Nice! Sweet matte finish. What did you do to the lower part of tank to get that look?

They are "small tank knee pads" from Jammer. You can pick 'em up on Ebay pretty cheap. And thanx for the compliments :D

Nice looking bike. Pipes look good. Some might remember a guy named Sano that did his pipes sort of like that. did you do the kickstand mod after lowering your bike?

Havent done the kickstand mod, doesnt appear to be a problem yet. I really like the way it handles lowered. Center of gravity seems better or something. No problems with scraping yet. :)

I think if you had saddlebags you might need to do the kickstand modification. Without an additional load, I think it'll still be angled enough to not have to worry.
I would just be a little more wary and careful on the highway because of the fact that if you scrape while doing those types of speeds, Whew. It might not be pretty.
Otherwise, I like the lowered bike look too. I'm a shorter guy, and when I was younger i wanted a sportbike... never could get them because my toes couldn't touch
both sides of the ground when I sat on a hayabusa :( Younger dreams... now I got my fix of speed regardless but it was disappointing younger

Anyways on the topic of saddlebags, check out Viking, cheap and high quality http://www.vikingbags.com/suzuki-boulev ... lebags.htm
I got the third from the left ones with a lock. The installation wasn't too bad and the bags are high quality. I like the fact they hold their shape not like some of the
HD guys who ride around with sagging saddlebags!
