I am currently watching the snow pile up outside but heading back into the garage as soon as I post this!! I have spent countless hours on this site over the last few weeks getting tips and info - thanks to all who have posted such!!

My bike was bone stock last fall. Over the last 4-6 weeks I have accumulated a plethora of items that I'm fixing to mount over the next couple weekends

Cobra Tri-Ovals (user BNeal)
Thunder BAK (user vulchrome)
Dynojet PCV
Rockford Fosgate 300x4
Commander II rear tire (new front last fall)
Skootwerks risers
Custom CNC'd bar clamp
Dash is removed and at a local gunsmith for hydrodipping (will be blue carbon fiber)
1/5 throttle mod
Wrapping the pipes
I have 1 or 2 other projects in mind on her, too!!

I SOOO can't wait for riding season - it's been a LONG, COLD winter!! The dash is the item setting the pace as I won't have it for two weeks yet!! UGH!!

We don't have that problem here Cannonballs! I really, really hate being cold so when I start hesitating to ride because of the temperature I put the bike away for about 5 months of down time here! Usually we will get a nice day in the high 40s or around 50 here or there in the winter to take the bike for a quick ride but this winter has just been brutal and there was just too much sand and salt on the roads for my liking.

The last ride I took was in late Oct when it started to snow,late march now and expecting another 3-5 inches tonite and tomorrow on top of the 197 inches we have already.All the banks around the driveway are 12 feet high(as high as I can get them with the bucket loader)All 3 bikes have been gone thur,the Vulcan got all its maintenance,new tires and the front fork wind guards installed.The one R6 got its fairings repainted,race tail installed,steering shock,new caliper and stainless lines getting ready for track days.Then I thought i would get another R6 for the street and keep the other for the track,new tires on that one but thats all it needed,then in the middle of all that I thought I don't need two R6,s so I put all the signals back on the track R6and put the seats back on and tail piece,got some carbon fiber for it,front fender,chain guard,frame inserts and back fender.Now all 3 sit in the garage,start all 3 of them up and sit back and forth between them,doing burnouts on the garage floor and making sure the clutches all work,musta put a 100 miles on them in the shop.If it clears even a little this week,the Vulcans going out....
