    BN.............You have one kicken bike:clap :deal I would love to see more of the front headlight and blinker set up........

    For the tank, I sanded it lightly, cleaned it with a paint and wax remover, and then used Duplicolor bedliner paint.......It is sticking pretty good, but will need to touch up if I go down:lol3 :lol3

    And a pic of a DRZ..................just to stay on subject:lol3 :lol3

    8" Baja Designs halogen racelight. A couple pieces of flat iron and a drill was all it took! Thanks for the comment!

    OK, whatever you have done to this bike it looks awesome!
    Not sure if it's the black/white paint combined with the black wheels and beefy tars but it comes together for an awesome look. Good job, I will save these pics as what I would want one to look like.

    ps, please list your modifications unless you have somewhere else that I can be referred.

    Here's my '05. After 20 years of riding, I'm loving this bike more than all the rest.

    In "S" mode, on my commute to work, taking a few snowmobile/ATV trails on the way.

    [​IMG]


    In SM mode, late fall coffee break.

    [​IMG]


    Fall commute home on the ATV trails. With the weather out there now, I should swap back the S wheels and do some snow riding!
