Welcome to the forum, your bike looks good.
With that said, I am not a fan of tint on the brake or turn signals, bikes are hard enough to see as it is, particularly black ones. My personal perspective is to be as visible as possible, to include bright as possible tail lights, brake lights.... That little bit of increased visibility just might catch the eye of an inattentive driver. On the other hand, I suspect your shorty exhaust is loud. From your photos, it looks like your bikes rides low, has it been lowered?

Yeah, it's lowered. Roaring Toyz lowering link in the rear, fork tubes raised in the front.

I actually live in wisconsin, me and a few guys usually take a trip there every year for a few days, it's by the Tennessee NC border, US 129. We stay in Townsend TN usually at some cabins, awesome riding, check it out some time. Go to dealsgap.com or tailofthedragon.com

Trying to decide if I really wanna do that or not. The bike is brand new so I might just wait until I need to replace the chain so I don't swap a new chain for a new chain. Just seems more logical.
