So I used to do a thread like this on another forum. It can be interesting and keeps people involved in the latest happening on our bikes.
You can post that you took it for a ride or washed it to full rebuilds and massive mods. Pics are encouraged as well.

I will start with What I accomplished this last week and just finished.

Added a Cobra Slash Cut exhaust, Thunder Round with new K&N Air cleaner, Billet covers on the sides of the motor. Changed brake and clutch fluids, changed motor oil and filter, New PC III installed, added 4452 ISO®-Wing Pegs for the passenger, Chrome Dipstick, license plate holder and swing arm pivot covers.

Yes it was not in a day but when I rode it this morning, it made a weeks worth of blood and sweat worth it.

I added some hard lowers because the buffeting was beating the hell out of me. I was close to ripping my shirt off. The lowers helped a lot.

This actually was done yesterday, does it still count? Had to work today. Spent a couple hrs. and finished off a can of "Multi-surface Pledge" cleaning the X from my trip to SPyKER's 3 weeks ago. Waiting for my new Paladins to arrive any day. Maybe one of these weeks I can get a friend to post some pix for me.

Well, yesterday I swapped out my Cobra highway bars for Cobra "fatties" and took it for a short ride. First time since I laid it down couple of weeks ago.

Anything counts as long as the bike was involved. :)

Busy 2 days w/ rain delay. Ground fix, Radiator flush, Brake bleed, LED repair, Re-mounted PC3, Installed secondary horn, Removed access pair parts (from previous owner) Then took a 180 mile ride out into the Florida back country. Alafia State Park & Lithia Springs are great destinations.
