    Very nice! The Russel seat looks like it is specific for the FZ6R, is it and how much did it run?

    I love the peg idea, I've actually rested my legs on my frame sliders for a second or two to stretch them....

    The windshield just doesn't look right, probably blocks everything in the Sun, but just doesn't look right.

    Seat looks comfy.

    Parts list on those pegs, or custom made? I could see those helping out a lot on long straight trips.
