    Hello everyone, I’d like to say how much I enjoy this site and how impressed I am with how helpful everyone is on here.
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    My question is regarding head light and dash ideas. I&#8217;m riding a &#8217;07 SE and wanted to remove the not so powerful headlight and put in its place something that will function and look as cool as it works (maybe a dual setup). Along with that I wanted to do up an aluminum dash that would hold the stock display but also have previsions for a GPS mount, map reading light, power outlet and maybe even hold an electronic tach setup.
    <o:p></o:p>
    On one of the threads on here, someone posted some great pics of a custom design dual lights/dash unit that&#8217;s much what I&#8217;m looking for but I'm not sure which post it was under.
    <o:p></o:p>
    If anyone has some ideas, pics they&#8217;d be will to share or shops/sites I can visit to purchase parts then I&#8217;d really appreciate the help.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Taken many a different paths with lighting, Latest version is working well and has held up to a lot of abuse. Two Baja Designs squadrons and one Onx

    Oh Ya.
    I never thought I did. Some close to me apparently disagree. Originally an anonymous prank, that sticker and its message have now become something more to me. I have a different opinion now about how others perceive my roll and am trying to adjust when able to.

    Samuel Jackson says it best: " I'm trying Jules, I'm trying real hard "

    YMMV PC, hit me up if you want a few of the stickers to mount onto your bad ass'ed stable of thoroughbreds..

    No charge.

    That's Right!! Got that Bad Monkey sticker from an inmate here, I like it.
    The dash is pretty incomplete as it sets now and will be tidied up. Need the temps here in hell to get a bit further away from boiling before I wrap that portion up.

    PFD - that is one nice bike, love it :) I agree with your stickers, I went through a road riding phase of having a WGPCGR sticker on near 200bhp bikes - think spiderman... Would love a "be nice" one :)

    My SE dash has been my bane for two years. I finally "solved it" with a Vespa scooter screen and RAM mounts, and a pair of rigid industries spots with a CJ mount -

    Current set up. Off-road PN60 GPS with SPOT, on road GPS and bluetooth for tunes and calls on my iPhone, stock cluster, and VAPOR. I need to switch to LED up front, but right now have an "ok" flood and spot with the HIDs. Love the LEDs posted earlier.
