My wife and I bought a shiny new 2007 C50 (loaded) off of the showroom floor last evening, and I picked it today at noon... :p

Our bike is 2-tone silver & pearl, and it came with the following OEM accessories:
  • Passenger running boards
  • Highway lights
  • Front and rear fender trim
In addition to those, we've ordered the following accessories which will take a week or so to arrive:
  • Tall passenger back rest
  • Windshield
The saddle bags will have to wait for awhile, especially since I'm not sure if I want to drop the coin for painted cases to match, or just go with some really nice rigid leather bags...

Here's a few pics...













It's been a very long 4 years since we've owned a bike, but we're back in the saddle again... 8)

My previous 3 bikes were a Kawasaki KZ-550LTD, Yamaha Seca-Turbo 650, and a Honda Shadow VLX 600.

Depending upon the weather, I'll most likely be riding over your way this weekend for a good game of poker and lots of random debauchery in Mountain Home! :twisted:

Baxter county could rate right up there too, if backwoods stills get to be counted... :lol:

If ya'll aren't aware, we do have a phenomenal sushi bar here, and they now have a liquor license. It's nothing for a friend/client of mine and I to do $50 luncheons every Thursday, with most of that being Saki. :p

BTW: For those of you in the Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee & Texas region, I have been working on a new website (Arkansas Outdoors) that features a really nice {Regional Weather} page.

While the overall tone of the site is actually geared towards cyclists, rock climbers and paddlers, it can be used as a very quick resource for all things outdoors.

Some of you may want to check it out at http://outdoors.great-river.com -- Please keep in mind that it's far from being completed, because it's really more of a "project site" than anything, and I've been far too busy with real programming jobs, to be able to dedicate the necessary time to it.
