Default First Mod ?

Just curious on what the very first mod you add/do to a new bike? I have a new one coming and will go led tail lights, exhaust (slip ons), shocks and then the canvas is wide open.

Can't go wrong w/added illumination...I swapped headlight and signals w/LED's. Next was Stage-1, but had to save some $$$.

Ciro filler lights for added visibility on my Limited. Brake/Turn/Running lights and easy to install.

Always: 1) remove fork reflectors 2) remove heel shifter 3) remove all stupid warning stickers. Addition through subtraction.
