I've realized something that is kind of a first for me.

All other bikes I've had, I immediately started making changes; steel brake lines, different pads, lowered gearing, fork re-valve, aftermarket shocks, exhaust and fueling changes, lighter wheels, etc, etc.

This 790 Duke? Other than eliminating the passenger pegs and installing an Evotech tail tidy, I like this bike exactly as they built it. I don't even see need for adjustable suspension, it's just right for me. I think this speaks to how well this bike was engineered. They put money and resources into exactly the right things. I am impressed.

I/m with you 100%. I have added a Coober/Wings/open air box package as it changes the performance of the bike incredibly - smoothing things out as they should be - other than that an heated grips its fine for me as is

I do agree with you. I also agree with AMatu. The tail tidy is a must, and for the most part the only other thing I have/will be doing is protection. I like to personalize though, and I love the black bike, but there is something about it that seems to plain to me.
