Love the paint job Ella....shoulda came stock that way
Thanks. There is also usually a XENA motion sensor disk alarm that locks on the front disk and rests just above the chain. If anyone touches the chain or the bike, the alarm will send out some warning chirps which I can hear from my apartment. Then it's time to get out my really fun toys (almost shot a neighbor's cat last week). After my exBF's CBR1000rr was stolen from same spot, I can't be too careful! I've seen better security systems from others here on the forum, but there aren't any electrical outlets near this spot for me to do the security web cam set up. Oh well, that's what insurance is for. Also, I've been leaving my Ninja unlocked so if someone is just dying to steal a bike, that one is "easy pickings" (Please don't tell the folks at the ninjette.org forum).

Starting to get used to how the winglets look. The match is good, it's just the angle causes more light to make it seem slightly orange.

ELLainLA: I noticed foam grips on one of the bikes, like them?
When I owned my Katana 1100, back in the day, I used them and really liked them. However, that bike was heavier and slower, 162mph top speed, compared to my S1K.
Thoughts?

Considering my bike is lowered, and I'm 110 lbs on stock suspension, and the streets of LA are not exactly baby-butt-smooth, I have more vibration/bump problems than most other riders. (I am getting springs & suspension set up this weekend). I've found that the heavy Throttlemeister ends combined with the Grab On Grips (grabongrips.com) really helped a LOT. Before this set up, my hands were going numb during my 6 mile commute through neighborhood streets. Now, my hands are fine and I've also noticed that the mirrors provide better visibility due to less vibration too. Also, my heated grips still work perfectly.
