Dan, it already has; NAV V, Illium guards with foot rest, Illium side stand enlarger, top case brake light, ADMORE LED extra brake light with directional , RKA bag lines, RKA 13L tank bag, Aeroflow wings, Aeroflow mini-wings, Clearwater Erica's, PDM60, reflective taping on the top case and paniers side and rear, Stebel Nautilus Horn, InterPhone 5, Dowco cover....this is all that I can think of!
It took me 8 years to get my LT the way I wanted it, it ain't gonna take 8 years to trick out the GTL!!!!!

The only thing about the NAV V is the fact that I cannot see the bottom part of the screen where it shows your speed, is there a solution for this?

Congrats on the New to you GTL

For the Nav V you need the newer type GPS shroud. It has a larger opening to fit the larger Nav V. Get it from Pandora's for about $50.

See part number 2

Wheelies?

Congratulations, Brett. Holy Shnikies, man, you got back in the game big time. I'm very happy for you and Mrs. Brett. OK, and a little envious. Love the GTL...

Does the rear seat have the new/improved handles? If not, those can be replaced, too.

Final question: how long before that grin wears off?

Howard, I can tell you that I am 1 month shy of 3 years into owning my GTL & the grin is still there every time I throw a leg over the seat.

Does the grin ever go away? NOT!

Come to think about, I think everytime I mounted the LT I was grinning!

Not sure about the handles, I can blame you for the empty pocketbook, those Erica's are awesome, and expensive!

'Bout time, Stumpie! Now maybe you can actually keep up with me, or at least TRY.

All joking aside, it looks great boss. CONGRATS!

Congrats Brett, well done. You were very patient in your pursuit and it looks like you got what you wanted. Looks great.

BTW I know Lee is looking so I want you guys to know that my wife and I ate at the Pisgah Inn yesterday. Very good, as usual.
