PROTAC backrest

I bought a PROTAC backrest and found it to upright for me. The saddlebag brackets were holding it to far forward--quick solution was to grind out protac mount so it fit around the saddlebag bracket. Dished it out about 1/8" and found the angle fit perfectly. Our friends @ PROTAC made the mount extra thick so removing a 1/8" is no big deal. The next thing is to fabricate brackets that will go on the luggage rack and allow the wife to use the backrest when she accompanies me.

Warranty Repair

How long does it take your local dealer to handle warranty repair work. One dealer told me 1to1 1/2 weeks Another told me 1 Does everyone else experience such delays. I took it in because the oil light was staying on.

It's just that time of the year. Try to get anything done and it will take 1-2 weeks. They are pretty much saying, "Get in line."

Hey everyone. I'm Dr. Ron, and from the Kansas City, Kansas area. Three years ago, both my left and right retinas detached, leaving me 95% blind. I barely had enough sight to show my bike and sell it, assuming I would never be able to ride again. However, after 4 brutual surguries and lots of recovery time, I'm happy to say that I've regained enough sight back that I can safely ride again. My previous bike was a 1995 750cc Vulcan, in the deep blue and chrome everywhere. I bought the bike from a bike dealership in the NE corner of San Antonio, in perfect mint condition. I sold it exactly the same way in 2002. I desparately want to find another 750cc Vulcan in great condition, but haven't been able to find anything. Anyone out there have any ideas?
Thanks!

Check ebay. There are usually at least a dozen for sale at any one time. Glad to see a fellow Texan in the mix.

Have you tried eBay? Or maybe a local dealer can find one.

On another note, after having dissected more than my share of eyeballs, how did they reattach your retina? It is an extremely thin layer of tissue, and our students often pull it loose unknowingly.
