Carbon Fever - How bad do you have it?

Just wondering who else keeps dropping by the dealer and adding carbon! A, getting totally addicted. So far have the rear mudguard (front came with S ABS), the heel guards, shock absorber cover and the ignition switch cover. Have to say the ignition switch cover looks really cool and you see it as you ride!

Dealer showed me the new carbon Arai Ducati helmet in a catalog today, even I reckon that is too far (and at $4000 just a bit pricey!)

What have you all done so far?

Strange this time. I have spent so much money on Carbon for my hayabusa and Diavel but on this bike, I hate to say it is almost perfect. I am not even in a rush for an exhaust.

I totally agree with you.....Exotic vehicles never need anything really......but to each his own.

I had no intention of getting anything carbon when I ordered the bike, however it is easier to say the only carbon items I don't have is wheels! I have phoned the dealer at least 4 times and ordered extra carbon items to be put on "Eva". Wife has baby girl on the 15th and I pick up Eva 2 weeks later! Feels like a life time of waiting!

I only went nuts on one bike I owned it was a 1999 996S, I threw a boatload of money at it, carbon like mad, mag marchesinis, etc etc.

Never will do that again

I take it you never took part in my poll here? I am a carbon junkie and did you know they are making an Arai without the Ducati stripe for ALOT less? Even Bell has an all carbon nice looking helmet I can get a sweet deal on!
And with or without ya, my carbon MUST be the wet, glossy, dark mirror look instead of nasty matte finish! LOL (inside joke)

I bought one of these full carbon helmets $500 It's the Nexx 1R carbon. Only lighter helmet out there is the shark.
