Hi Everyone,
 
A little background on myself: 
 
I'm 27 years old and live in Orange County. I've grown up around motorcycles my whole life. I helped my dad build bikes since I was old enough to pull a brake lever and hold, and release it and hold it again, or measure sag while he sat on it. He build everything from TL-1000Rs, multiple GSX-Rs, a few Aprilias (2016 RSV-4 RF is current toy) and a CBR-1000rr Repsol edition. Nothing on these bikes was stock. If my dad could get to the bolt, it was replaced with a Titanium version.
 
I've grown up going to Laguna Seca and now COTA for the races every year since 1998, so I'm no stranger to the riding scene. 
 
I had a dirt bike as a kid, but I was forced to step away after Mom freaked out after an accident. I finally have something that I can build on my own in the form of a 2016 Carbon Grey/Night Fluo FZ-07. This will be my little project while learning to ride on the street which is new to me. 
 
I've wasted no time in customizing the bike. I plan to install a good amount of mods on this bike. Below is the current mod list.
 
Current Mods:
TST Industries Fender Eliminator
TST Flush Mount LED front Turn Signals (Smoked)
TST Integrated Tail light (Clear)
Pazzo Shorty Brake and Clutch levers
Galfer Performance Stainless Steel lines (GP Kit)
Galfer Performance Sintered Pads front and rear
Galfer Performance Wave Rotors front and rear
Ermax Belly Pan (waiting for paint)
Ermax Radiator Guards (waiting for paint)

Considerations:
Hordpower airbox
SC Project CRT exhaust
Power Commander V
Custom Dyno Tune
Carbon Fiber bits? Not sure how I feel about the carbon fiber against the Carbon Grey
Blue anodized hardware?
Frame sliders, fork sliders, rear swing arms spools
Bar end mirrors
Suggestions?
 
Now for the pics. I'll update this with captions soon.
 
Here she is the day they slapped the "sold" tag on here.

The paparazzi got a picture of me in on Mount Palomar.

This is the GP that Galfer put on the front of the bike. It splits the lines at the master cylinder and runs a line down to each caliper.
