Talking FNG Here

Read the forums for years, decided to join since i have done some upgrades to my bike.
Love the 1300 vstar. First one i had was the 2007 cruiser. Put 65k mi then decided to upgrade to the 2015 Deluxe.
Did a nice MOD to it over the past couple months.
Swapped the front speakers out with marine grade polk audio 300 W speakers. Added a 600W amp kenwood KAC-M3004 amp, then made a rear bracket to attach to the backrest support bar. Added 8" Pyle Wakeboard speakers 300W.
Passfilt HI's tp the front, LO's to the rear. Sounds awsome. Was concerned with the voltage so i swapped the halogen headlight with a 3000 lumens fanless LED bulb kit. Saved 25-30 watts i figured. Also swapped the Brakelight bulb with a led. Added a voltage gage and shows 14.1 - 14-4 volts idle with music playing. So charging system is doing great.
Anyway,

greetings all.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. The 1300 is a great ride. Sounds like you've got your tunes all set up.

I agree with Les, great intro except for one small item, NO PICS! I came to the end of your intro fully anticipating a picture of your ride, but no dice! Seriously though after all the work youve done on it, wed all love to see some pics. Glad you joined us, were a likable bunch!
