Reading that list, I realize I have spent WAY more in Farkles than I realize.  :-\

I could EASILY double or triple that $$$ total.  :beerchug:

Ironically, when I bought this bike, i wasn't going to add much to it.  Silly boy.  :rotflmao:

Inside of the first week of ownership and I'm at $313:

AST 2" risers - $75
Ram Mount ball - $20
California Scientific XL touring windshield - $200
Grip Puppies - $18

The only other thing I'll need in the short term is the right mounting bracket for my Givi Monokey 46. Once that's on I'll be good to go for a while.

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.
Blind Spot Mirrors.
Radiator Grill Cover.
Tank Spec Protectors.

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.

WAY more $$$ than I'll ever admit here. Probably as much or more than I paid for the bike. Things like this tend to reach the wife eventually and I have no desire to end my life yet.


Ohlins, front and rear
Carbon Fiber front wheel w/ceramic bearings
That's all I'll admit to for now.

wWOW! I wouldn't have to wory about the fact I was broke the wife would have killed me :)) she watches too close after build a Duramax. I get the third degree if she sees a UPS truck within three miles of the house. :-[ I have managed a set of fairing extenders, a tank bag, an X~grip cellphone holder, a hugger rear fender and front fender extension. Oh crap it has been nice knowing you guys. :rotflmao:

Only about 1000. Evo ECU/Sgt seat/Slip on/Cal Sci medium/CeeBailey UDT+/horn

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

Kinda low compared to previous bikes and its stable-mate.

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