    Well if this is a first bike then let me be the first to recommend something besides a chopper. You really need to learn how to ride before trying to ride something with altered frame geometry and/or altered suspension. That steepens your learning curve just as badly as riding a super sport or an uber-heavy beast would.

    And this is coming from someone who has no qualms with chopper conversions.

    Spammer handled...

    But still a great checklist and worthy of a bump!

    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

    Just bought a 500F (modified to naked, except for the front faring). The stuff I found in this thread lowered the asking price about 500 bucks. Thanks guys!
