Everyone is different and I fully understand that fact so I can only speak for myself: A lot of the fun and excitement was in the wait for the new bike to arrive aat dealersships, I was like a kid at Christmas waiting for my Fox Oragne bike to hit the ground. That being said, I have enjoyed the shopping and waiting for UPS to show up almost as much when buying accessories. When I recieved an email form Richland Rick saying they were making my fork brace that week and I could expect it in a few days...
Enjoy the experience, that is what a motorcycle is all about.
I concur with Realshelby as well, paying for a windscreen that still isn't right, for me (I'm too tall) of the factory lower fairing when, chances are, I'll buy an aluminum skid plate of much higher quality and serves the purpose in a more effect manner seems the better way.
Lastly, I love tinkering with this thing so you can develop that "bond", like a mother and her newborn child, (okay, maybe that is a bit much) when you actually install the parts and see the instant results. No one has "your" bike even if they are equipped equally because you did it!:mrgreen:
On the other hand, some people hate that crap!
Just my thoughts...
Enjoy your ride and the total package experience to your needs, abilities and desires.
