Everyone is different...gotta get what works for you.
I thought I wanted some noise but turned out that it did not work for me on long rides so went back to stock...love the quiet ride now!
Had to get the Ultimate seat/ back-rest, as I just could not get comfortable on the stock one, (always sliding up onto the tank!).
Did not like the tall shield, so got the Cee Baileys Dragon and am very happy .
Installed a larger brake pedal..., and a chrome clutch lever cover. Just got a new horn as well.
The only other thing I did was had a trunk lining installed by a local upolhstery guy.
Almost 5,000 mi on mine XCT now and I love it more every time I get on it!
Planning a 3,000 mi ride in a few weeks to Montana, (from So Calif)
Cannot wait to get going!!
Congrats on the new bike...you ARE going to love it!
