I finally finished my "commuter bike" project (INSPIRED BY DRAIN FADE AND ZX10MIAMI) using the passenger seat of my 08 ZX10R. I purchased a spare passenger seat and an Emgo topcase for the project. I decided to keep the padding and the vinyl on the passenger seat instead of stripping it. I am very pleased with the way it came out and the functionality of it is AWESOME! I carry a lot of papers and books with me to work everyday so this will be a more convenient alternative to my tank bag. Thanks for all the tips and help...I LOVE THIS FORUMccasion1...
