At first look I thought I was looking at a Cafe racer!
Never realised how good they look with all the 'stuff' removed.
Love the driving light setup and yeah the black fork covers really do the trick!
Try looking at the pic the way I did.
It's all in the mind.

Then got home and added the black Kuryakyn Fork covers (uppers and lowers). not a fan of the seam, but they definitely work for the look I am going for. Also reinstalled the front fender, and realized I was REALLY GOOD at the math calculations on changing the angle of the wheel chock rocker. Came within 1/2" of the fender, but its also easier to get in and out, but still totally secure. For anyone who has one of these standard wheel chocks (Mine is the Extrememaxx from amazon), drill your hole 1" forward and 1" down. Sent the highway bars and saddlebag guards to the powdercoaters to be media blasted and done.

Worked a few hours on soldering the new lighting strips to get them ready for install in the next week. Hoping to have it on the road by next weekend.
That thing looks great all blacked out! Makes it look more "BAD ASS"!

@visionjohnny that is a custom built lift table. I designed it in Autocad, and got a guy who builds snowmobile lifts fabricate it all up.

Lifts the bike to 34.5" when fully extended, using a Porter Cable Variable Speed drill (the battery powered drill didn't have enough juice o lift it once the beast was on it). It was my xmas present to myself

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Thanks, I have plans to get a steel/diamond plate deck made up over the summer to make it smaller/shorter when collapsed.

Got out yesterday. Took the bike out to my sister in laws to help install some fence posts. It ended up getting up to 63* yesterday. It was a glorious day for a ride and it was wonderful to get back out on the bike.
