Comfort, style, performance, visibility?

I seem to do a good mix of all...

How do you do it?

usually determined by $$ + best return in the long run (which is usually a mix of two or more)

I mod based on amount of money per grin factor.

For instance Pipes first Big Grin factor every time. I think I also get hard when I start my bike up now. (don't judge me)

I voted comfort because I have to have a decent suspension and seat to ride. Then I thought about it after reading your posts and I guess I changed the pipes/mufflers on my sportster a couple times before I noticed how shitty the ride was. I changed tins and the style of the bike next. Performance was my last big mod.

Never really modded the jap bikes I owned in the past.

Buell got a little cosmetic work first, but the first $$$ is a rebuilt rear shock. It is already a strong running bike. If anything I would actually like to quiet this exhaust.

Every new bike gets bars and stage 1 right off the bat. Everything else is bling after that. :dthumb:

that's funny shit...coming from a guy who has the same...HID lights....Center Stand...Tank Bag...Hogtunes...LED windshield trim....etc!! as Gas Man!

That shit doesn't bother me anyways....:lol:
I was never one to care about who has the same shit as me on their bike...truck...car...snowmobile...4-wheeler...etc.
people ask where I get the stuff from...I tell them or give them a link...it's all good!

I focus on handling, suspension and braking - tires first, brake pads and lines and then suspension. Really don't need any more power and most people just focus on going faster when they can't handle the power they already have. Plus what good is power if you have no control?

Gas Man

So true Mud... these modern post 2002 sportbikes have more power than the most can handle or maybe even more than the bike it self can handle. So suspension is always a positive thing to upgrade.

Hell even on my HD, I now have done a complete suspension overhaul front & rear. Next year I will do HP.

a cheap upgrade is rider improvement school, msf advanced course or read a book on how to ride better.. fuck all the bling bling pop pop vroom vroom fucking upgrades (although thank you for helping support this shitty economy).. I have a MP upgrade program. You give me your money. I smack you two times across the face. I say a few degrading hurtful words to you. You go cry into your pillow. I go drink beer and bang hookers with your money. Maybe a booty bump or 3. That's right liver lips I said it. You aren't fucking cool without the upgrades and you are still an ass wipe with them. So use my program and it will help build character.
