Both are Mustang seats, and both are comfortable.  The red bike has forward controls, so I don't sit in the same position on both, and comparisons are meaningless.

FYI, a pic of the bikes in the trailer, as parked, without tiedowns.  I use the trailer as a secure garage.

(For reasons unclear to me, the pic appears rotated, at least as I look to select it for inclusion.)

OK, I have not had success in selling the whole package, so it is time to break it down.  Will sell the Blue Bike 31K miles, for $2800, and the Red Bike, 50K miles, for $2200.  After these sell, I will price the rest of the package separately.  I tried to post pics, but for some reason, the post just died.  I will try again in separate posts.

What do you mean the top end was lost on the 17 Tooth?

Yeah 4 hours, this is for the birds but most of it was my own doing.

If I was doing 70 MPH, and I wanted to pick up speed, I pretty much had to drop a gear..
The Magna just doesn't have the torque to really pull off the gear ratio (In my opinion)..

BUT, if I was going to do a superslab trip (like the one I did to Arkansas, then saving a million revolutions on the motor, would likely be worth it..

I cut the chain off of Red yesterday (at the master link)..
I will take the chain to work today and give it a thorough cleaning..
I also did not find much grease on the pins of the master link.. and some wear on one of the pins. 
This will still be a BIG improvement over the chain Blackie has now..
I will trailer both bikes down on Tuesday after noon for blackie to get a chain install and red to get new sprockets and the new chain..

I will remind the mechanic to grease the pins well before installing them..

This is just a phobia I have about installing chains.. Seems like an important part of the motorcycle, and I leave it to a professional!
It' is also worth 4 hours of my time..

I wound up going back to a 16T CS sprocket.. I found there wasn't much top end with the 17 sprocket..
IF I were taking a long trip, I would put on the 17, but for everyday, I like the 16 better..
