Shawn, thanks for the info on the seat. Looks great, and yes, I'd hate the hole in the back myself too. Could you describe the changes in riding posture with the corbin? Higher/lower than stock? More forward/rearward than stock?
Wizzard, thanks for your comments. So do I read your wheels WEREN'T damaged from the actual tire replacement? That'd be good news. Now we have to be worried about removal from the bike, huh? Might be a good idea to wrap the wheel with masking tape, just to make sure. By the way, I always remove the brake caliper on my BMW, even though you could wiggle it out with it in place (risking scratches, of course). Sounds like removing the front one is a chore though, but 1-1/2 hours sounds ridiculously high, especially for a dealer with all the 'right' tools. I much prefer to remove wheels myself and transport them in my car.
Wonder if anybody here has removed wheels himself; would be nice to know. Keep the comments coming gentlemen. Good day.
