A Slow and Subtle Build Thread

I'm starting this thread knowing it will definitely take a while to get the bike where I want it. Also keeping in mind this is my first sport bike, and it's brand new, so no major work is going into it. Mainly cosmetic, aside from a slip on. Just always nice to hear new ideas and about new parts etc.

The bike is my brand new 2012 R6. It's white with the black and candy red tribal scheme, factory option apparently. I have an affliction with white bikes. She's called my Death Machine (irony). And again she's plenty fast as it is just aiming to make her my own.

Enjoy. :

Here's a picture stock, aka about a week ago.

Tomorrow I get my Puig double profile dark smoke windscreen and Puig anodized red windscreen screws. I'll post a pic once the crap weather clears.

Alright, here's a question:

I've been browsing for a slip on. I personally have come to an argument between two, and they're both completely different styles. The first is a Yoshi carbon slip on, the other one is a Toce dual megaphone. Any personal suggestions? I'm trying to find something that sounds loud when I want it but quiet when I don't, and that doesn't sound like a swarm of angry locusts.

I have Jardine GP-1 but I am going to have to change once I get my MJS Midpipe and PCV because the GP-1 is mad loud with the cat delete! Yoshi slipons would be legit i guess!

Re: A Slow and Subtle Build Thread

If the toce exhaust one you're talking about is the double down, I think it looks pretty damn nice
