My main squeeze is a 2004 Concours. Up front is a Cee Bailey Headlight Guard. I've got Race Tech and Sonic Spring goodies inside the forks, and a KB Fork Brace on the outside. My wife bought the back rest from Kawasaki, but sometimes it gets removed and replaced by a custom rear shelf I built for myself at work when my boss wanted to give me a bonus but didn't have any cash handy. I also made a custom COG nameplate to fill the hole in my left side cover. My bell from skewterdewd lives behind the side cover. Under the seat is where I hide my extra fuse block for powering accessories like a 12VDC plug adapter, and my handlebars are filled with lead fishing sinkers and epoxy and covered with super squishy jet ski grips to dampen vibration. I put an APE manual cam chain tensioner in and tuned the engine to the nines to minimize the dreaded "Connie Buzz", and to bottom everything off I put some Avon tyres on it to give me all the grip I can legally use.
That's my bike.

Later,

Charlie

'08 Vulcan 900LT. Burgundy and black. Love the two-tone paint. Haven't done any of the three Big 3 mods, but I do enjoy the comfort of the Mustang wide touring seat. I also have 13" apes (Thanks Bill!), chrome fender rail on the front fender, ISO grips w/ throttle boss, chrome resevoir cover, zombie highway pegs, chrome skull license plate frame, and OEM crash bars.

I need a cool name for my bike. I'm just not clever enough to think of one.

Thanks, Mike. I do like to turn wrenches. Too bad my photography skills aren't equal to my wrenching.



Later,

Charlie

Is there a bike in there somewhere? My eyes are watering from trying to look at the blurry picture.

Yes. If you look closely at the upper left corner, you can see the turn signals, seat and some blue gas tank hidden under parts and other stuff.

Woohoo! Got my Saddlemen Desperado Fork Bag on the bike tonight! The 3M protective film went on fairly well and should keep the bag from scuffing the paint on the fender







I love it!

Nice addition, Mike! Does the lock guarantee they steel the whole bag?

Later,

Geez. . . all I've got is a set of Kuryakyn ISO grips, a Stilleto windshield, some case guard/crash bars, and a tour bag setting on a homemade shelf rack on the back of the sissy bar on my Eliminator. . .

I feel like such an underachiever. . .

I ride an Eliminator. What you got?
