A Couple Upgrades

I went and had the seat reupholstered in black leather with an extra 1 1\4" foam padding and i'm thinking maybe i might distress the leather a bit! we'll see after i put a few miles on her, also went with the solid brass gas cap I think that looks better that the OEM cap and much easier not messin around with the key. I installed a shift lever knob too got tired of cleaning the black rubber marks off my shoe!

Like the seat, was thinking of having my spare seat reupholstered in burgundy, to match the tank and have some more padding put in, find the ride very hard after a few miles in the saddle.

The extra padding was one of the key factors for having it redone, I also love the leather, i hope its not raining tomorrow I'll take it out for a longer ride and see if the extra padding helped.
