Bamboo's "slowly but surely" bike build
I wouldn't call it a bike build since I'm not starting from the ground up. It's more of a log of all the things I'm adding to her as I am able to. I wanted to do this with my previous Daytona but never got around to it. I'm also a bit late to this one. I have a few things on her and added more today! I'll update things as I get to them.
I never really thought I would be on the 2013 Daytona! When they were first announced and pictures revealed, I didn't like them. They started to grow on me but I already had my 2008 Daytona which was paid off with a few mods on it already. I just didn't see it in my near future! Until, a young lady for whatever reason she had, made a left turn on her red arrow and I clipped the front of her car! As any rider would feel, the first thing I was worried about was how bad the bike was! Bwahahaha! Looking back on it and going through some pictures I took immediately after the accident, I'm incredibly lucky to have walked away with just a few bruised and sore ribs!
So shopping for my new bike started almost immediately! My wife wasn't too happy about it but I told myself and her that I wasn't going to be scared from this. Although a little PTSD did kick in, I forced myself to get over it quickly.
Here she is the day I got her off the lot! March 15, 2013 with 6 miles on the odometer!

This is her bone stock after my 42-ish mile ride from the dealer. Man I was a happy islander!
