Hello there ladies and gent. I just acquired a new to me 2009 C14 with 19k miles on it so here I am.
Living in Orange county NY (plenty of good riding here)
Looking forward to meeting and getting to know people and getting advice since I'm new to this riding style
Currently I'm on a BMW S1000RR and a race Kwiqasfuki zx6r.

First couple of questions if I may as are:
Recommended accessories for this bike, ECU flash (I hear "Steve" is well respected) and Auxiliary lights.
Thanks in advanced!

Welcome. Change of pace from your others rides! I'm also a NOOB so I have no advice other than your first accessory you already have, a COG membership.

Recommended accessories for this bike,
Now that's a loaded question! Typically a good seat like a Russell, handlebar risers and lower footpegs are first. Then the sky is the limit.

ECU flash (I hear "Steve" is well respected)
Yes
Currently I'm on a BMW S1000RR
I have a friend with a 2020 M model. I've done some reading and YouTube watching on these things and they are awesome.

I put 175,000 on my first 08 before it was rear ended and totaled. I bought a replacement 08 with 50,000 on it and have 112,000 on it now. Steve's flash transformed it and it's my favorite of the 5 bikes I own including a BMW R1200RT and a Ducati Multistrada. The Duc and Beemer are sweet machines but the Concours' power is addicting.

Can someone direct me to Steve's website
The seat is good, but I feel like I need some more of a back support, any recommendations?
