Those bars look nice!

How satisfied are you with that fairing? Trying to talk myself into buying that fairing and those bags...

i like it. but they were on the bike when i bought it. imo, the fairing and bags make the bike. i rode it a couple of days with it off, and i definitely would rather have it on.

Does your fairing have the sound system?

i bought a stop-turn-tail control module. it will run those two LED bag lights, and they are plenty bright. put the 1300 tail light on the fender too.

polishing the differential housing on mine improved look at the rear but i think doing just the nose cone would have worked. i never liked any of the chrome covers that are offered so i polished the whole unit this winter. now well see how long it hold the shine
