Thanks for the Concours section guys. The best bike I have ever owned for the money. It does almost everything very well. 50K on mine and only valve adjustments and a speedo cable.

Lots out there to do. visit one of the dedicated Concours sites. I switched the can because the stock looked liked a potato launcher and was too quiet. I upgraded the windscreen, 1.5" bar risers, rad guard, tank protector, top case for additional storage, and a heck of a lot of miles. Planning this years trip. Took a 7 day 3K mile trip last year sleeping only in the tent I brought and eating the food from my pack...i stopped for gas, water, and beer at night...in that order...hope you are enjoying your bike!
cheers,
scott

....you can put a turbo on one, that's a riot right there. :) GoPro hilarity will ensue.

The bike likes the usual exhaust & mapping, and it responds very well to removing the secondaries and mapping to suit. Good tires make it about twice as much fun on top of that. I'm used to touring on a sportsbike, so I never really did any comfort/creature mods other than a mount for my wideband LCD screen (you could put a GPS or some such in it's place). Awesome machine so far. :)
