Re: Long time listener, first time caller!
Bikes, like cars look better when you can see they get driven and enjoyed. A little dirt, some oil drips and rock nicks in the paint are badges of honor.
Welcome to the forum. I hope you have as good a luck with all of the aftermarket parts you're planning on using as you did with your original build. You've obviously got a good grasp on what it takes to do it right so far. Enjoy, ride safe.
