I'll be searching through the site for some input on accessories. The things I am most interested in are:
-foot peg lowering kit
I'm trying to outfit the bike to fit my 6'-2 height.
Thanks for any input you may have.
Hey, Bruce, congrats on your new ride and welcome to the forum. Check out the "Ergonomics" forum too, there are lots of threads about various products for making the bike more comfortable for the particular owner. And as soon as you decide you are going to get a particular item, check out the Classified forum, you may just see it there. For myself, I bought a used BakUp backrest and installed it this spring. I have not gone on a long trip with it yet, so I don't know if it will be useful (I too have back problems, and am 6'4"). I have not done anything with the stock pegs, and have not added a forward footrest, but there is a ton of information on the different choices - lowered floorboards (made by a forum member), J-Pegs (2 sizes), Highway Ottomans, Mik-O-Pegs; just do a search and you will have more info than you can read. Bags can be very useful, and there are several makers who designed bags to fit the side cases and top case - BMW (pricey, as always), Kathy's Bags, Helen TwoWheels, and probably others.
Do give a thought to an HID light (low beam or combo low/high). There is a group sale going on right now, I believe, so you will get a good price and you will be blown away by the improvement. Good luck, have fun buying, and remember that there is a 12-Step program available when you get addicted.
