Nice pics and ride.
Did that start out as a white and silver or is that all custom paint?
I like your two tone pattern.

My 2011 bike was black when I bought it. It is a custom paint job. The colors are White with a slight tint of green, and the green is Willow Green; I actually took the Willow Green from Indian Motorcycles. I bought their 1 ounce bottle for $58 and had my Body shop match it. Did you notice the front fender? That too is the original fender with some custom metal work to make it look retro. Thanks for the compliments.

I have to admit I noticed the flare but didn't realize what I was looking at. Mine is more of a tire hugger no flare. Looks good and I like the painted engine spoiler.

Just saw my first Arlen, Cory Ness XC today , would love to have that diamond cut engine.
Nice ride Okie !

Default Those lights!

Dear VRat, please let me know the details about your highway lights. Great that you have them attached to the upper of your bar. Do you have a toggle switch, or push button? I have been looking for a good idea for highway lights and looks like you have it. Please fill us in on the details from start to finish. Thanks a lot, and beautiful bike!!! Just rode down here in Oklahoma today, 19 Dec 10. Clear skies and 57 degrees.

The (cheap) lights I purchased come with a lighted toggle switch which fits into the dash with minor modification. Under the upper bars are some flat mounting pads that I drilled and tapped. On the left side of the tank there is a yellow and black pair of wires that are for fog lights which I used for my power. The connection is switched which prevents me from leaving them on and I have the switch to turn them off if I want. Pretty straight forward, you have to pull the tank back to get to the power connection.

That's great info about the connector, VRat. Thanks for sharing it.

I, too, will be adding aux lights to my 2011 XC and it's great to know there's already a circuit to do so. I'm gonna have to take a closer look at my wiring diagram to see where the power is coming from. I'm assumming from the low-beam circuit of the head light but just want to verify.
