Rotated handle bar forward for more comfort (it's nearly perpandicular to the ground)
moved controls on the handle bar 5/8ths" inboard to accomodate progrip enduro grips &
Maier aluminum handguards and plastic brush deflectors.
{these fixes of the uncomfortable positioning of the bar/controls and tiny OEM grips made the bike suitable as a daily rider. Nearly everything else I've done is fluff}
Dual star windshield. Makes travel between 55 and 75 mph much more comfortable.
Dual star heatshield.
Moved the license plate up 6"
Fieldsheer tank bag w/raincover (been through much rain back in Jan/feb/march and never had any wet gear inside)
Wolfman Expedition Large Rear Bag
Alaska Leather seat mat (will try it tomorrow, but works great on easy chair)
[after900 miles in two days the stock seat doesn't cut it anymore]
pulled off the decals on the rad guards, will do the tank and others later.
That's all I can think of. I'm not buying another thing until I've got another 5k on my bike. Plus I think prices will go down once it gets cold. It might just be me but I think once May rolled around, everybody marked up their prices 10%.
