Out on a trial run after an engine remove/replace in preparation for my "bucket list" cross the continent ride. Massachusets to Montreal to Vancouver BC, (Trans-Canada) to Washington and return via USA route. 7,500 miles with one oil change and no surprises. Boy was she dirty at the end of it all. What a great ride. I do like living in a tent (when it's not raining a lot).

  Lovely black cherry EV color...wish I could find that paint code somewhere!

Had a blue Cali for a while...but sold it after a short period, as the barn door had too much buffeting for my taste, and some friends wanted to buy.  For the short time I had it I'd ride it w/o the fairing mostly.  Very nice bike...quite agricultural in nature...but fun for cruising.

I acquired a 2002 Stone a few months ago.  It has the one piece seat.  I would like to switch it out for a solo or "front" seat only.  The ones I am finding from similar model California's are showing they won't fit my Stone.  I know there were some differences in ECU location which affected seat fitment, but can an EV seat be made to fit without major modification?  Also it is very difficult to get the seat latched back after removal.  Any adjustments or trick to make it fit better?  I will post a picture of the bike later on tonight.  Thanks!

well since the circle has been widened...

I've had this bike 8 years I'm pretty happy with it. last 18 months: new Ikon front and rear, new u-joint carrier bearing. New plugs and wires. Every fluid/valve adjustment/lubed spline as you'd expect. Good for another 22 years...

I REALLY like that seat!!  Who made it? Most taller cali seats look kinda just "built on" to my eye. That really almost looks like a flat standard bike seat. I like! 

Here is my bike. 02 stone metal. 12k miles on it.

Thanks, but first, your Stone is beautiful. Arguably the most unique presentation of the Cali 1100.

It's a Rich Maund seat. Wish I knew the conversation that resulted in this design. Absolutely love the seat, and so does my girlfriend. Clean. Came with the bike all those years ago.
