New rider checking in

Just checking in. I'm new to riding and picked up a '10 V-Star Classic 650 last month. I've put a little over 500 miles on it so far (2,222.2 total miles...lol) and I'm thoroughly enjoying myself.

I added a backrest w/carrier so that I can tote a bag around (good for around town trips/shopping). Other than that, I don't think I'll be doing anything to it in the near future.

I installed a clevver (improved low speed maneuvering) a few weeks ago and ZIV forward controls today (plenty of extra leg room). I'm liking my toy.
