    What to do = Ride it
    What not to do = Not ride it

    The bike is stellar right out of the box

    The KTM heated Grips are nice
    Wings Exhaust = V twin sweet sound
    KTM Large Bags if you tour on it

    Did a 2700 mile trip on it last Sept upstate NY down to maggie Valley:clap:clap

    Also added Wings exhaust, some carbon fiber and the sumpguard. But it is great (almost perfect) straight from the crate.:clap
