So I have added some more mods most of which I really like, some more than others, and some not so much.  First I decided I wanted to try a luggage rack and a riders seat back.  The luggage rack I am enjoying much, but the seat back forced me to sit too far forward and really made my legs uncomfortable.  I have since taken it off.

Then I got my Kuryakyn grips, helmet locks, and throttle boss.  I appreciate them all 'specially the throttle assist do hickey.  The fringed lever covers are purely cosmetic Wink

The last mod (I hesitate to even call it that) is just some chrome trim around the tank.  To be honest I'm still not sure how much I like it, but it will stay for now.

The only thing I have left on my wishlist is forward controls and maybe, just maybe, an engine guard.

Looks nice. I really like the blue. When I did my rider back rest I had to do some southern engineering to move it back. Good job on the mods.

Your bike really coming along nicely. I think a rider backrest can make such a huge difference to comfort, could you not adjust or modify it slightly to get it where you would prefer?

Couldn't do without mine Slej, makes so much difference, especially if you have a glass back like I do. I've got the same chrome trim on my tank - I think it looks great on yours too
