    Here's my pride and joy on 2 wheels, alongside a long lost cousin currently undergoing a body transformation! Mine looks to be fairly stock standard with a near perfect body (the Daytona, that is, haha). I've had it for 6 months and pretty much settled into it now. No major mods planned. I'm mainly focused on maintenance. But I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts, in keeping with overall look and feel.I am contemplating a suspension adjustment, LED indicators, a rear cowl and rim stickers! Oh, and a major mod for me is an advanced cornering course. Also need to do a photoshoot for some better pics. Daytona.JPG

    @G-relk for the other one

    Suspension adjustment is one thing - easy enough to twiddle away a bit at home. Sat sag first, then twiddle whatever other settings you have according to what stuff you're not so happy with (suspension setup is a bit like marriage counselling - start with treating the symptoms of what's wrong, and get a broader picture of how that fits together later on).

    A revalve and/or respring can totally be worth it though - adjusters only go so far, and that can be a great way to tune out various characteristics you just aren't happy with.

    My single seat cowl will be for sale once I've got the ducati tail mounted, and has your name written on it.

    Your bike is really tidy (especially compared to mine), and will look really nice with those upgrades you've listed. As stated the other week, I'm more than happy to volunteer some time to go over the basics with you. It's a pretty easy bike to work on, pretty well everything is easy to get to for regular maintenance stuff.
