Thanks all for the contributions to the thread and adding pics.

I’m seeing so many great additions and ideas across the forum. Some seem so smart it makes me wonder why manufacturers don’t offer many as options?

Finally had my 20 Pure delivered yesterday and now that I’ve had some time with it, I’m truly impressed and happy. My first NEW, anything.. and I’m pleased with the choice.

Oooh! Be careful of that! I, and a lot of others, flash the light to say "Go ahead!". That could be a dangerous thing to do!
I appreciate that Ron, but down here in Texas people are much more likely to pull out in front of you if they don’t see you coming. People here tend to interpret flashing lights the way Europeans see it, like Germans on the autobahn. It says, “I’m here and I’m coming around you, be aware”. I’ve stopped literally dozens of people entering traffic dead in their tracks both in broad daylight and especially at night. No one, no one has continued out in front of me as though I were flagging them on. The thought is appreciated Ron and frankly I do prepare to stop very quickly in case they pull out anyway but that’s yet to happen. More often they hit the brakes hard and I see by their expressions as I drive by they know they just averted an accident because they neglected to take a good look first. It’s usually a small smile, a wave and nod or mouthing, “I’m sorry” I hope it’s a wake up call and some other riders benefit from their experience. Again thanks for the thought. StayUpOn2

I'm not sure what my favourite mod is, but I definitely love the Unit Garage exhaust...



And I'm really happy with the newly fitted Sargent pod (unlike others on here, i think it properly suits the lines of the bike)...



I have countless other mods and farkles on the bike, but these are the ones that make a real visual impact.

I purchased Ohlins suspension parts front and rear, Wunderlich Daytona fairing, and a Booster Plug. Only other mod was removing the flapper valve and the steering damper.

Hey, I’m interested in hearing about your first and/ or favorite modification or addition?
Absolute best was putting decent suspension on the bike. But the best bang for the buck and second best overall was putting lower and narrower bars on it - went from agony in my upper back after an hour to riding all day in comfort.
