Nodding Yes The PASHNIT Busa gets a whole new look !!

Recently changed the entire look of the Pashnit Busa in a single swoop by swapping out the rims with a set of silver TL1000 rims. Finally got around to putting them on a short while ago.




Back to the Double Bubble, been using the Zero Gravity SR low profile one for awhile. There is only a slight difference in the airflow I think with really cold weather (34 degrees this morning on ride to work ) but the DB helps a little.




Brake Rotors, dash panels & Mirrors were painted by Race Ready (he's the one with the really crazy custom busa in Florida), really enhances the look of the bike. Never much liked the stock mirrors, and now they've really grown on me with the matching color.




The nose- I got a yellow high beam bulb awhile back. I'll have to put that in and try it out.




Bagster Tank Bra & Tobin, plus added the pre-formed screens to the tail, plus the lil sight hole under the seat.

Re: New Look for the New Pashnit Busa

Good shot of the fairing screens- these can do so much for the look of the bike!

For in-city commuting- the blind-spot mirrors really help with boulevard traffic & lane-splitting. Throttlemeister & heated grips do the freeway duties during the winter since my commute is an hour each way.

I got the rear wave rotor from Galfer, but oddly, never use the rear brake anymore. Don't need to with braided lines- one-fingered brakin' is all she needs now.

In the tail is an on-board air compressor (Cycle Pump), plus with Ig's Hump Mod- I now can fit the Geza Bike Cover inside the hump and carry a bike cover with me where ever I go.




Bagster side view- The bagster I've been seeing their ads in the Moto Mags for awhile now. Europeon product, don't think anybody makes this stateside. Looks much better than the Second Look Tank Skin I had on there earlier. Had the Bagster tank bra on while the bike was at the Motorcycle Show and it generated a lot of interest. They make them for a lot of bikes of course. http://www.rideaddict.com is supplier for those in the US. (out of LA)




The tankbag clips to the top of it.

Was thinking of getting a Stem Stand Mount & finally give in on the whole GPS thing we are all talking bout round here. Then maybe I'll understand all the GPS lingo when we talk about it.

Re: The PASHNIT Busa gets a whole new look !!

Holy smokes Tim! You've been busy.Lookin nice! That double bubble is sweet. It was 35 on my way to work today. Mine makes a huge difference in the comfort zone. I got my XM reinstalled and all set now. Sure makes commuting a pleasure. What is the temperature when it's 35 out and your cruising at 75 on the freeway?? Just curious.

My wind chill chart doesn't go that high on wind speed...60 mph at 35 deg. F feels like 17 deg F.

Note: Equivalent temp. is based on exposed skin in the shade at those values of wind speed/temp.

I was surprisingly comfy on the ride in this morning. No electrics(don't own any). Even had my normal summer gloves on. Might need the winter gloves and some warmer socks tomorrow though. Supposed to get very cold tonight.

Very nice Tim...quite a change from the bike I saw at the show.

Hmmm, would the GS look good in a tank-bra?
