    Steve, you're rubbing off on me!
    I just stopped by my favorite dealer today (hello, my good buddies at Yamaha of Warren!!!), and stocked up on bling today.
    Hubby got fender tips all around for his 1300, and I got handlebar bling: Chrome master cylinder reservoir cover (not just the lid, but the full Kuryakyn cover), chrome levers, chrome switch housings (Show Chrome), and my rear fender solo rack. I also got some spacers to remove the backrest arms.
    Happy days!!! fender tips and levers are here, and the rest should arrive shortly. Can't wait!!!!

    And I am in the process of de-chroming my 1300.

    To each their own.

    I cannot, nor will not take blame for your recent chrome addiction. I truly believe that IF a person IS going to chrome out their bike, they have to take full responsibility for it themselves....................

    For sure take plenty of pics for us when it's ON!!!!!!!!! (sunglasses ready).

    VTC is now an official chrome polish addict

    Glad to hear you got some goodies, will you have enough time to get it all put on before you hit the road?

    Ata girl VTC! Glad your bling-o-meter is still at high! Was starting to worry that you were considering the black out route...

    Well both do go well with pink. Black just doesn't have that sparkle us girls like!

    Well, the chromie levers didn't quite fit. I have a feeling the levers in the box were not labeled with the proper Kuryakyn part number (Kury's fault, not the dealer's). Another trip to see "my guys". Thanks, Steve, for backing me on that!

    Also, Butterfly is officially "de-bitched" (OK, maybe not when the driver's in a pissy-a$$ mood). Passenger backrest and seat is totally off now and it is ready for the solo rack to arrive any day.

    I fiddled around with the windshield tilt and license plate laydown, but nothing I like yet. Still have time to muse around the garage for proper solutions until spring arrives.

    Today sure helped ease the pain of PMS.

    Most new pieces have arrived!
    I may get the handlebars, Iso grips, switch housings and master cylinder cover on tomorrow. I also made another cool little personalized touch to my grips. To be disclosed later...
    Still waiting on my correct chromie levers. That indeed was Kury's mislabled packaging. Probably next week. And yes, pics will follow.

    Once I do new mirrors (still haven't found the "just right" look yet) and license tilt, she will be lookin' sweet to me. The hunt's still on! I found the flamed Kury goodies by accident, but they rate really high on my bling-o-meter! Pending funds availability. Just found out that we didn't qualify for the new home tax credit. That's $8000 out the window. Pisses me off to no end because it was a totally valid sale, but it was from a relative. grrrrr!
    So more homebrewed mods from me...
    We have one town around here that is pretty tough on nitpicking laws like plates, so I won't be doing a total laydown - just a tip back. And maybe a nice new backing plate.
    I received a new side cover to remove the jello mold! So there's another to-do..

    An '06 Dyna cowbell. I hate imitating HD, but I think it will blend in once the '10 1300's are released.
