Welcome to the 4M Ricky. How's the weather in Tampa these day?. I was south of there in Venice in April and it was awesome. Imagine the heat has set in for the summer season. Ride safe!!

To be completely honest...

The weather down here has been HORRIBLE for at least several weeks now. Days with lots of sunshine are far and few in between :-(. Every few years Florida has one of those rainy, rainy summers, and I picked one of them to purchase my new bike, lol!

I am definitely interested in mods after I break the bike in! I want to start with the obvious exhaust / intake, but as for purchasing recommendations I am completely open to suggestions. Any advice is appreciated!

Also, is a fairing recommended?

Great bike - I fell in love with it when I saw the paint and subtle blacked out spots. Saving my pennies to trade up from the 650 I bought in the meantime.

For mods I plan to do what this guy did
