I second that. Those are some really awesome photos. Nice work!
Is that the full akra system?
Thank you! I wanted to take some good photos once the mods were done. Yes, it is the full Akra system. Great growl and nice to have the extra hp and torque.

Just another photo, the Trellis frame really pops and adds some nice contrast. Have to take some shots with the mountains as a backdrop in Banff.

I finally got a phone mount. It even has a usb socket. A 15 dollar ebay special ~ https://www.ebay.com/itm/143085128441





Do you think this would fit a radar detector?

I like the way that look. Can you post a close up picture?

Per your request. The rounded shims (laying on the fender) fit within the grommet. They simply provide an outward force that helps keep the whole assembly plugged and secured within the triple-tree.

Last night I installed the Xpel Ultimate Plus Paint Protection Film from Tankslapper, it went not too bad, I think It was a little bit too cold to install it. I'm happy with the result, a little bit of small air bubles but still. At least my paint won't come off  :821:

Installed the Luimoto seat cover.  Definitely an improvement to seat comfort and pretty simple to do...

Fitted a double bubble screen bought from ebay for 20. Works reasonably well at redirecting the wind blast. Still deciding if I like the look of a taller screen or not though. One downside was I had to move the horn back to the stock mounting point because of the after market bracket. If I decide that the new screen is staying I'll make an extra bit of metalwork to put the horn back underneath the screen.

For fuel, the minimum I run is 97 octane. For general riding around/commuting to work, about 150 miles to a tank is about normal for me. Ive had 160 a couple of times when Ive run it all the way down and once did 172 on a long run, but that way all main roads between 40 and 60mph. But as a general rule of thumb, Im looking for fuel once I get to 140 miles or the fuel gauge starts flashing.
