An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
Like a "drifter" I was born to "ride" alone
An' I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time = Whitesnake

Flippen stunning!!! I like the chopped rear fender and the LED flickers!

On a semi-related note - what happens if you have a red KLR (red plastics) and you replace them with black ones? Does it affect anything on the licensing side, as the papers will say it is red?
