Default Got This in the Mail the Other Day

So I found a good deal on a slip on and pulled the trigger. I haven't done my own work on my bike before, didn't have the tools. However, I hooked this up myself and it made me feel like I accomplished something. I know it's an easy mod for most, but it was a good start for me.

I agree. For some reason people on the interweb trash TBR exhausts. I've had one on my Concours 14 since it was new and it's held up well and sounds great.

I know somebody that has had two brothers on their bike for over five years now and it still looks great. I don't know what that guy ^^^^^ is talking about.

I totally understand! my current situation does not help mod the bike with any kind of urgency... i've only done 4 mods to it since i got it, and 2 of those were things that i move from bike to bike... so I probably shouldn't count those.....
still don't even have frame sliders....
