    It a class 'C' License only, cars vans light Trucks. And I can Tow a 10K pound vehicle. I'm pretty sure the lady at Dmv would have reminded me I already have a motorcycle License on there ! :LOL:

    I knew it wasn't on there.;) What do you think i am? A Fart Knocker?:LOL::Dlol

    Mine is class D on the front but the back has the endorsement M- Motorcycle.

    Pretty sure she doesn't give a F. Make them do a history search!

    Took a chance and bought this used Corbin seat for my cmx250 Rebel. The stock seat is a 'bobber' style and is a saddle seat in actuality with the back part separate, its not a true saddle seat.
    The new Corbin seats is about $500 by the time it gets in your hands, got this one used for half the Price. :) The seat pan is fiberglass and the cover is Leather. i want to treat it for protection but i don't want to slip off it either!:cautious: What can you use on Leather that protects but not slippery?

    Gonna wait for a decent day to instal the crash bar & the Corbin Seat. Right now there is a huge wind & cold and a bit on the apocalyptic side...:ninja:

    I would think that Xymol leather treatment/conditioner would be good. Application directions are to apply it to clean leather then park the vehicle in full sun, allowing the heat to bake it in. Works well with a black leather interior of a black car and without the dreaded ArmorAll ice skating effect.

    I pulled the trigger and bought a La Pera seat for my ride also. It is a better value than a Corbin and is just as nice or better. It's called the ''Daytona'' seat. It looks and feels awesome. Great back support! Kind of a must with forward controls! I prefer the smooth look without extra stitching and IMG_0299.jpg buttons, my original seat had the pillow top look with buttons.
    I use Griot's Garage Leather care, BTW.

    Thanks for the product recommends, Leather is different than the vinyl seats that i'm used to.
    Btw, that 'Daytona' seat fits & looks great. And Hell yeah lower Back support is a big plus not usually found with the stocker seats.(y)

    Griot's Garage offers quality products. FYI, some are manufactured by Xymol (as well as other outfits). The leather treatment may the same product with different labeling. You're not going to go wrong, with either, for sure.

    Went ahead and installed these amber L.ED light bar. they're 12V flexible, 3M adhesive and can be used for blinkers and running lights(y) It will increase the bike's Night time driving signature.
    They also have the Red option too if you like getting pulled over by the cops.:geek::LOL:
