Wouldn't that have been just as easy as starting this thread?

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.

OK, here we go. I'll be the first one. The throttle lock is in the top along with drilling the pipes for more sound. I also have a 12 v. " cigarrette lighter" to charge GPS on long trips, Highway pegs attached to floorboards.
Thinking of lowering the bike, but no sure yet. the height if fine for me and my saddlebags cover the space between the fender end the tire. 'm gonna try to find a good pic to show some of the mods./

Take care and ride safe.

hey now?!?! i thought someone mentioned there already was one in the disliked mods thread but could never find it... so i'll change this title...

my mods so far... clear lenses from Clear Alternatives make the back end look meaner... kury iso-grips are much more comfortable than the stock ones... vance & hines pipes debaffled -- like the look of some of the fuggin ones better though....

upgrades within the next week: side mount curved kury plate, small bullet lights -- to remove the back bracket for a cleaner look...

wanted upgrades: solo seat, engine guard, highway pegs a nice looking tach for the custom?!?!

1. Will start with TOP 3 that should be consider first mods.
Seat, Risers & Windshield

2. Then Performance:
Exhaust, Intake & Fuel Management

3. Then everything else:
Light Bar, Integrated Tail Light, Sissybar W/Rack, Throattle Lock, Hard Saddle Bags & Trunk (for long trips), OEM Gel Touring Style Seat (2up), Willie & Max Solo Seat (when solo), Avon 200/70/15 (rear) & 90/90/21 Metzler (front), Handlebar Tool Bag , Grips, Mirrors & VN900 Classic Rear Fender swap.

Mods to come soon:
Power outlet
Horn
ScootWorks front pulley. Had it but mine came defective so took it off do to numerous belt issues but will like to give it another shot soon. Difference was minimal just using the front but will try to do both this time.

Looks like I'm running out of options now...

Ah, let me see here.

Cobra Crash Bar, I have had crash bars save me once on another bike and won't ride one again without them.

Kury Iso Grips are great, V&H Pipes sound pretty good. windshield and bags.

Need to do, Get a Gel insert put in the seats. There's a local auto upholstery shop around here that does them.

my favorite is the Russell Daylong seat.. I have had a lot of other great bling on my rides but this one makes it possible to use all the rest...
