Here is my 2012 950. Bought it in summer of 18 with 3600 miles. Now has over 11k and she never sits longer than 2 weeks. Changed a lot on her. Obviously painted her a metallic graphite, painted exhaust, had slip on cobra and changed to ice cream scoop shorty, velociraptor air cleaner, 2000R Fuel Management System, new mirrors, speakers, phone holder/charger, LED headlamp, passenger floor boards, 10” mini apes, new grips, luggage rack, and bags. The next to be changed out are the seats. Super uncomfortable on long rides. She’s a beast and keeps up with everyone.

With the angle difference between the forks and the bars it gives the impression that the frame collapsed and the front almost broke off completely. However, I can see that you have put a lot of time and effort into your bike, and that is easy to respect!

And is that a streetracker or a cafe in the background? Cannot see too well, but it looks like a rear wheel off an old Kawasaki or Honda? And in the other picture I guess we see the very back of some old Yamaha from between 1980 and 1983?

They were very cool when I first saw them on the 1980 RD350L/C, then on the XJ650 Seca and then more and more. But they grew old pretty quickly.

I like the Sepia tones. All are cool pictures. Never noticed how your bags sit slanted, or is it the picture?

Yeah, they are throw-overs, so they flop around quite a bit.

Yeah I like that one too. My bike is blue. Isn't it interesting how the filter changed the blue to a milk chocolate color?

I like the Sepia tones as well. What would be really cool is a grayscale background with the bike in full color. That would pop. That’s a great backdrop for those pictures!

@Lanthus ; you take some really amazing pictures. The composition in them impresses me every time you pose.

That is a cool idea. Don't mind me, I'm just playing with software toys from the past.
