Well I did it

Hi all
I am calling this my mid life crisis buy. I am hoping to pick her up Saturday. I have not owned a bike since 2004 when i got my first 636 in silver. I am now trying to find the best places to find upgrades and matching jacket and helmet.

Thanks for the help

I have to say, I'm damn jealous. Congratulations on your moment of mid-life mental incapacitation!

I agree, those rear clusters are horrific. That, and the howitzer of an end can!

Nice choice. If I was to upgrade, I'd go for that colour scheme...

A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates

Congratulations and welcome.

Very nice looking bike.

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Beautiful bike. I wish I had gotten white myself.
Check out the motodynamic integrated tail light. It's LED, has sequential turn signals, and looks great. As far as a fender eliminator, I just put a Bolt through a hole where fender was mounted and put the tag on there lol

I heard bad things about tst so I haven't pulled the trigger. You have first hand experience with their stuff?
