Audio
Stage II 6.5 Boom Audio. It was already installed when I bought the bike. It's a motorcycle. It's only ever going to sound so good. My user ID is hifiho. HIgh Fidelity wHOre. It's kinda been my gig for 40 years. High fidelity can not be achieved in an open space, given the constraints of a fairing, bags, engine noise, traffic, road noise, etc. Louder is not always better.

A "near field" monitor system would be best-suited for this application, but I prefer to concentrate on the road and the ride.

I've got $70k worth of motorcycle in my garage. My home theater and critical listening systems exceed that.
Suspension
Stock. I've done a 900 mile day with little-to-no fatigue. If I had started earlier, I could have done another 200 easy. Don't like riding in the dark when I don't know the roads. That being said- My rear suspension is pretty stiff. And while I'm swapping to chrome sliders on the front, I'm thinking about swapping internals.
Wheel and Tire
Factory "Enforcer" wheels and stock tires. Powdercoated gloss black, and dark grey 2-tone. The flash from the camera exaggerates the contrast. The grey isn't quite THAT light.
