    After shoveling the snow, blowing the snow and driving through the snow for 104 miles each day, I have some plans.
    1. Change the stock light to a LED Tombstone
    2. Wire and mount LED lights for the License Plate
    3. Relocate the turnsignals.
    4. Wire in a super bright extra brake light on the passenger's back rest. Thinking about hiding it behind an emblem so that the light reflects off the chrome on the back rest.
    5. Install an ORK.
    6. Install Front crash bars.
    7. Replace stock horn with a pair of louder ones.
    8. Buy and install driving lights.

    I should have that done by May!

    The main mod I've got planned for this winter is to change the odometer by several thousand miles. Hopefully we have a very light rainy season so I can do that. :-)
    I'm working on that "mod" too.....every day I'm home.

    Another very cool, thing about the Garmin Zumo 550

    What kind of License plate is this?

    Where did you get the chrome license plate?

    Also, where is a good place to get solo seats?

    That is a Baron's "Stealth" license plate kit. I put it on so I could rid of all that clutter on the back. I believe I got mine from Shane at SS Custom Cycle.

    When it comes to most anything for my bike, I go to Tim B at Metric Magic first, then to Shane at SS Custom Cycle next. Both guys are the absolute TOP in knowledge and customer service. I'd check with them for the seat..

    metric-magic.com/ (Tim's inventory changes a lot so it's usually best to call him to see what he's got.

    Funds are tight, so I'll probably focus on clean-up. Bike spent 3,500 miles living in Miami, so some refinishing needs to be done. I'm thinking rattlecan black. Also going to install that eBay lowering kit on the back, gut the stock exhaust and do some routine maintenance. Also planning a dual-intake setup, probably with mushroom filters and various items from Home Depot. Sad, I know, but hey, if you're gonna get hammered, Hamms works just as well as Dom Perignon. Call this the experimental stage... I can always upgrade down the road.

    Installing Barons ORK with the PC Racing Oil Filter. Ricor Intiminators for my forks. New custom driveshaft cover from ADchrome. Krank Vent. Gremlin Bell. Flush mounting some stainless buttons on my dash to control my led kit and HID kit.

    I've been over at the Delphi forums for awhile and figured I'd start an account over here and double my fun.

    Make sure you get someone who cares about you to install that bell...they don;t work as well if you install it yourself...

    kzdar37 My kids gave the Bell for Christmas. I installed the Bell myself. The location it's installed in the kids couldn't have installed it for me. According to the Legend The Bell carries twice the power when it is purchased as a gift. It doesn't mention the installation part. I did hang the bell at the lowest point I could.

    I actually have two on my bike, one that I got from the friend ring at the Roadstar forum, and one that my wife got for me. She put them both on for me...

    Not to hijack the thread, did you trade your spoke rims for the cast wheels you have now? I've been thinking about doing that myself, or getting my rims sealed so I can run tubeless tires. I've tried a couple times to contact Wheel Works out in California, but so far have not received a reply. I may try to call, but this does not instill a lot of confidence...

    kzdar37, I sold my spokes on ebay and bought the chrome wheels from Cycle Image. It took about a month to get them. Pretty good quality. You have to install your own bearings.
