How's your MPG's without the rack?
Yeah me too. But shipping for the dang thing is $130 anywhere in the US says UPS. :( Well I took the fairing off and it went to 32! lol I just took the rack itself off as of 2 hours ago. It will probly bump up again, and I put a header on last weekend. So I will probly be getting 33 or 34. Im more than happy with that. Thats still with all the seats, alot of stereo stuff, heavy 17'' rims....lol

A few minute drive in any direction will land me on roads like this, even though Colorado Springs has a population of over 400,000. Still I am considering moving to El Paso TX.

When I was looking at a set of wheels last week, I was quoted for $100 to ship here. Shipping is a killer no matter how you look at it.

I would have thought that a big state like Texas would be more spread out, but it is great having all these side roads spread out all over the place. It's one of the reasons I could never live in or near a city.
