looks good, had to trim in a few spots. I wish it would have been warmer outside, it may have made the graphics a little more pliable.

Pulled her out of storage after a long winter in the Russian Far East, drained off the carb, lubed the chain, changed the air filter and fired her up... battery held charge all winter!!!! Will be taking her out to blow off the cobwebs today :thumbsup: Now anxiously awaiting sticker kit and new plastics from the states to get her all spick'n'span for the new season...

washed and waxed for the ride on friday. i waxed it to see if the mud would come off easier later on. I also sprayed the underside of the fenders with jigaloo. I'm hoping the dirt and mud will not stick as much and just kind of wash off with a hose later. i guess we'll see.
