when i get mine broke in i wanna race that flaming bananna of yours  :hot:  :bigthumbsup:

have cobra pipes now...

as far as what i will do to my bike is hard to say with so little available and whats out there is rediculously priced... prolly will take some time...

depending on the seat i get will make the descision for forward controls... if i can get a seat to push me back a bit they would'nt be needed... being they are quite the expensive item to add these days...

hope to buy a zuki gel seat soon...

looking at the 2000 fuel mapping thing right now but not sure if i need it or not...

windshield is a must for windy / cold weather ... have yet to see anything big enough to cover my needs... you know if you have one on there it should be big enough to do something otherwise leave that pos in the garage... i would only have it on during bad weather...

ummm some sort of bag to set on the back seat or back seat area...

side mount for plate...

maybe change led's...

would really like a ausie style back rest that fits into seat but not part of it just if you needed it that day...

thats the short list ... there are lots of other things if i had unlimited funds  :eek:

De-badged Silver, Kuryakyn ISO grips with stiletto ends. Going for basic bolt-ons, pipes,induction, & PC3. as for appearance I am having the wheels powdercoated black along with the hub and any other parts that might look good black. I am thinking of some black pipes. 8)

Yes I have a quote for $75 a wheel for powdercoating and your responsible for removal and install. I think the dealership will break down your tires for $30 a wheel. You will need the axle tool from Suzuki. I ll be doing this towards the end of June.

Heck yeah you couldn't ask for more bang for the buck right out of the box, in a cruiser of course.

Black, just got her yesterday , 75 miles back from dealer - great ride! My first cruiser after many years of everything else . Really love the bike.....

I am de-badging/stickering/reflectoring now but want grips, mirrors and abbreviated plate bracket in back or maybe a side mounted one. Will get a gel seat, windshield and backrest for the occassional wifey tag along ride.

Want to polish the wheels and chrome the rear diff cover. So far I like the look of the stock pipes and for stockers they sound pretty damn good......always been a performance junkie (why I bought THIS cruiser) so more power wont be far off , though I swore I would try to keep her pretty stock.....yeah right.

Ridding her of the tank seam and adding some nice ghost flames would be nice......

Black, had it a week and two days. pulled the side reflectors off front and back. just mounted my real license plate today. JSD-3M just came in today, service manual is on the way. have worked nearly two weeks straight so I am surprised I pulled off the bike deal in the middle of my mental haze, ain't regretted it. I am actually going to be off one or two days this coming week so I will spend some quality time with the M109R. Going to do a one off rear plate thing, cut the mudflap off and do up some streamlined turn sigs front and back. As soon as they come to market I will order the Power Commander, some kind of dual Hyper charger set up and a 2-1 pipe. I have had other cruisers with 2-2's and while they have the look they don't put down the numbers. Whatever I get for a pipe I will have it ceramic coated black, need to break up this sea of chrome. :bigthumbsup:

I'm signing papers on Sat. on a Silver M... Wife thinks I'm crazy since I had the vtx1300 only for a year, but hard to pass up the sweetness of the M109R!!!!!!!!!!!! Once I get her home, if the weather permits, should be Sat.; I'll take some pics... I don't have the bike home yet and already shopping for pipes..... Might wait until a few more come out and get some reviews. Just wish I could find some sound clips..

Wow, thanks for finding that for me. :beer2: Sounds good... Not as throaty as the VTX1300, but it's hard to get a clear sound on a sound bite. It does give me an idea what it sounds like, which is better than the X 1800 IMO! ;)

Love my Black 109. 1500 + miles. The only "mod" so far are the two small dents on the left side of tank due to the 'kickstand episode"
Otherwise, stock, but as soon as there enough "nickels in the jar" would enjoy a set of cobras. Vavava-Vrooom! Ride Safe from S.A. ;)
