I'm looking on my chalkboard in my garage where I list all the things I want to fix/mod/buy for the next season. I usually make this list after I tuck the bike away, and realize its January already......and I've done nothing, well, except buy a new pair of boots

I'm thinking a new heated liner, a vest this time, something thinner than my Gerbings jacket which doesn't fit all that well under my new tighter jacket. Most likely will go hybrid hard wire + battery powered.

Also wanting to get a second helmet, a flip up specifically. Heard Shoei is coming out with a new one.

What's on your list?

Reading your list is on my list.

I got new boots at the end of the season. I'd like a new two-piece suit this year. I also have some new tires to mount up before the season really starts.

sena kit, rearsets, ss lines, new pads, lose the passenger peg and holders for single r&g exhaust holder, perhaps lower my tripletree 5mm, maybe a newsuit? lithium battery? Not sure how much of that I will do, but that is the pencilled in list on my desk.

Don't mount that plate yet ....... there is a 37% chance you'll sell the bike by May 2.

I'm looking at installing an electronic cruise control on the VFR, heated grips or the OEM windblockers, changing all fluids and if I get really ambitious; cat removal and dyno tuning.

Those 90 degree valve stems would be nice as well. I should pick up a set for when I do next tire change. If I go for a new helmet, it will be the Neotec for sure. I already own one and it's been super comfortable for the past 3 years.

Say what?! pics!
"Tiddler-middleweight-gentleman's express" bike but a tad more stable than the R3 was at "fun" speeds.

But hey, Sikorsky is sadly correct - I'm waiting before I book my service appointment in for the plate install until at least the end of March in case this crow see's something shinier elsewhere. :)

....and first time using a Comm unit so I'm a little worried I won't like it - I've always been one to point fingers at those with ear buds in or a gaggle of riders riding at a snails pace but everyone looks like their Italian with all the hand gestures from yakkin' away to each other.

Definitely the heated grips over the wind blockers. The OE ones are nice and didn't need any hair torn out to install.
