Congrats on your new bike. Sounds like it is working out well for you. They are fun bikes! If you decide to sell your stock seat give me a shout. I am in the market for a stock seat to mess around with!

I just ticked over 13.5K miles on my 2018 that I bought last July with 1,300 miles on it. I did add bar risers, grip puppies, Givi bags and engine guards, and Skene lights front and back. Just replaced the chain and sprockets (Sprocket Center) DID VM3 Gold x-Ring chain and Superlite sprockets. Very happy with this chain! I also recommend the Avon Trail Rider tires. Great on pavement and pretty darn good on gravel/dirt roads too. I also lowered the bike with Soupy's and bought the NC700S centerstand (shorter than OEM) and had the sidestand cut/welded professionally.

I agree with the OP, I'd like to get larger foot pegs.

Heated Grips? I had them on all my BMWs. They're just OK. Last year I bought battery powered heated gloves. https://www.amazon.com/Autocastle-E...jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==. They were quite affordable compared to Gerbings plug-in models. I rode with them all winter (and early spring). They beat heated grips hands down (IMHO). WIth a set of handguards, a heated jacket liner, and a Puig windscreen, I'm plenty warm for cold weather riding.

Thanks. I'm gonna see if the Shad works out 1st and if not at least I have the option to send my stock seat out and have it redone without any downtime.

BTW I was up at my local dealer the other day and the pegs for the new Monkey look even better (wider) than the Grom pegs.
