If it wasn't for my aching neck, shoulder, and knees, I would have one of these, power and handling! :046:

Here is my latest mod, an actual rear caliper guard that has lasted. Old fender off a Ulysses, cut, drilled and cable tied to the center stand. You can see the remnant of the Paul rear caliper guard that had snapped off within a hundred miles or so, unfortunately not without scratching up the rear rim first. So what is left of that old guard has cost quite a bit and I tell the story about everytime someone asks about it. My caliper guard you can see how much road grit is on it and how clean the caliper is so it has saved me from having to change my brake pads as well as the rear disk from much grinding every day as that is my driveway.  When riding 2 up it did scrape the ground initially until it ground down on the pavement. Also when leaning into a right turn it used to scrape so now it is fully customized to my bike and riding style

The best mod I did was to undo the previous owners mods. Except the heated grips, I left them on.

 My best would be the lower footpegs. Compromises cornering a little but way easier on my creaky knees. I don't ride as fast as I once did so comfort has become more important than trying to wring a few extra ponies out of a bike that makes 114 already...

Yes, I'm afraid I'm becoming an old fart these days... :180:

"Which way you going?" they asked.
After some thought, I replied, "Doesn't matter, as long as I'm going."
