The honda handguards are really not worth much, have them on my wifes bike. They will block wind but thats it. Go with bark busters or acerbis, they will protect your hands and your levers. I like the honda rear rack. Best mods? Same with any street legal dual sport......uncork it. Open up the airbox and get a pipe. I like the FMF Q4 but its pretty spendy. Sounds good on the bike and not too loud. But, even if you can't put the money into mods, it's a great bike right out of the box. Enjoy!
