Santa Claus came just in time. :big smile: I am picking up my XRS this evening. I have a few things to do before taking it out for the maiden voyage. Harness' and bar, rear view mirror, and welded tabs for my lighted whips. I will be out at Superstition Mountain from Weds 12/26 until Tues 1/1. So I get a whole week of good riding to break it in right!! :cool2: I will post pictures and upgrades on this thread as I complete them.

Hope everyone a has a Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season.

Got the Maverick home and ran it down the street a couple times. HOLY CRAP!!! Sure didn't feel that good on the test drive. Guys this thing smokes the tires from a dead stop start. Stay on the pedal and ass end stays loose while running down the street. Freakin awesome!! Can only imagine how good it will be with a good intake & exhaust.!!!

It's always way more fun to work on any vehicle when it includes upgrades instead of repairs.

Well my Totron 40" light-bar from ebay showed up yesterday. The only thing I didn't like was the box was damaged and the polystyrene foam was all beat to hell. The out side of the light does not appear to have any damage, so hopefully it will still work fine.
Now just waiting on the others items.
