Well, it's been over a year with my new 900 now and I figured I'd share something with y'all.

When I first bought the bike I didn't even ride it home. I had a friend ride it home because I wanted to learn in a little more relaxed environment. I followed him in my car, and we made one quick stop on the way at a gas station and I snapped this pic of the bike;



Well several months later my wife and I were out riding and I stopped by the same gas station, and snapped THIS one;

Er.. um.. nevermind I can't find that picture. But it's somewhere! Picture the same bike but with a mustang seat and a few little trinkets.

Or.. here;



There it is on our honeymoon, in Eureka Springs.

And then I snapped THIS one just the other day at that SAME spot;



*sniff* they grow up so fast!

Nice to see how far you have come with your bike. :) what type of saddle bags are on your bike in the last picture?

Yes, sigh, they do grow up so quickly, right before our very eyes. I have raised several such children over the years. Then, when they get "all growed-up," we tend to say goodbye to them, send them on their way, and after a tear or two, we adopt another infant to raise up.

I'd say that that's the final product, but I suspect that is not so. There will always be something or another to add and improve its performance, appearance or comfort. Once a parent, always a parent, ya know.

Neat story John. Didn't know you were a vet so thanks for your service.

Nice "cut." :)
Thank you sir but I am not a vet. The Navy patch says "Navy Brother" on it and is worn in honor of my little brother who is currently serving in the USN. I am in the patriot guard, but you don't have to be a vet to be a member. Many of the folks I ride with are vets and they've encouraged me to join and I've done several PGR rides with them.

Oh, and the bags are Mutazu HL bags. The trunk is a Harley Tour Pak.

From April of this year my V2K has went from

It is amazing how they will eventually turn out, and a lot of times different than what we originally planned.
