    To me, the lightbar is an Ebay mod. Ruckus lights are nostalgic and something to set it apart.

    Update 10: SHE DONE!

    Last thing to do was vinyl on the fairings. I learned a couple things from my test run, but I am by all means still not an expert. While at driven this year, I saw this one car that had a pattern under the vinyl, so I thought since I have a vinyl cutter for decals, why not try something similar out. So I made some decals of some of the suppliers I used on the build, and put those underneath the vinyl wrap on one panel. I think it turned out pretty good.

    Its been finished for about a month now, and I have been riding it quite a bit to work. One thing I have noticed, even though I used primer glue on spots I know would have extra tension, there has been some lifting over time.

    I will be at illmotion's sunday school on the weekend, so people can see this thing in person.

    First time clicking this thread. I still can't figure out why I don't know what a "Grom" is.
    At any rate, props to Beyond as a forum for allowing the mean criticism post that you responded to. I've always felt that if you put your shit out there, you can't just await the shower of hand-jobs & praise awhile having anything remotely negative deleted. That's bullshit, "participation badges for EVERYONE", soy-boy garbage. You gotta take some heat for not matching everyone's tastes and grow a pair in the "no fucks given" category when someone flames you. Big deal.
    Plus, I don't get the impression you lost a lot of sleep and chewed on the soap in the shower after the mean mean man said your shit is ugly. Good for you, on that!

    Grom is a major popular 125cc legal bike that ANYONE and their mom can ride.

    I'll take a Z125 over the grom though.

    Turned out great. Really like following this.
    Personally I like the ruck lights.

    Might have put 20km on my ruckus this season.
