Like others, I want to ride with no arm rests without making it a project. I saw Bucks thread on the modification and went for it (http://www.k1600forum.com/forum/bmw-k1600-general-discussions/46281-modified-arm-rest.html). I'm more than satisfied. First and most important - the finished modification looks great and is very functional. Secondly - Buck was simply wonderful to deal with. He's a very decent, honest, and honorable individual who jus wants to make our riding experience better. I'll go out of my way one day to ride through his home town to meet and visit with him. Don't think about it - just do it! You'll be so darn glad you did.
