Yes I can see the gauges fine. I'm just going to leave the speakers, not trying to get into a bunch of body work. This required zero modification to the bike, so it can swap back in like 30 minutes.

That's cool, but I'd rather have a radio.

That is beyond cool and for a guy like me who "NEVER" listens to a radio while riding, it's perfect. Where did you get that ?

That looks great! Wish the MoCo would offer a model like that stripped down without radio and gps. I know,to many on the forum it is blasphemy to say that lol. I was never into all that technical stuff and like my bikes simple and clean, even without abs if possible. I usually don’t ride much with music playing but have an iPod for that and enjoy traveling old school studying maps instead of gps. I know it’s not for everybody, but you did a good job and it looks great imo. Would be cool if you could turn the speakers into extra storage compartments too

Very nice craftsmanship, but I'm among those who view it as the answer to a question nobody asked .... simply because I love traveling with some favorite tunes. Music makes me happy and seems to make any highway grind seem a bit shorter.

I made it.

For those saying they would miss the radio, I won't. I use a headset in my helmet and have never even turned the sound up on the radio. I also never used the nav.

I keep my radio turned off, all it displays is the time and I don't care about that either. When I am riding I just like to think about how nice it is and I love listening to the engine. I just finished reading Zen and the art of motorcycle maintanence, no that man had a lot on his mind.
