Carbon fiber wheels for sure.

Most folks don’t notice which makes it an almost invisible farkle.

Lol, word of the day. Had to look that one up and when I said it out loud to the GF I got giggles out of my daughters.

Just picked up new levers for the gsxr. The shorty's it came with sucked.

Fog lights, saw a bmw guy and noticed increased visability. Got a pair of yellow lightbulbs in it. First I put the crashbar on then lights, both are good to have. Wired light in using my own wiring kit, painful wiring.

Do you have a garage door opener activated by your headlight control switch?

Garage door switch activated by power to the highbeam. I think that's the first time I've ever heard of that trick before. That's genius!

Lots of kits out there that will do this or you can wire the coil of a small relay that closes when you hit the hi beams. Open up a garage door opener and wire the switch to a set of normally open contacts on the relay. Simple.
