DG will be next once I fix the windshield I guess.
I will take a side shot for you when I go out today. As for the rack and box, I find the wind noise very minimum, but you need to install a wind fairing like I did to further reduce the wind noise.

Got new wheels, way more lighter than the old one. 18lb vs 48lb for 18inch wheel. It's BBS wheel from an Evo X with brand new Firehawk Indy 500 tires

Other than that, I started working on the turbo build, preparing the engine for removal

That’s in insane weight savings. You’re doing a build thread for the turbo right?
