1 tripple 0 R from Central Ohio

Hello folks!! I purchased an '11 CB1000R a couple of months ago and I love it. I decided to look around to find some other folks in the native land of the USA that may or may not be having the same issues that I'm having....locating an aftermarket for this bike... There seems to be a drought for parts as far as cosmetics go. I realize this bike was introduced here for the '11 season, but the bike has been around for a number of years in Europe. Anyway, I hope to find out a bit of info and hear ideas from the community.

GO BUCKS!! (OSU)

Unfortunately this is the only pic I have at the moment. Though I have some new goodies coming in the mail. Just ordered an integrated tail light and bar end mirrors. I've already put the yoshi eliminator on it.

Planning on doing an exhaust and PC next. Not quite sure which exhaust would be my choice. I don't really want to go "main stream" and go with a Yoshi, but it sure does look good. The Ixil isn't all that appealing to me at the moment, and there are some custom pipes out there are lookin' quite nice. If I were able to get my hands on:

I would certainly enjoy the hell out of it! There's just something about the fact that this thing is totally obnoxious that makes me want it more and more every time I hear it.
