Everybody's needs are different--my first farkle was a thicker seat to improve (raise) the seat height. Also added Buell footpegs to give more legroom.

Try it stock for awhile, and you'll eventually see a need for some kind of improvement. Right out of the box it ain't bad.

Congratulations on your new bike! :thumbup: One of the best things about the Stroms is the availability of accessories. Since each rider is so different, ride your bike for a few weeks and let your particular needs dictate your purchases.

One of the many good things about all the rides we used to have was everybody got to see all the different additions folks had. If somebody sets a ride, show up and you'll get some good ideas.

These posts always surprise me. I would think luggage of some sort. I've never bought a custom seat and haven't used a center stand in over 300,000 miles. Everybody's got unique preferences.:)

Howdy!

Hello all, Just picked up my new Vee. First farkle recommendations?
I vote for the center stand. Had mine put on before I took it home. Next was a top case because as most of your gents know, we ladies like to carry lots of stuff.
My short arms ached for some up and back bar risers. These added the greatest comfort for me but the MadStad windshield bracket comes in a close second. No surprise that my favorite addition was the most expensive, my Jesse Odyssey II bags. http://www.jesseluggage.com/odysseyII.html Now I can travel and do the weekly shopping as well.
Some type of crash bars are kind of a Murphy’s law shield. Put mine on the first week and so far they have worked J
I do some dirt road riding every day and yes the stock tires are a bit slick but not bad enough to throw away perfectly good rubber. When they needed replacing I was happy to go with Metezler Tourance which as slightly better in sand and pretty nice on pavement. I’m thinking of trying the Michelin Anakee next.

Good choices Winnie. Follow Winnie's lead as she really know her stuff and one heck of a rider.
