    I cleaned up her rear end with a Blaster-X install and shavin' the beaver tail a wee bit. My state requires license plate lights so I also installed an LED frame. Then I realized I had two holes where the old signals entered the beaver so I put in a couple of spiked shaped bolts to hide 'em a bit.

      Thanks, guys! I'm still trying to find the time to remove the rear wheel to put the 240 on her. And I have the PCS lowering links to drop dat a$$ a bit! Now that I have the other bike done I should have some more free time.

      Finished the luggage rack I built to match the QR backrest I made a few years back. I gave it a powdercoat finish for now. Maybe I'll have it chromed in the future.
      I'd rather die on a motorcycle than live without one.

      That looks great, but how is it powder coated?  It looks like stainless steal.

      It's Eastwood extreme chrome bonded powder. Looks good, very reflective, but doesn't come close to actual chrome.

      I have never heard of it.  It's not bad.
