Default Blacked out

Here is my 2009 Victory Vegas 8-ball. ALMOST all blacked out. I need to black out the speedometer and figure out what to do with the forks. Recently, I just took the cheese wedges off and I painted them flat black, in addition I removed the reflectors from the lower forks. Anyone have suggestions for the forks? I am thinking either the covers, maybe the contrast cut, or wrapping them with black vinyl until I decided what to do.

In addition to painting the wedges, I drilled out the dimples. I am installing an LED kit this weekend and wanted the LED to shine from behind the weges.

Your rear fender looks like it has more clearance than stock? Did you change the rear shock? If so, what did you use and how do you like it?

I bought the bike used. I believe it is the stock shock. I do have a 200 tire on the rear which is slightly lower profile than the stock 180, this could be creating the larger clearance.

If that's your garage in the background please mess it up a little, it makes me feel bad seeing such neatness.

LOL. I had just finished cleaning my garage as it has become a storage ground for a couple of my buddies bikes. Now I have 3 Victories, a Harley, and a Honda sitting in my garage.
