Default who has shaved down the stock light bracket?

I still can't decide which way to go as far as tail lights...Considering shaving down the stock plastic thingy and finding lights I like...Has anyone done this? or is there a better way? I've seen the tomahawk thing but it looks like the lights go underneath on the bottom...I want off to the side...

I didn't really trim the sides, but I did something different.

That's cool...I'm going side mount with the plate though...and I'm not 100% sold on the strip...I'm leaning towards mini bullets...but then again, I flip flop in this for some reason!

the Sissy bar is available at hotvic.com. here's a full view of my bike as she sits now.

I think it would look weird without it now.

Is that the MBW? I want to keep my plate on the back so I'm looking to do something like this.
