    Congrats on the new bike. Helibar risers and a flash were the first two things I did followed by Givi pannier racks. The OEM winglets help with wind protection and the bumper mod flattens the seat.

    Lots to search on. Gen 1 is 2013 and older with CCT gotcha. Gen 2 get cruise, no gotchas and a few refinements generally considered worth the $. Torque is already down low, the tune gets rid of restrictions in first 3 gears that supposedly makes a big difference.

    A flash alone will make it rip, but for max power add an Arrow decat header as well. The muffler itself doesn't make a big difference.

    Got a 2019 on the 17th. 650 miles. Dealer apparently can't get me in for a 600 mile til Friday. Make that an 800 mile service?

    I put the seat back to the high position. Seat is a little soft, but I personally don't mind the slope or anything. Engine bars coming this week. Just in time for the service, I guess I wont install those as soon as they come. Hard bags were backordered. Who would have thought touring bags would be in short supply when we're not supposed to be traveling much.


    Very glad I got the ES. Set it on old Caddy between here and wherever, then its just 2 button pushes to keep it from wallowing in the turns.

    Had some time off last week. About a 1000 miles of various riding in Northern NM, and a brew tour with my neighbor on his Roadking.

    @Sid Post , what part of TX are you in? If you're in the Austin area you're welcome to ride mine -- it's been flashed (and happens to be for sale - https://advrider.com/f/threads/2017...full-bumot-luggage-and-more-austin-tx.1466952 ).

    Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

    I don't know but, it looks more like a nice shed to me!

    Nice stone buildings like that are beautiful to me. What part of the world is that?

    At least the rain washed some of the bugs off from last week.
