Just Dropped In

to see what condition my condition was in.

I would like to thank all who have added information to this forum and taking time from the "seat" to help educate a newbie like me.

I gained a whole potful of knowledge about my C50. I have found the posts about wiring a light bar with a stock windshield particularly helpful. Most other posts I have found interesting (Lemon Pledge- who would have thought??)

My next challenge will be how to add some saddlebags after taking off the passenger seat and back rest. That will come in time.

Once again I wanted to thank all who have helped make my decision on going with the C50 purchase (used) a positive feeling.

Welcome to VR.

Just a quick note. Do not remove all 4 bolts at the same time when you do the backrest. You'll have lot's of fun trying to get them to line up again.

Do a search about it.

I have bags the hang over the fender.

Welcome from way up north in Abilene!

Ever notice some people are so narrow minded that their ears rub together?
