Sound advice!

Welcome to the furums and +3 on ride it before you customize it. There are way too many nice bikes on the dealership lots with all the standard upgrades ( exaust, bags, windshield, intake, tuner, etc) and 300 miles on the OD. Makes me sad Like puppies I'd take them all home and ride them if I could...not that I'd ride puppies mind you

Welcome from the trols of michigan. Unless you have an idea in your minds eye, Don't do anything to it until you ride it a while. Dyna's will tell you what they want and need.
