I’m addressing this specifically to the SVTC/Eluder riders. Mostly cuz these bikes are so new there’s not a lot of aftermarket stuff out there yet.
What have you done to customize your ride and make it uniquely yours? Post some pics, share some ideas to help get others creativity flowing!!
Those of us who own these bikes love em, so let’s FLAUNT em a bit eh?!

That being said, I’ve recently had my lower saddlebag panels wrapped to match my seat. The last thing to get wrapped (gonna be tricky) is the gauge console. Yes, I’ll post pics when done.

On my Eluder: Grip Puppies foam hand grips, clear coat wrapping on all front facing panels, taller windshield. Soon adding a Rox handlebar extension.

How will I know when I get there if I don't know where I'm going?

Looks like it also goes with the design on the trailer. I think its a nice touch.

Sounds really nice @RonK ! I know about using the clear coat & what the risers and windshield are... what are “Grip Puppies”? I don’t know much about the Eluders, but does that affect your heated grips?
Thanks for more info.
See... this is exactly what I’m talking about. No one person has all the inside track on what can be done with these bikes, so sharing this info benefits ALL owners!

I found a guy in a another forum who has custom made a set of black anodized brackets that mount at the front fender bolts. They’re for putting a set of bright LED torpedo lights which tie into your fog lights for the “on”. This addresses an issue when riding at night through corners.
The bikes headlights are GREAT for going straight, but since the fairing doesn’t turn... no light shines through the corner ahead. This will have light that turns with the forks to shine into the corner.

Chief, you're going to have to learn to use Google. It's you friend!

https://www.amazon.com/s?k=grip+pupp...l_9e6536l9sz_e

Amazon may not be the best place to purchase Grip Puppies currently, lots of sites have them. They're foam covers to make grips thicker for bigger hands while also softening the grip. Don't know if they affect heated grips, I don't think so, but I don't have heated anyway (I don't think).

I really wish you guys would stop posting all the pics of the Eluder and talking about how great they are. I am 6 months from being debt free and 1 years from retirement. I do not need to go into debt for another motorcycle. It's like ya'll want it to happen or something.

You NEED a retirement present!
Sounds like you already have your eye on just what you need! You only get ONE go around, so make it a good one!
