Full Bike photos

Here are 2 photos of the whole bike from 150 mile shakedown ride after mods completed.

First one is taken in Woodland Park, Colorado, at 8,500 feet elevation, with Pikes Peak in the background

Second one is looking down on Cripple Creek, Colorado from the overlook at around 9,300 feet elevation.

It's been a very wet Spring so far and there is still a lot of snow above 10,000 feet.

Your rim tape really helps break up all that blue on the wheels. Looks good much better.

I tried a 3/16" solid tape but didn't like the way it looked. The graduated and tapered looks much better IMHO and it DOES tone down all that blue to a less in-your-face look.

Have you installed the Yamaha frame sliders and of so did you do them yourself?
They still haven't arrived at the dealer. they were a pre-order item back in April and they have no idea when they will come in.

Where did you get both of these upgrades? I am interested in them both! How is that wind deflector treating you?
I bought the Rizomas off eBay. I set up a search with email notifications and a set eventually showed up.

Here is the link for the wind deflector, it's $75 now.

I only use it on long rides where the wind would get tiring after 100 miles or so. Carry it in my tank bag when not using it.

great looking bike! swapping the mirrors makes a big difference aesthetically they probably function way better that the stock ones too I bet

I put a nice sealer on it as soon as it got home. Hasn't seen rain yet and I keep it covered in a garage so it stays clean.
