A black one
I do managed services for busineses and one of my customers In sandy ran out of urinal mats (the kind that lay on the floor) so I shoved two of them in the back of my jacket like smell good back protectors and smashed up bull run after work for a little delivery and a smoked briskit dip. So much better than coming out in my work truck.

Put some finishing touches on my '04 600RR streetfighter I built in 2014. Original build here:
I built a bike and I like it! | PNW Riders
But wait! A forum poster here said that all streetfighters are junk. Hmmm. So either my bike is junk or it isn't a streetfighter.
Hmmm! So. The original overflow bottle on my 12 year old, ummm, "custom" bike was annoying me. Only 4k miles but it looked not as mint as everything else. Had to have a new one since there is no longer a fairing for it to hide behind.
old gross one
The stock rear plate hanger and signals were a little wonky looking. Ordered a TST Industries integrated tail light and plate hanger. Pretty decent stuff. A couple gripes though.
The light is supposed to be pre-wired, plug and play. Well. The darn turn signal leads are too short. Had to extend them. I also got their signal relay which wires into the harness and keeps the winking rate constant and not like a rabid squirrel.
The plate hanger seems made for a few different 600RR models. I made it work and darn if that plate is not on there for real. Not hidden, its in plain sight. I didn't bother with a lic plate light.
The tail previously
Had a vintage Honda "wing" emblem so I stuck it on the seat cowl. Still deciding if I like it. I think I do.
Never "finished". But. Closer.

'14 St3R, '05 DR650
I thought I liked the silencer on my DR650's DB exhaust, but I think it was causing it to run really rich. Removed that bastard, threw half a can of sea-foam into the tank, and rode her to work today. She's louder than I prefer, but seems to breathe a bit bitter.
I'm tempted to install an A/F sensor in the header and rig up a gauge for it, cuz it's just impossible to tell how lean/rich it's running without one. Maybe next winter...

On my 600RR a few more details.
The rear brake fluid reservoir is a tricky item on this model. Stock it has a nasty looking fat hose that runs up under the tail. I had eliminated all that and just had the smallest piece of hose without a reservoir. Worked fine but with only a few cc's of capacity the fluid got dirty far too quickly. And what a bee-yatch to fill and bleed without a reservoir.
What I had
And now after rooting around for the exact length bolts/proper nuts/washers and fabbing a bracket from an aluminum barrel spacer. Also used part of a random steel bracket from some part of my past that had a captured nut already in the perfect spot.
Sourced a new Brembo reservoir, proper hose and wire clamps from Ducati.
Yes its ridiculously overkill but hey why stop now?
