I don't have any tattoos. (Bear with me, it's relevant.) When my many friends with tattoos have asked why I don't have any I tell them that every time I have extra cash to throw around, I have to decide between a tattoo or something I want for my bike. The bike always wins. I do own two guns, but the bike still wins most of the time.

When I said 'gun-nut', I didn't mean to imply some gun-crazy asshole; I meant, and probably should have said, gun enthusiast or hobbyist. Some people call me a bike nut or a an RC nut. That's what I was trying to imply.

Do you need a new gun or want a new gun? Do you need new bars or want new bars? Decide which is a want and which is a need then go from there.

I was in the same position earlier this year...Do I get that SR40 I've been thinking about or all the extras I've been wanting for the XC?
I asked myself what of the two am I going to get the most enjoyment and use out of? For me it was the accessories.

Get the gun if that is what you really want. I am one of those gun nuts and have passed on doing something to my XR a few times now because of a new gun I would rather have. Just added my first 1911 to my collection and I could have easily done cams, filter, and pcv with what the gun cost.

Well, I guess I don't NEED either so they are both a want. The new pistol (compact Glock 43) would be my daily carry to replace my Glock 31 when Im not on duty. I like the look of the bars, the only thing that I'm not sure of is how well I would like long rides with the taller bars. Since I'm on the taller side the stock bars are a little low for my liking.
