Json's Blober 500 facelift completed

Ok so punny thread name aside, my bike isn't named yet.

Anyways, yesterday my buddy and I finished installing all new lighting and new grips. Figured I'd post the mod progress so far. I have other projects in mind but these were the top priority ones because I thought the stock lighting on this bike was frankly disgusting (in my opinion, to each their own), and the stock grips were functional, but not pretty. So here's some shots of my Rebel as it sits at home right now.

Projects Done:
(+) Front Torpedo turn signals
(+) Rear Torpedo turn signals
(+) LED Halo headlight (RGB ring currently set to red though it looks a little pink in the images)
(+) Grips
(+) Single small side-bag (for now, second one coming later)

They're basically the grip I wish came on the bike in the first place. I have small hands, I'm only 5'7" so I'm a small guy and I love them. They're super comfy and the big knobs really help with grip.

headlight ring looks awesome. i won't ask if that's legal or not (red color-not the ring in general)

I was wondering the same thing. So far haven't been pulled over for it. If I do, I will just play the ignorant card and go from there. What's actually cool though is the red isn't very visible when looking into the light. Only from the side is the color really visible. So unless someone can find/quote the law that says we can't use red on this area, I'll leave it for now because it's definitely the best looking color. The headlight has a bluetooth control box which I tucked into the headlight bucket. if I do get pulled over, I just whip out my phone and change it right there. It's full RGB so you can pick whatever color you want.

Where are you located?

Most, if not all, states have laws that you can't have any red lights on the front of your vehicle or any white lights on the rear (excluding reverse lights and license plate lights, of course).
