Did yours come stock with the rear drop bars? Seems like ours is the only '05 speedster I've seen with the bullhorn handlebars.

Our dealer gave us a choice. We tried both and my FIRST MATE (she doesn't like the term "stoker", LOL) liked the drop bars better. We've only done one ride so far, and itching for the weekend to get here!!!!

Co-Mo gives option of drop bars (in 3 widths) or bullhorns for "stoker". Dealer should have informed U-2 of that fact! However, bars are relatively cheap and you can pop on a set of drops.
If Ms. Zonker does not like the word "stoker" you can also refer to her as "rear-admiral" . . . and yes, that outranks the "captain" up front!
Enjoy your new Co-Mo . . . rides even better than it looks . . . We've put 56,000 miles on a custom Co-Mo. Quality pays off in the long run!

Pedal on TWOgether!
