Hey, from the Sierra Foothills of California

Just got my new 2019 CB on Saturday. Loving it so far. Eager to find out the best accessories from everyone...top box, taller windscreen, etc.

Hi from Kent in the UK!  :002: I've just collected my 'X' today, although it is only a 2018, I think a top box is high on my list of extras so I'll be interested to see what the other members suggest.

Yeah...I definitely need a top box, but there are dozens to pick from, and they are all pretty pricey. I actually thought about strapping a milk crate to it, but pretty quickly dismissed that idea....incredibly affordable, but So ugly.  Coupled with the fact that you need to spend more than $100 on the rack, then another few hundred on the case...that's a fair investment in just one accessory.  I'm also looking into a mod that will decrease the windscreen buffeting. I'll create a post and see what everyone thinks about a cheap solution I saw on YouTube.  The other thing that could be handy is the cover for hand grips, to keep the cold and wind off.
