    Congatulations everyone on the new bikes, must be a good year for the dealer. Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas from your neighbor on the other side of the boarder. Hope to see you all in 2018 at D2D.
    Ride safe,
    Rick

    Went to the shop today to peel some stickies and to check on the new bikes. It seems there was a up date on the software for the big screen.

    Figured I should join the fun and jump on the bandwagon now that my bike finally made it home. Hacky and I are going to be twins this year!

    Congrats to everyone that picked up new bikes this year!

    Nice Bike! I know where you can get a new Rallye Jacket cheap.......

    A birdie told me that Bigger Bird found a new seat cover. Do we know the new owner?

    BiggerBird sold??
    News to me.
    I just happen to have a few goodies on hand that would fit that bike.

    In the meantime DapMan has been busy in the lab.

    Well done Mike.
    Gotta love the MotoSport look.
    If I ever build a R100 RS it will mimic the 1978.

    And I know someone who has an RS upper fairing in great shape. Did Dapman paint those stripes or are they decals ? Really looks nice.

    He is the “wizard”
    Let your imagination run wild.
    My only thought would be this.
    On your TriBlack GS you would need to first remove the stock graphics which have been clear coated.
    Dap and I originally were going to wrap the sides of my tank but we could not match the same white that was on the beak and tank panel. Went with paint and nailed the color perfectly.
    Will post final pics once I get the parts installed.
    I am sure between the two of you a cool color combo could be created. The size and shape of the artwork is already done. Call him and don’t forget to add my 15% . Creativity is not cheap!

    Might be hard to pull off long distance given that I am utterly devoid of any artistic talent.
