Hey everyone, My name is Nick and after riding dirt my whole life I finally decided to step it up and buy my first street bike (a 2011 650R). I will be picking her up in 5 days, very excited to finally be apart of the street bike fam. Cant wait to get out there and learn everything I can and of course ride! Pic's will be up when I get her!

Here she is everyone! Took the train up 5 hours to pick her up and drove her back...started with 0 miles and i really didnt want to start racking em up...so now she has 375...a couple more hundred and she'll be broken in...driving 5 hours straight wasnt to bad...very comfortable but my ass still hurts, lol...she runs and drives like a dream and I couldnt be happier with my choice of bike...first on my list of things to do to her are get rid of the side reflectors and rear fender, then buy a tinted shield and a yoshi exhaust...
heres some pics...

Ya I saw all those carbon pieces, they look sick in all but me..not a big fan of carbon and chrome for that matter...

How do you like those sliders? they look like good quality.
You got yourself a sweet looking bike man...ya we pretty much have all the same thoughts on what to do with our bikes...I havent seen that thread of yours before...
I was looking at that rear seat cover as well...
This is what all start off doing for my bike...thanks to that site you gave me...

Well I haven't done the halo's.....yet!!! That thread started as a wish list, much like yours. My signature has all of the mods I have done so far!!
Those grips will be next on my list as well!!

BTW, the sliders are great, very sturdy. Just have fun removing all of the front fairings!! And I do mean ALL the front fairings!!!
so do you have the same yoshi as I want? and if so how do you like it (sound, performance wise)

is there any step by step procedure to remove the fairing anywhere?

Now this is going to be my first MOD I do to my bike...once I have it all done ill post it in the MOD section...let me hear some feedback on this...

I just ordered a used wind screen for my bike on ebay for 15 bucks...my plans are to cut about 2-3 inches off of it, fine sand it down and dark tint it...heres a pic from secret soi that was perfect to use for this...

going a bit towards the street fighter end, are we? I've never seen one done like this, so it's going to be interesting reading your impressions.
We will see what happens...not sure if i wanna go that rounded route...im going to try a few different ways of taping off sections of the screen and see how they look on the bike...once i have the screen ill take pics of all the ways i come up with and hopefully get some good feed back on which one to pick...but all in good time...

This is most likely how I will do my screen mod (maybe)...I think it'll look way better this way...flow a lot more with her curves and wont interfere with the raised sides of the screen...
