NVery nice bike

I saw a white one in a dealer down the road and it looks amazing...just like yours. Very nice choice. Does the center stand give you any problems?

Leather option

Take a look at Foxcreek leather. They make really nice jackets in all kinds of sizes. Klim is good too. I am 6'2" , 245 with 36 sleeve and 50 chest and Klim XL fits perfect.

I am good most days right now

Read the book. I know its a PIA, but you will learn a lot about your bike. Try to set up your suspension at a shop for your weight and ridding style.

Mine did the same thing until its first service. Everything smoothed out after that. It still wants to shake a little under 3k, but not like before.
