    Good one.

    I would look at the front fender extender, foam slip over grips, bigger foot pegs like Pivot Pegz, if you are going on to a fair bit of dirt then a SW Motech bash plate, better tyres like MT60. Adjustable levers make a good difference to the hand controls. A hi powered approved headlight bulb.

    Where did you buy yours?

    I just committed to buy a 2014, in black, too.

    Hully Gully in London, I bought a 2014 Demo, so I qualified for the Honda financing that they have now.
