figured I'd start one of these up to keep track of stuff.

Got mine on 8/23/2013. Received my Tyga package the same day and pretty much installed everything.

Goodies included. full set white plastics and various cnc parts that tyga carried, which are actually made by a Thai company called Bikers. All of them are pretty top notch and the red anodize on them matches, which was a plus for me.
clutch adjuster, clutch and brake levers, oil inspection caps, steering stem nut, rear brake and caliper clamps.

I'll take some better photos later during the week.

first few are when i first got it home

It's not bad, we're slow so it's really no big deal for them to pass us in a short straight.

sure do, here they are. Thanks for the comments. Waiting on more goodies as we speak, got the fender installed in a couple minutes the same day, but failed to get a photo. Part is top notch quality, my clear on the CF was a little dull though, so i pulled out the rotary buffer with some swirl remover and gave it a nice buff job.

Oh my! The white looks delicious. How were you guys lucky enough to get all 3 at the same time??!?!!? Lucky man, lucky. Totally awesome to have someone to cruise with. Can't wait to see more mods. Yours is coming along really well. Love it!

thanks ! my brother and i put deposits down at Honda of Glendale and my other two friends put deposits down at Whittier Fun Center. We all managed to get $3800 OTD too, Glendale set the bar then Whittier price matched for us. This was 3-4 months ago though.

Wow those are great deals...I'm glad to hear not everyone in CA is getting totally ripped off. just slightly compared to other states.

I'm back for vacation until the end of Sept. I'll probably hit up a few rides and shows, like Joe's Mini Reunion. Hopefully, I'll catch you at a red light around the SGV!

I was actually 3rd on the list at Honda of Glendale. Glad you guys were the first 2.

Got the bike back from Steady Garage for my custom stainless exhaust today, sounds pretty awesome. Just need to make a little video tomorrow for everyone.

Got my frame/case sliders installed while I was waiting for them to finish my brothers bike and had them help me mount up my 120/80/12 Dunlop TT92's Front and Rear. Clearance with my Tyga Monster CF front fender is mere millimeters, but goddamn does it look good. Whole bike is 10mm taller around around due to bumping the aspect from 70 to 80. Haven't been able to push the bike much with the tires yet, Will get somemore better photos tomorrow. My Grom has that mean motard look now with these badboys though.
