Obi wan indu, words of wisdom speak you...!
Yeah, if I'm honest I'm only really impressed with the K for it's reputation. It doesn't speak to me like the Guzzi does so I doubt I'd be happy.
I got a quote for the Corbin seat, the one pictured above is pricy, but affordable. Sadly it doesn't fit the EV!
So I got another quote-nearly twice as much!
Then I remembered Airhawk seat pads. Pillion size can be had for just over a quarter of the cost of the Corbin, so we're back on for the Cali again.
I've been in touch with the seller and it was just worn out friction plates. Rebuild is under way and I'll hopefully get to see the bike soon.
Thanks again for all your comments.
Beware the dark, mechanical bird.
