I've posted a couple of thread here asking for help with graphics (http://www.thumperta...2788&highlight=), and help with a skid plate (http://www.thumperta...5225&highlight=).

Well, my first ride of the year is this weekend, and I got the bike done yesterday. The number plates came out a little goofy looking, but other than that, I love it.

Thought I'd post a few pics.

The bike was all stock, and pretty virgin when I got it. I changed the bars, added hand guards, radiator guards, skid plate, and added some graphics.

$5 says the chain measures right by the book just the way it is.
