Yes, I name my bikes. SBN meet Draco. Draco, SBN.

After the little mishap in the garage last month, I decided to make a few changes along with the repairs...

For reference here's what we started with:



The frame sliders and rear stand spools went on the day after I got it.

Then the fender elimination... (passenger pegs also came off right after this pic was taken)

Then... it fell in the garage causing quite a bit of damage, including...





The right mirror & clip-on snapped, the sub frame bent, the tank dented and shroud cracked, as well as the right tail smashed. Some other cuts and bruises also....

Insurance paid the claim, but I had a pretty high deductible, so I got as much as I could from Ebay, or located some used stuff locally. The rest I had to get from Suzuki. During the recovery process I decided to do some extra stuff to help myself get over it quicker. :D

Thanks! My SO did the fender elimination. The tag light is an automotive light and the tag is attached with L-brackets.

I'm afraid to remove the reflectors b/c the bike is so dark, that's the only thing that makes it visible from the side at night. Though, now that it's staying light for later in the day I won't be riding as much at night as I do in the winter. I'd like to find some black reflectors to put there.

sounds like she's got a lot to deal with right now so doesn't surprise me

she said they're doing a track day next weekend but I don't remember where

also told me about your new bike's garage mishap...that really sux! Looks great now though, even though the logo starts with an "S" instead of a "Y" :neener

Just kidding with you. I'll def. be checking out the GSX in the next year or two when looking into getting a track bike. That and the F4i's replacement (model escapes me at the moment). Prolly have to consider the R6 for obvious reasons but notice the order :D
