    Thanks man! I am glad you appreciate my hard work! The physical conversion was the easy part. Getting someone that would inspect it and fill out the right forms with out turn signals and getting the DMV to cooperate was the hard part! Here in WV turn signals aren't required by law, but inspection stations and the DMV don't know that. But I finally got it done and I have to say I'm QUITE proud of my creation.

    This is what I have been doing when not riding. Changed my 05X from red to white then purchased a graphics kit from DeCal Works, I had the itch to change something on the bike and the original plastics were showing there age. This was the cheapest way to change the look. White is so nice, it reminds me of my 99 XR250 I had 10 years ago.

    Now I need to get a skid plate, I can't justify dropping 1k on rims just to change the color.

    Cheers

    So I had the great idea to take a mid afternoon ride with my budy. We take off around 3pm ride for 30 or so miles. Start heading back and about half way its pitch black I'm fallowing his little brake light and shadow through that . ! Luckily he rides a crf250x and had a head light or it would a been a camp out and ride back in the morning lol. That trail is pretty nasty in the day I can't even begin to explain how I road it back in the dark. Anytime I would lose feel of the trail I would just start turning into the bank and stop lol. One hell of a ride. I would of traded my bike for a flash light at some points
