my Ninja500r Adventure bike build

Hello all, new to the forum. Just thought I'd share My most recent bike build. I've always had dualsport bikes , but wanted something a little more highway friendly so I could put more miles on, but didn't want something to big to take down rough trails. So I decided hey I have this old ninja 500r sitting around , why not build something out of it.

Chopped down the frame, removed a few unwanted parts, chopped the seat a little, now I'll start to fab some sort of rear rack so I can carry some luggage
