Well, of course. My luck I take delivery on a typical New England Spring day with plenty of rain so no riding just yet. Here's some quick pictures. Maybe you guys can help decipher what's stock and whats not.

Like I said, it's a 2006 1100 Silverado, 10k miles on the clock. It is the two tone sand and liquid silver color.

Still has the Silverado OEM windshield, studded seats, studded passenger backrest and studded bags

List of add accessories that I can tell. (Maybe you could help add or take some off)

Chrome luggage rack
Star branded passenger floorboards
Kuryakyn driver floorboards
Chrome brake pedal
Show Chrome grips
Crash bar (not sure of the brand)
Light bar (Yamaha accessories?)
Chrome V-Star visors over the headlight, light bar spots lights, front turn signals and rear turn signals.
Fork mounted studded tool bag (trying to find a better way to mount)
Chrome Highway Hawk horn cover
Chrome Highway Hawk Taillight cover
Chrome Side Covers (left and right) i.e. where the toolkit is and on the other side (Stock or no?)
Chrome Yamaha Accessories fender rail (not entirely sure how I feel about it yet. May remove or let it grow on me)
Leather tank bib (want to replace this with a studded tuxedo with a pocket for a phone or wallet)





Small list of things I want:
Chrome neck cover
Chrome shift peg covers
Chrome pegs for the crash bar
Oil Filter relocation
Cobra lo-boys exhaust
Hypercharger

THEN I should be done

Last picture is what I traded in:
2004 Suzuki Volusia 800 cc with 16k miles.


It was shaft driven as well, but it was also liquid cooled, which I will miss.
It was carbureted but it didn't have a fuel petcock so I'll need to get used to turning my fuel on.
Also, it had an LCD Fuel Gauge built into the speedo, so I'll have to start doing some math. I estimated I'll be able to go roughly 200 miles (or 320 km for you guys who use the RIGHT way) before needing to fill up. Is that right?
It most certainly wasn't a screaming demon, lol.
My father also rides a 2002 1600cc Road Star and before that he had a 1977 Triumph Bonneville that I learned to ride on.

Thanks for having me!

Welcome to the forum Nick. This is a great place we have here and I'm gonna go with your speedo being stock. Welcome to the forum and to the good times that will follow. Take care and keep the rubber side down.

Welcome to the nut house, Nick. I usually go on reserve between 135 and 140, and about another 40 on reserve. "About" because I've fortunately never found out exactly. :)

I'm thinking the mirrors look OEM (I'm keeping away from "stock", we just went through that on another thread and I don't want to get Dan all riled up again :D).

And Springer, make sure you keep your hands out of your pockets while you're in the corner.:eek:

Oh wow... that picture is exactly what I needed to open while sitting at my desk at work. I now need to explain that to my coworker, haha.

If you access the forum at work, as many of us do :rolleyes:, you will eventually have to explain to a coworker why you're laughing uncontrollably with tears running down your face.:D This is speaking from experience. Although at this point my assistant doesn't even question it any more.

And he should know...look at his vacation pix. A real son of a beach, eh? (He thought it was a motocross event....:D:D:D)




Yeah, yeah, I know. Now I have to go stand in a corner....
Wow, I thought I told my wife to take those pictures off the web! How am I ever going to forget those days
