Hey Rick... welcome to the forum. There's a lot of good information on this site. The cost of the CB is low enough that folks have some spare money to add accessories, and there are good writeups on how to add them. Personally, I've put on Givi engine guards as well as Shad 23 liter side cases. The dealer installed a center stand for me before I took delivery. I also swapped out the standard windscreen for a California Scientific windscreen. I've found these items make the bike very versatile and I've done some really long rides with it as a result.

Welcome Rick. I think you're gonna like this bike..  It's good off the dealer floor and you can make it SO much better without a lot of $$ or skill. Believe me, I have neither.

Cheers
Just damn happy to be here...

Hi Rick Welcome and have lots of Good Safe Riding - I have Givi engine bars but thats because they were on my bike when I bought it - I also prefer Soft panniers as luggage - I know about pros and cons of soft V hard luggage but I prefer soft and a Large topbox in which to secure my helmet when stopped and mooching around or whatever.
Well thats my version - am sure more will follow!!!

Welcome and greetings from Flanders..
Ed.Nice setup I'm not looking to carry so much luggage but like the idea of protecting the rear end with soft luggage.
