This is not really a project bike, but I picked up a new-to-me bike in October 2011 and I am in the process of getting it set up the way I like it. I spent the winter picking up some new parts and finally got them put on over the past couple weeks. Today I had an opportunity to take some photos as I had to clean the bike due to getting caught in the rain yesterday evening. Nothing extreme but not bad considering I was able to pick all of these parts up for under $180.00. New parts include:
> No-cut frame sliders
> JPR adjustable short levers
> SportTech smoked double bubble windscreen
> GYTR R1 Tank Pad
> Vortex swingarm spools (installed the week I got the bike).

Stuff that came with the bike:
> Scorpio 2 way alarm system
> Corbin seat, I always wanted a Corbin but was always too cheap to buy one. But it's worth every penny, makes long rides much more comfortable.

Possible future additions:
> Flush mounted front turn signals, this would really make the front of the bike look a lot cleaner but I don't want to mess up my stock flash rate for the blinkers.
> Integrate the rear turn signals into the rear brake light and ditch that mudflap looking back fender, holding off on this due to concern about people seeing my rear turn signals when I'm turning and about what to do for a license plate light.

Thank you, and yes it did around the Novi & Livonia area's. I guess they were spotty showers that did not effect the whole area.
