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.

Looks awesome, bet it sounds great!

Atleast this is a step towards doing more mechanical work on your bike! Good luck!

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.

Haha between mods that I want to get for my bike and some stuff I want to do for my car, my savings account really hates my Amazon wishlist.

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....
