The 1500 is all "Undressed" for maint and upgrades, I'm redoing the stereo installation done by PO. Redoing the cobbled up wiring, the new wiring will have connectors so right saddlebag can be removed (wasn;t possible before without complete disassembly of stereo gear). The Amplifier will stay in the right bag but the CD changer and Equalizer will move from the right bag to the trunk, and I built a much smaller subwoofer cabinet, the original one completely filled the entire trunk! New SW cabinet doesn't make as much bass thump as the old cabinet but I get 2/3 of my trunk space back.
So I've been out a few times on the 1100, haven't gone very far, just some 20-30 mile rides around the metro area.... Hope to have the 1500 all back together this week.
