Well, as far as the suction cups go, I don't think they are for me. I wanted mine to be very quick and easy. I know the seat will never move with the bracket on. Although the cups might be a little easier on the paint...I'm not sure.
I'm not putting you guys down that used the suction cups, I've just been thinking about it, and decided I'm good without them. Actually, I think it is very cool that people on here post their ideas and what works for them. Pretty good group of nice folks on here.
Headed out to Cassoday KS tomorrow morning for the biggest little bike rally in my area. The local population is about 200 people, but on the first Sunday of the month, up to 5000 bikers.
