An LT right? Looks great, imo. There are pics on here somewhere. Do a search.

Seems to handle better too.

Looks great, handles much better. Added a Fort Worth Rack to provide cargo space and a cleaner, more finished, look.

Some like the looks with it removed some don't. Some say it handles better without it some don't. I couldn't tell a difference in handling either way, so mine is still on, plus I ride two up. She has neck and back problems and without it, she'd never ride. JM2CW.
