    Ouch!

    Well I hope the Injun is good to you. Does it fit you well already or are you going to have to change some things up?

    What's up with the clutch cable adjuster hangin out in the wind with that accordion cover? Seems to me a strange place to keep it. Matter of fact, it kinda looks like HD setup, maybe.

    It definitely has less leg room than my XC. I'm planning on either an Ultimate tallboy seat or another aftermarket seat. Other than that, I'm loving it.

    You may be able to put the 19 Chieftain seat on it. I hear there’s a little extra room using it and it’s also all day comfortable.

    The new seat feels like the Victory Cross seat imo. Liked it alot.

    Careful-- these are really good looking bikes and fun to ride.

    *** Post a review after. Make sure you take some pix for your review!
