Thanks, not sure on fender kit. What i really like is bags come off in seconds and they dont have that big bulky frameing behind the bags like i have seen on other adventure bikes

Hi Brian. That seat looks super comfortable. So far for me the stock seat is fine, but then I see seats like yours...... I got some thinking to do

Thanks guys this bike came with all that stuff on it and for a 2016 with 4,000 miles i feel i got a great deal at 9,900. It belonged to the parts guy at the dealership and it has been well taken care of. Has eng gaurds and skid plate also
I had a klr before and this rides like a cadillac compared to that
