Thanks, since the pic was taken I've added black velocity stacks, a instrument cowel, and have black supertrapps and a fatmax bellypan on the way.

Got any pics to share? My look super mean...

I'll take some more pics this weekend. I'm still waiting on my tax refund, so supertrapps are still on the way.

I'm now thinking of ditching the instrument cowel and adding a fatmax fairing.

Here is the only two I've taken so far.

Wow, way Old post. I had to download them pictures cause I didn't have them any more.
In almost 4 years, This is what happened. Bodywork, Electrics, wayvy rotors, Cams, Squeeze, bracing, HID, pipes and more pipes, Carb Kits.... Well you know how things progress. Worse than RC helicopters I was involved with. You just can't leave shit well enough alone, you always have to add on.

I also dumped the trapps, for a Kerker with a carbon fiber can. Just sold the can, and put on IXIL's dual hyperflow muffler. I'm liking the sound. To me its more of a bark, yet smoother than Kerker's 2.5"

I don't think I'd want to be stuck riding behind you for any length of time though. ;)

I've been a member here for about 4 years.
I don't own a Gen II, so I really don't have much to contribute. I just look around and read up on whats going on regarding Vmax. As far as buying a Gen II, I couldn't answer that, I did go after one, when it was rumored to be the '08 model. But, up here the dealers were left in the dark on when it was going to be released, so I took the $10k down payment and bought my bike, outright, off the showroom floor back in '07. I figured it was there, and real not just speculation. I don't regret it at all, especially the no payments or lean holder.

I tend to keep up the maint and care for my vehicles and hang on to them for a good while, Before I replace them. The only thing I didn't keep around was my Chopper. It was fast, loud and looked good, but damn did it kill my back. I had it for only a couple of years. The Vmax replaced it. I still have the truck I took my driver's test in back in 1984. My Goldwing was 20 years old when I sold it back in '05, when I got the chopper. Who knows If and when I'll buy a Gen II, there might be a Gen III on the market (not that OCC looking thing :vomit: but a real Yamaha Gen III). There is still play value left in my Vmax.
