that's OK. there probably wasn't enough room on the roads for both of our 950s anyway
Just wish I could have waited till after we took en out and exploded a few brains on the streets of Austin haha

Best aftermarket pipes for the road star? I had V&H 2 into 2 on my 950 (RIP) and loved em, but am willing to branch out if the sound, and price, is right.

I like the look of them, and the powershots, hell I like the look of most of em!!:D
Wish I could say I was back on the road, but it will be a bit for this hand to heal:mad:, but I couldn't pass up the deal on this road star, the previous owner has taken very good care of her! That and she already has most of what I would want to accessorize.

Hi Kel. Glad to hear you're healing and you've already gotten a replacement - haha, couldn't resist right? I think we heal faster when we have something tangible to look forward to.

Make sure that hand heal properly before you start going back out. Hands are delicate things, take care of them and they'll take care of you.

Can't wait for the pics!

Okay ladies and gents. Planned upgrades are as follows:

street performance grips (I think that is the brand of them, I'm a little doped on pain meds right now)
Adding passenger floor boards from star
the same xxx big air kit I had on my 950
Vance and Hines powershots with jet kit
Chrome rimmed front wheel.

I will of course be taking before and after pics.

I do want a custom paint scheme, but will wait on that for a bit as I think on how I want it.


This is the for sale pic I pulled off the ad of my new baby

i missed this thread update before. looks good! how do you like it compared to the 950?
Obviously it's night and day for power, comfort, and reliability :D:D

Looks good though. V&H long shots strait pipes are very nice, but you might also be interested in bassani true duals for $400~ or freedom duals for $700. if you have big bags, they're really the way to go IMO.
