Came across a thread on SVrider.com that I thought would be awesome. They have it as a sticky.


It's basically people's bikes with a small write up of the mods. It's an awesome visual reference with a list of the mods right there. And if you adhere to the rules of the thread it would be an extremely useful reference. Here are the rules to the thread.

The Rules:
1. Post 1 picture per bike only,
2. small write up of what the bike is and mods
3. Do NOT reply in this thread, JUST PICTURES (replies will be deleted or moved to http://www.ducatimonster.org/smf/index.php?topic=66244.0 without comment or notice)
4. Contact bike owners via PM with questions

Please upload and link to your picture. Do not attach it. If you attach a picture of your bike, it will eventually turn into a red X. Here's a How-To for uploading pics.

[MM edit: I created a folder in the Gallery area for your bike pix for this thread:]
