Oh my you guys are in deep. I thought I was bad because I'll put off buying shoes, but when it comes to the bike it's like now.  I got a habit to support here".    But most of you guys here are are insane it appears. God bless your hearts. KJ

If you ever get a chance to look back, the question is irrelevant if it made you ride more and you were happy doing it.  :beerchug:

Isn't that true. Upon reflection, I think I spent way too much after the initial purchase on any bike I liked.  :beerchug:

Muzzy Lowering Links.
McCruise Cruise Control unit.
Givi 55ltr rear case.
Aluminum Mounting Plate for Givi 55 case.
Eye bolts added to Above plate.
Drivers Backrest installed.
Front and rear Fender Extenders.
USA made Dunlop Q3 tires.
Handlebar Risers and Wedges.
2 sets of Grab-On Grips.
2008 Tank Storage case to replace the stock cover.
Ram Mount to hold Garmin etc. with aluminum spacers.
Power switch to keep bluetooth transmitter and XM on at gas stops.
Cal-Sci Tall Windscreen.
XM antenna which stays on the bike.
Cradle to hold Garmin and power cord.
Canyon Cages – Chrome.
Different foot pegs.
Highway foot rests.
HMPV Bar Ends.

Yes the CC and drivers backrest make this my go to bike most of the time.
So I have put more miles on my C14 faster than any other bike I have owned to date.  :great:
Then again I also farkled this bike more then any other and I farkled all of them some.

Other than some aux lights, eventually, I'm good there.

I was married back then and didn't dare keep track so I could honestly say, "don't know, not that much."
