    I usually don't do much to them, I just like to ride. My Suzuki stayed stock and my Concours stayed mostly stock. I added comfort amenities but to me adding performance to a bike that already has great performance is like throwing money away. I'd rather spend $600 on a trip than on an exhaust.

    Yeah but even comfort mods are still mods.

    It drives me crazy that my mirrors turn with the handle bars. I'm used to them being stationary.
    I scraped the pegs pretty good today, once on a left turn and once on a right. I now know the limits of my lean.
