    For me, it's about being *different*. Lots of people putting Mille swingarms on. Yep, those are beautiful- and I've got one, too. But it's been done.

    Maybe I should convince someone with a Futura to trade his swingarm for my Mille swingarm...

    Nice one there TreeTops. You look a bit small in fact on the bike! I wonder why that is, for someone well over 6'4"!
    Hoh, Hum, another shitty day in paradise!

    Lets see, it has been a while since I have listed the mods to the bike and the 1 that still eludes me is the damn swingarm!

    Renegade high mounts
    Renegade air kit
    Renegade chip
    PCIII USB
    Smoked taillight
    Motobitz front signals
    Integrated rear signals
    Gold Valve forks
    TiN coated forks (Bling!)
    Mille shock
    Puig screen
    Helibar risers
    Polished wheels

    I think that is it, but I am sure the list will change with the winter months quickly approaching. It is the best bike I have ever ridden.

    I had to re-post mine since Micah asked for the "why", not the "what."

    I have done what I have because......to make it mine. I have added/removed things to my liking. I have always done that to my wheels. Even my Thunderace has at least six modifications to it. The car has five. Is this a homage to the post war modifications made to surplus Harleys? Perhaps, but it does follow in that tradition. I needed to turn it into something that was "me".

    We are looking at any motorcycle as a blank canvas to be turned into something we like. Making the custom fit from an off the shelf item.

    Look at me, I have Futura swingarm on the way! No, I don't really know why I will do this modification. Maybe peer pressure? If so, I blame Ico! It's all his fault!






    Akrapovic titanium cans
    Factory 1413 chip
    Fuel pressure regulator
    Renegade "airbox"
    Galfer RED! braided lines
    Evo fender eliminator
    Dual LED plate illumination ( to Carlos)
    Evo short velocity stacks ( to Okie)
    65C thermostat
    Ohlins rear shock ( to Carlos)
    MV stainless bar ends
    Aprilia lion head stickies (in place of those "Zorro" stickies)

    Waiting in the wings:
    Futura swingarm
    Sidewinder rear sprocket ( to Okie), though will be unusable
    Gilles rear sets ( to Okie)
    '03 Falco, in the fast colors
    '15 Caponord #119

    Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to roast in the depths of a Slor that day I can tell you.

    twink - you're just showing off your ultra-rare and highly desireable prop rod.

    better siphon a little oil out of 'er, too.

    I've got the Falco pipes with Akra's. Just decided to take them off one day to see how many babies I could get to cry at the same time.Sounds nice although not the quietist ay...
