Thanks! I've been riding in the rain. The worst part was having to get gas! With all my gear, I don't really get wet- at least not my head or body! My jeans were soaked last night- today I am at work, wearing slacks, so I wore my chaps over- they got wet.

Why would I benefit from having adjustable rear sets?

jackup plates are literally plates that put the rearsets just a little higher up... higher up would help the one leg that's thrown over the bike (helps your actually reach it better b/c it's higher up) when you're 'one footing' it at a stop sign...

Are you trying to say I'm short? It's low enough now for me to put both tippy toes on the ground! I just need to shave the seat so I can back up!

ah... well you don't need to shave the seat to back it up... just push it back when you're off the bike...

be careful riding in the rain. i've drowned a cylinder in water before(on the way to last years MH bbq) and had to drive 30-40 miles back on one cylinder. i read it's a common problem with SVs, but there's some kind of deflector you can put on it so water doesn't get in.
