Top 3 SEXY Strom Improvements

Some one else posted this question, but left "sexy" out.

So I'm asking what is your sexiest, ie. makes your ride look better, improvements that you've done. Most of us would agree a center stand is a great improvement but it's got no pizzazz, no "wow" factor.

What's something you've added to your bike that you think looks great, or even gets others to comment on?

That being said, I don't have much to add because I'm looking for stuff like this.....I might say my aluminum Kappa side cases and Givi top case if pressed;

“Me”

Oops, I was probably supposed to say “my wife”.

I try to only add functional farkles. That being said, I like the look of my Givi crash bars and pannier brackets. I bought the quick release brackets But I never take them off because I like how they look. I also think the tread pattern on my mitas e07s adds to the aggressive look of the bike.

Dirt from Ky. to Alaska and loaded down with camp gear makes them look about right!

A set of nice big expensive bright Denali or other top brand of LED's. ;-)

Hand-guards look good as well and a custom winged (RDL or TA) saddle if you are spending...

I just looked it up in Webster's, the definition of oxymoron is "Sexy V-Strom".
