Been adding small accessories as I have gotten to know the bike better.
>Bought a chrome radiator cover here on the forum to dress up the front a bit.
>Also picked up a larger set of highway bars. The OEM ones wouldn't protect squat.
>Got rid of the passenger seat and pegs. Installed a fender cover and solo rack
>Added a Mustang Tank Bib (more for looks than function)
Winter 2016
> Just bought a windscreen and lowers from a local forum member. Will install during the down season. Summer 2017: Installed the windscreen and lowers. BIG difference!

Powertrain
Just bought a DJ Drive from Corey on this Forum, will be installing it at the May 8th Wrench Party.
> Installed and what a difference. Easier riding and better cruising

Suspension
2001 Volusia VL800 Suspension
> Added 4" Risers w/1" pull back. BIG difference in comfort! They put me in the "right" riding position.

Wheels and Tires
>Looking to get a set of Michelin Commanders in the spring.

Creature Comforts
2001 Volusia VL800 Creature Comforts
>Added a set of OEM bags to the bike. Really wanted to keep the stripped down look, but couldn't carry squat with me.
>Bought a nice used Mustang Seat for it here on the Forum. Big upgrade on comfort.
>Added ISO grips and a Throttle Boss. No more numb hands on long rides.

Electronics
>Added a Stebel air horn. GET THIS HORN! Freaking loud and scares the sh*t out of people. They WILL know you're there
>Got a set of OEM aux lights for another VR member. More lights the better!
>Installed a Vololights license plate frame. Check it out on the web. Flashes on deceleration
