Dare I say... I like your 9-1-9? lol
I like the cowl and mirrors on your bike.
The decals are not quite me, but I do like the overall.

Any more pictures on the turn signal mount/plate holder thing? That kind of looks about like what I need to do so I can put some extra turn signals on mine, just for a little extra safety.

Decals; I wanteed her to go with silver with red outline. BTW it is a 9-19, not a 9-1-9. Mirrors are cheap. $15 from a bicycle store.

I know the stories about the frame sliders. I have seen everything about that. From what I have seen there are 2 times there have been engine damage. Both times have been tip overs. I have unfortunatley tested sliders mounted on the engine at about 85 MPH. No problems when sliding.

The rear cowl is great. I wanted one for my bike but didn't want to pay like $220. I stole this one from e-bay for about $62. You can get them from Wild Hair. (not cheap)

I love the F-18. Not the best out there but somewhat functional and looks good. Tina says the f-16 is good as well. She just wants it darker. Time to get out the black paint.

beardking; I don't have any pics of the plate mount. I made it about 3 years ago. I may make one with the how to, and post it on here. There are a lot of guys who would like that I bet. Once it is done I can send it to you for a donation to WT. Interested?

Since nine one nine owners seems to call it all kinds of things, I will stick with 9 one 9. Off all the things I have called the bike, take it as a compliment.

I have to agree with this. The other way just doesn't sound right. It'd be like saying 9-1-1 instead of 9-11 for Sept. 11.
