I think I'm done...for now.

So here is how it all started back in September of 2012. (Good catch Post 6)



Since then I've added the chrome side steps and replaced the chrome door strips and GY Forteras with the 2014 lettering and Nitto Terra Grapplers.



After that I ordered a VG Sharkfin and Gibson Axle-Back exhaust. I also went and had the front windows tinted 20% to match the rears. You'll also see the 1Up USA bike rack on the back. I don't have pictures of the Volant CAI and BT Catch Can I've got under the hood.




So hopefully I'm done for a little while...I keep going back and forth on an audio upgrade and interior LED conversion but I think I can wait a bit on those.

Enjoy,
Derek

Re: I think I'm done...for now.

Nice ride and as said, nice bike, I'd like to be on mine but a miss timed jump and two weeks of agony with a very swollen collar bone makes it hard.

Enjoy your ride at the weekend.

Re: I think I'm done...for now.

Great setup. Can you let us know what you think of the 1UP rack? And what roof rack do you have? Is it the Mopar/Thule?

Thanks!

I love the1Up rack. The price is the only factor that gave me pause but after using it for a month or so and taking a trip up north with two bikes I can honestly say its the sturdiest rack I've ever seen. Those bikes aren't going anywhere. Loading and unloading is equally impressive in how fast and easy it is. It is a very well made rack and I can't find an area that they skimped on with it.

As for my roof rack, you are correct, it's the Mopar "Thule" one. No complaints with that either. Worked great with a ski/board carrier this past winter.
