Haven't really posted up here much at all, but I've been a member for a little bit looking around and reading up on stuff. I figured I'd chime in since I actually got some good pics of the bike. Here ya go:

They're 1280x960, so I'm posting links:

Thanks


I'm about 5'8"... I was on my toes when I first got the bike, but now I can sit flat-footed with my knees at a pretty decent angle. It's mostly for looks, but it really helped out at the strip.

What HID kit is that? How well does it show you the road ahead at night?

it's a Phillips HID kit with some off brand bulbs. I had a 9006 kit in there originally which looked good, but it wasn't the best for lighting up the road, so I ordered another pair from eBay. This time I got an H7 and an H4 combination, and it works very well. I can see 10 times better than what I did with the stock bulbs.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm trying to go for the clean look. I'm probably done with the cosmetic part, aside from some front turn signals and maybe some new mirrors.

Anyone know of any slimmer mirrors besides Pigspotters?

It helped a lot. I wanted it mostly for looks, but I can launch the bike at a good couple/few thousand rpms higher than I used to be able to. I can almost just on the throttle anywhere in first and it won't stand up on me.
