Got my baby home today!

Road back from the shop on my bike. It was great to be able to ride for a few miles.

Ordered all my plastics from gixxerfairing.com a few hours ago. Even put my GSXR with the g green. So awesome I can't wait to see it's new look. Sounding pretty good.

Other then bent forks and tore off plastics. Was banged around a little. Lol. $ Was the biggest thing. Couldn't drop all that at once. Plus I wanted to change the color so since my tires were off I decided to powder coat them.
New bearings
Newer forks and had new seals added
New chain
New sprocket
Ebc prolite brake disc front n rear
Pads as well
Upper n lower triple
Stabilizer

Still gotta paint the tank
And a few wish list items i'll get along the way. The most recent pics are without my fairings and unpainted tank. Should have plastics in a few weeks.
