Next Upgrade ??

Well I haven't posted much here, but decided it was time I started contributing to the forum...so here is my first question.

What would you do to your 2013 RGC next if you had $1,500 to spend.

Current mods:
VH Power Duals
VH Hi Output
High Flow AC
SE255 Cam
SE Tuner
RF Amp and Speakers
12" OEM Monkey Bars

I'm looking for a fun winter project and I'm torn on more to this bike or to buy an old sporty to chop up and rebuild.

Thanks
Geoff

I thought long and hard about that one and even looked at some new wheels. However, I like the stock wheels enough to use them for a few years and then buy some new wheels down the road.

pull the battery then Surround your bike with 1500 beer bottles hummm 1500/90days= @16 beers/day so in about 3 mos and 1 wki to be completely sober you'd be ready to ride, Oh re-calulate as you live in Coloweedo

How about some aesthetic stuff? Custom seat, custom shift linkage, floorboards/shifter lever/brake lever? Powder or chrome forks? I think when people do little things like contrast cut floorboards/shifter it really makes these already awesome bikes even cooler.

Nastybaggers.com makes sweet custom shift linkages. Just email them what you want it to say or look like and in a day or two they email back a rendering. Prices are honest as well.

Its all about the details.
