden bikes for 30+ years and my last bike, before a 5 year period without a bike, was a 1984 Goldwing Interstate. When I got back into bikes I was looking for a daily commuter (good gas mileage) and something light, agile handling, and big enough for weekend get aways.
The bike details are:
Candy Plasma Blue, Memphis Fats 17" w/blue lower windshield, Hopnel windshield bag, J&P scrolled custom mirrors, Kawasaki 1500 handle bars and risers, Cobra 14" short backrest with modified tall backrest pad and luggage rack, color matched Mutazu MU hard saddlebags, Nelson-Rigs deluxe roll bag and modified lower rear fender extension with LED lighted liciense plate frame.
A new addition this month was a K&N custom filter element and modified intake housing and a Cobra FI2000R currently set @ 1 1 0.

Beautiful bike MN!! Which handlebar risers did you go with? The straight cylindrical type, or the big Phat type?? Do you know how much it brought your bars back? Love the color of your bike!!

Stock 2007 Kawasaki 1500 handle bars and risers. These pull back several inches compared to the stock tee bars.

That`s a beautiful bike rs. I love the color. From your user name I assume it is a vn900 Custom, but what year is it?

I would find it interesting to know a riders physical size, such as height or inseam, when reading the mods they have made to handle bars and risers, the windshield chosen, backrest and seat changes, etc., etc. It would aid other readers in deciding if such a mod may suit them. Along with your comments about what factors entered in to your decision to choose a particular item, and if is meeting your expectations for function and/or form.

Happy Trails, and keep the rubber on the road.
