      Well I got this as a package deal so I had to jump on it. I think I'll sell the board attachments after winter or sooner if it annoys me.

      Finally put on the rack on it was freezing so its not perfect. I believe I have to move the rear rack a little more back, I also have a bike attachment and fairing I have to put on. I might not do that though and sell the ski, bike, and fairing for a votex basket haven't made my mind quite yet.

      I was saving up for an air suspenion and trolling the air suspension forum to get information and learn about bags since I'm clueless about them. Unfortunately yesterday I got laid-off at work so all my Modding is stopping and I'm using my savings for my monthly payments. My other option was koni coilovers with a h&r 24mm rsb. I heard handling is amazing.

      Things have been slow since I lost my job. Today was my birthday so just some updates. Roof rack, bike carrier, ski attachment, and fairing are all sold. I plan to buy a roof rack again some day. I got a nail in my tire so I got that patched. Now for some goodies.

      OEM First Aid Kit I bought this from Steve@DouglasVW, turns out it wasn't the one I wanted so I might return it or sell it.


      OEM Valve Stem Caps


      OEM Euro Door Pocket Umbrella


      Just for fun



      Also ordered another door pocket umbrella for the passenger side.
