As my times on the track dropped, and my commitment increased, I decided that I couldn't afford to push it any faster with all that pretty bling on the bike. Another few orders were made for SharkSkinz, AP rear sets, Zero Gravity Corsa bubble, and Renthal clip-ons and grips.
Much drama ensued when all the parts arrived as I realized I couldn't use the fairings without removing the OEM frame sliders -- and that the dealer hadn't returned the stock parts to me when I had them installed (note: always ask for the stock parts back!!! Or better yet, do the installation yourself - in retrospect it was fairly simple to do and I should have just done it myself). I managed to get what I need by combining some bolts from the techs toolbox at the dealer with some pretty-bolts from Pro-Bolt.
Then there was a little adventure with mounting the R/R and installing the barometric pressure sensor (I know this stuff is probably trivial for all of you - but there is a first time for everything -- and this was my first). Here's a couple of pictures of the bike in progress.
