If you could do some mods to my bike, what would you do?

I know it is an open question but I am curious about the feed back. Mind you, I don't have a bottomless pit of money, but I am thinking about the possibility of adding something, I just don't really know what I want at this point. I have some ideas, but thought I would ask here first, rather than just say it, to see what comes up. So .... I'm just curious as to what you guys and gal might do. ;)

Here are a few pics. BTW-I don't use the saddle bags unless I am on a road trip and need them. The tail lights get in the way.

Kevin,

#1 - Thanks!
#2 - I'm open to suggestions. 8)

BTW-I have admired what you have done to your bike for some time. One thing I am seriously considering is the addition of lights (both running and turn signals) on the front.

If I were to buy you a B-day gift for your bike, I would get you a radiator cover and a neck cover. :D

If your going for looks maybe chrome the wheels or chrome tree covers.

Otherwise you might like fork lowers to help block wind, a gps, or get a larger T-Bag or Kuryakyn travel bag. Then you can ditch those saddlebags.

I see a red bike and i want to paint it black....

J/K

it really depends on what you use your bike for, I do alot of day/weekend trips so i set mine up as a bagger and hwy travel (satlite radio, cup holder,drivers back rest)

if you use it for a go to work bike or just to tool around, strip it down.

I guess to me, it depends upon what direction you want your bike to go.

Like my bike I went for the Bagger look. and it is set up for the long haul, I think I accomplished that look, comfort and function I was after.

But if you want a sporter look, there are totally different things you should buy to get that look.

Good Luck,,

6* trees and a radiator cover. Just say NO to tank trim. always room for more bling. Just ask Kevin. I am told that that thing will hurt your eyes in the sunlight.

Peace

Lose the windshield. Chrome parts, not chrome covers. And most of all, do what you want!

Ditto on the radiator cover, go with a chrome one or sumthin like a chin fairing. Also agree with the chrome trees.


Say not only NO, but HELL NO to tank trim. Only trim on a bike should be sitting on the passenger pad:thumbup:

Been wondering the same thing my damn self. I'm thinking of taking the decals off the tank and painting everything army green, painting a couple of white stars on the tank. Might leave the wheels black, what do ya think?:smile: sb

I'm thinking a rear fender more in line with the front fender. Looks kinda mismatched. Then again if you get rid of the bags it might work better as is.
