Mods About Done

I’ve had my CB1000R for exactly 7 weeks now.  In that time I’ve already covered 3,000 miles including a camping trip to Dover and a day out to Belgium!

One of the main reasons I bought this particular bike was because I LOVE how it looks.  I think it’s the bike version of a Ford Mustang.  It’s not the most aerodynamic looking bike, it’s not the most comfortable but it looks mean, vicious and full of power.  That doesn’t mean there weren’t things I wanted to change or add though!

Over the past few weeks I’ve (well, mainly a friend) added a rear hugger, a radiator grill cover, removed the rear pegs, added gold break and clutch levers, mirror extenders and a belly pan. I think now I’m just about done!  Maybe a Pillion Seat Cowl at some point (a cover instead of the passenger seat) and a screen for longer distance riding, but I think the screen might spoil the look, so it would need to be detachable.

With such a great looking bike, one of the first thing I wanted to sort was some decent security, so a new motion sensitive light goes up, with a camera in the window which will e-mail me pictures of anyone on the driveway. As well as this, the bike will be secured to my car with a top of the line Almax chain!  All I have left to look into is a tracker.

Finally, this week I bought myself some new (well, sold as second hand, but have never been used) Alpinestars 1 piece leathers and I’m all ready for my first track day!

Now I’m looking at luggage options and it seems Kriega do some very nice gear.  I’ve bought a R25 Rucksack and US10 Tail Pack to give me places to pack things should I go travelling.  I’ll maybe get one of their US20 (20 litre) tail packs will be a good addition, a slightly larger pack that will clip and release from the same attachments of the US10.


Hi there where did you buy your belly pan from and how much did it cost
