Wow, that is gorgeous. I would be hard put to decide between that color and the Terra Cotta I could get (fairly short timeline to order) - clearly well taken care of. Not sure it does not look as good as mine brand new :x

Nothing that machine needs now other than you learning to handle it (not sure drive applies!)

Also a help to know your location.

Any mod or upgrade ideas would be welcome.
I also like to tinker and modify bikes and I had great plans when I bought my Patrol, but 1.5 years later I haven't done anything but routine maintenance. So my advice is to just ride, and maybe some day you'll find something to modify.

The only thing I would do is add a windshield. If you are riding solo, take down the sidecar windshield and less air will come onto your helmet.
