THE WIFES BIKE





----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, I've been thinking about doing this for a while so here goes!!! I think it'll be nice for me to at least have a thread that I can look back through as my updates continue.

When I first bought the bike last year (with 0 miles) the first thing I did was kill that dragon tail and replace it with a fender elim and got the Clear Alternatives LED tail light. My wife got her second bike, 2010 kawi 250R. Tons of fun to ride!


Next was to kill the exhaust and go for the hotbodies megaphone. Love LOVED the look, because it was unique.


Saw some guys doing the Audi LED style lights, so this was my first "electronical" update. Took me some time, but I got it. Was nervous as hell cutting wires on my new baby!


Replaced the wings with Watsen Design LED Flush Mounted Signals. Also got Shogun Frame Sliders.


Added a GPR V4


CRG Levers and Rizoma Lux Grips...Grips felt odd at first, but I actually ended up really liking them a lot.


Puig Double Bubble Windscreen


Bought my wife a 2009 ZX6R. Sold the 250.


Got a Targa cowl....I really loved it! I also opted in for the clear Stompgrip...which later started to peal and was swapped out for black.


Then I was riding down the highway about a month later...hit a good bump and felt it come lose behind me.....reached back and it was gone!! This is what happens when concrete meets the Targa!



The company let me return the jacked up Targa, didn't have any left, so they sent me the OEM seat cowl. I didn't like it at first, but then realized....damn it looks sexier then the Targa! Then two bikes went off to get married and live happily ever after.




After doing some digging I ended up getting the Bohemian Rearsets


Jmejiaa helped me install the brake switch. Not that bad of an install.


And here she was with all of the current mods

LOL, thanks man! My wife ACTUALLY got me in to riding....legally, lol. When I was young I had scooters, dirt bikes etc. She got her license before me and gave me the push.

Great pics/story.

Your bike is one of the ones I look for on here when I was looking into different colored rear sets. Then I saw you had great looking grips and saw in your sig what they were.

Is that a two bros on the kawi?

Thanks man. Yup....the bike came with it. My wife loves it, so don't think it's going anywhere. TRUST ME...I tried to get her on a 6, but she was stuck on the green after having her 250. Her TB is pretty loud....to me I think it has a nice deep tone.
