Nice, but watch scrubbing the hard parts, like the board mounts. Get too aggressive with it and you'll lift a wheel, and both you and the bike will have road rash...

I hate that motorcycle they make me ride. I'm here to tell you there ain't nothing in the world I hate worse than that elephant under my ass.

Good point. Especially if you have installed the floor board spacer kit. I drug my left mounting bracket bad in a left hander and never touched my floorboard. Beware and be careful!
