My wish list

- 21 in front, 19 rear would get the ground clearance up
- Move the front fender up an inch or two
- Have an option for spokes for those that think it is needed
- A larger tank wouldn't hurt
- Move the oil filter someplace else
- Switchable ABS
- Quality paint
- Change the way the foot pegs mount so they don't break every time the bike tips over.
