Everything looks amazing, man! Great job!

You gave me some awesome ideas regarding your accent lighting... I have the exact same remote and I HATE having it attached to my bike keying. Attaching it to the handlebar for quick access is a great idea. Did you use any special bracket or just silicone to attach it?

Also LOVE the idea of putting the light control box underneath the side body panel. I have so much crap under my seat I was beginning to wonder what I was going to do with it all. Relocating that control box to the side panel is genius!

Now the real question is:

Who is going to nominate this bike for SOTM?

I already used my nomination...

This is the headlight bucket I used.

This is the projector I used:
http://eshop.ktautopart.com/motorcyc...er/kt-mt5.html

I went with that one over the highly recommended TRS because the KT had the angel eye and demon eye. In retrospect, the demon eye isn't that noticable and is only visibly at all when the bike is turned on, but not yet started. When its on, the actual HID will easily overpower the demon eye.

Both angel eye and demon eye are blue. I also got the 55W ballast with the 6000K bulb.

I've heard great reviews about TRS quality of glass. Mine from the night time video you can see isn't perfect, there are imperfections in the glass that show up on the road. TRS might be better.

Here's TRS:

I would sell my V&H someday but I'm not wild about shipping it.
