    I'll start

    I bought my 2013 NC700X used with 5,000 miles on it. It came with center stand OEM side cases, light bar and the power outlet in the frunk and heated grips. The OEM power outlet has a 1 amp max so I would recommend going aftermarket. The first thing I added was a set of bark busters, I got the VPS set and think I would prefer the STORM now because of the additional wind coverage. The next thing I did was replace the outlet with a 5 amp aftermarket and added a dual USB outlet also. Not sure if the order of the rest but sense then I've done the cheap level your seat mod, added a LED bulb for the headlight and tail light, replaced the foot pegs after breaking the one on the right side (twice) a auto chain oiler put a sit-n-fly seat cover, fender extender and some cheap straight from Japan cross bar for the handle bars, adjustable clutch and brake levers (long) a set of gators for fork protection, I recently bought a rear rack from another on the forum and I'm currently installing a fuse block and auxiliary lights with on/off switch.
    That's all I can think of. Everything else has been maintenance I'm currently at 58,000+

    I mostly use my NC for commuting to work 3-5 days a week it's 120 mile round trip and I'm riding from Los Banos to Morgan Hill so I'm going over Pacheco pass. I also go for weekend trips with my wife 4 or 5 times a year and solo trips when I can

    My NC is mainly used for pleasure riding, basic transportation.
    The mods I am least sure I like are the lowered footpegs (more vibration) and the Sargent seat, which is ok, but I suspect I should have just embraced the Russell.

    The footpegs are Knight Designs. They are good footpegs, just no rubber under the boot.

    That's what I liked about the cheap replacement pegs I got the rubber on top is actually hallow so it really dampens vibrations

    I have the knight lowered pegs. Never noticed a difference really. If you wear good boots, pegs don't feel that different.

    +1 to this. Switching from Doc Martens to Dainese made a bigger difference than going from rubber pegs to more off road style pegs.

    What's on your motorcycle-img_0124-jpg

    I bought my 2013 700S in 2015 with 10,800km from the original owner. Currently at 33,169. It came with a 22" Madstad. I broke it after a run in with some ice and really missed it so got another. I was given some Barkbuster blizzards which I'm not sure I would have purchased with my own money. I'm happy with them just think that you don't get much for the price point. I got a big ol Givi 58L top case from motostorm.it. Don't regret it either. Wanted a top case to a) maintain current aerodynamics b) back rest for the Mrs.

    I have not put much effort into farkles. Distributed spending into gear, tools and rider training. I commute as much as possible taking the bike off the road when/if the snow or ice sticks. This is my first bike. My riding style started out miserly to conserve fuel and has evolved into "spirited" for more fun.
