Hey gang. Just picked up a Hyper and will be flying into Colorado and riding it home (Arizona) later this month.

I did some searches in this forum, but some came back empty.
I need advise on a long range comfort seat.
Also need ideas/suggestions for mounting a GPS
Also need ideas/suggestions for hard wiring a cell phone/radar, etc.

Thanks in advance!

Oh yeah. Any other simple mods I can do when I pick up the bike to make a 1200 mile trip more pleasant would be welcomed.

I second the Sargent seat, very comfortable. The windscreen is helpful, but the best thing you could do is take some of the beautiful country roads from CO to AZ and avoid the highways. The bike likes to be leaned over and is not that much fun above 75 mph. If you do stick to country roads remember that you'll only have about a 125 mile range tops, so maybe throw in an msr fuel bottle into your pack for emergencies. I don't have any mounting suggestions for the GPS.

This works well for charging. I drilled and tapped two holes in the handlebar clamp to mount but for the ride home just put it in a tankbag or use double sided tape. I have the Nelson Rigg tank back it works great on the Hyper. I also use a Motocentric tail bag.

Thanks for all the responses.

I ordered the BurnsMoto power adapter.

I really like the Axio bag, but they seem out of stock. Anyone know of a place that carries/has them available?

I'm flying in to pick up the bike on the 20th, and have to hit the road right away, so I need a simple/sure solution for the GPS mount, because I won't have time to do a custom mod.

Cool! I'll have to do that once I get back and have more time and tools.
