Just picked her up today! 99 1200s with 8k miles!
I plan to drive the shit out of her all summer until winter comes then do some work.
Powdercoat wheels.
chain conversion
new bars
new seat
bobbed fender.

Plan to keep the showa suspension and air cartridge shocks for a while. This thing handles great.

A little update, got a 2-1 exhuast and a better seat on the bike. Not my favorite style exhaust. The exhaust is a bassani with baffles, and the 2-1 header im not sure about. It was too good of a deal to pass up. Nothing special yet. But its running better. Mid controls are half way on. Next on the list is some new bars, remove fender(add fork brace and possibly tube gators), remove more junk.

Lose the fender and lowering blocks on the rear shocks. Then it'll be coming around a lot more. Looking good though.

They are talking about the cartridge shocks on the S model ........they are badass, and sometimes folks prefer handling over looks.

Yeah this bike will be function and fit for me over the visuals. Want to cut about 50 lbs, get a more aggressive riding position, and set the bike up for my height and weight. Road the bike to work today ~50 miles and these bars are awful. I want to change them asap but it will require all new cables going back to stock length and such. It will be best done over winter i think.
