What kind of bike do you have?

We've got threads to introduce ourselves... this is the thread to introduce your bike.

Mine is a 2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 LT. She is ebony and galaxy silver and has the following accessories added:

MC Enterprises Engine Guard
Custom World Light Bar
OEM Luggage Rack
OEM Gel Seat
OEM Passenger Floorboards
Auburn Leather Windshield Bag
Kuryakyn ISO-Grips
Kuryakyn ISO Throttle Boss
Kuryakyn ISO Toe Shifter Cover
Kuryakyn ISO Heel Shifter Cover
Kuryakyn ISO Brake Pedal Cover
Kuryakyn ISO Dually Highway Pegs
Big Bike V-Twin Horn Cover
Big Bike Chrome Reservoir Cover
Big Bike Free Spirit Master Cylinder Cover
Big Bike Free Spirit Air Cleaner Cover
Big Bike Regulator Cover
PH Customs Studded Tank Bib with Pocket
Memphis Shades Clear Lowers
Webslinger Custom Speedometer Cover

I have a Baron's tachometer and a Saddlemens Desperado studded fork bag on the way.

On my wish list is the following:

Protec Driver's Backrest
Barons Fork Bullet Covers
Powerlet Handlebar Outlet
Kisan Signal Cancelling Device
Powerlet Garmin PowerMount
Flash2Pass Garage Door Opener
Big Bike Front Caliper Cover
Custom Dynamics Red Rear Turn Signal Lenses

And, if I ever strike it rich, I'm getting some Corbin Beetlebags

You can see pics of her at www.southernreign.us/Vulcan.htm

2003 1500 Kawi Mean Streak
2002 Suzuki DRZ400

although, the Meanie is currently out of commission and will probably be replaced with a V2K next year, better for touring with.
