    Shark sounds great... had to get some standard allen keys for the mounts.
    They look great... Haven't quite figured out the space behind the battery yet.
    Going to add a relay for on/off with the ignition when I run the wires.
    Plenty of volume. Great deal! Thanks Daddy-O.
    It's amazing what $10.00 will get you.

    Hope the boys at the shop don't find anything too major.
    Looking forward to the unveiling.
    Ride safe,

    Once you go black, you can't go back...... to going slower. BD cycles posted these pics already and stated that it was for a NH VTX rider.
