    Definitely doing a fender eliminator, but I built the one on my FZ, will probably do the same with the XSR.

    not sure how I'm doing the tail light yet. I like the round but I need to figure out cosmetically how I want the bike to look before making a decision.

    True, I've seen ideas of basically what looks like an led strip that tucks between the seat and subframe. It cleans up the back immensely in my opinion.

    I was thinking about doing something with a small tail light mounted upside down under the seat like the Sport Classic 1000s.

    That's not a bad idea. Would the XSR factory light mounted upside down look good or you think that's too big?

    Someone here did that, I can't remember who. I'm not a big fan of that look, but everyone has their own taste. I actually like the stock tail light, so I left it...

    I'm actually not even sure how its bolted down yet. I'd also have to hang the plate a little lower too.

    Its supposed to rain a bunch this week, my exhaust should be here today, I still have the temp registration from the dealer so I might just get some measurements and try to bend something up and see what I come up with, that way when my plate shows up I can just bolt it on and go.

    possibly something like this, maybe a little smaller with the turn signals, possibly even integrating them.

    Glad to hear you're back in riding form. I just relocated from right by 8a on the Turnpike. About 5 years ago we had a black bear within 1/2 mile from our home. And of course deer all over the place.Don't call it a comeback-picture1.jpg
    Best wishes! Have fun!
