Dear family, friends, and acquaintances: For those wondering why I haven't been online lately, and haven't been posting to my blog. this is my reason...

(passenger foot rest damaged)
(not visible, but rack bolts sheered)
(Turn signals to be integrated with tail light, license plate area to be shaved down)


Disassembly



















(Sheered screw holder on the inside of fairing) 
(used JB Plastic Weld to re-secure the fastener area, worked quite well)
