Change of appearance

So I got this 01 750 with 6k on it. Bought it from an old guy who didn't ride her much. Looks good, I'm just wanting to get rid of the old guy look. Any suggestions?

What look are you thinking about?

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Personally, I like it the way it is. But then again, I'm an old guy.

Looks like a Corbin seat. Big bucks there. The backrest is removable, might be a thing to try.

Perhaps you can be more specific on what you want here.

If you want to get rid of the old guy look, then get rid of the parts that makes it an old guy look in your opinion. Whatever you consider is an old guy look then get replace that piece. If you think the seats or bags make it an old guy look then get rid of that. Its just a matter of perspective. What you consider an old guy look may be considered a regular guy look by others.

Don't take my word for it. I'm just a foolish newbie.
When in doubt, just know that I am only joking around.
