I haven't even purchased my 07 yet (waiting to sell my Boulevard and get my bonus check), and I've already identified approximately $4300 in upgrades I want to do.

$4300 in upgrades? I think that, with the purchase price, will buy you a bike that doesn't need upgrades. :) Don't get me wrong though. I understand. Upgrading is part of the fun.  I think I'm about $1500 into mine now (that's including the new Akra Ti exhaust I should be receiving tomorrow).  Plus... It's a great bike that you can customize to make your own.

Yeah I realize I wouldn't get everything I want, and certainly not all at once -- just making a wish list and about choked when I added it up :)

I have about $600 in upgrades in mine so far. There are still things on the list, but that is what birthdays/Christmas is for.

Hmm... you've made me realize that I haven't quite added the cost of all the mods I've done so far...  :-X

If you don't add it up, it doesn't hurt nearly as much. :)

$4300?! Is that all? :P
 
Hey, the way I see it you only live once. Motorcycles are my thing and people give me trouble all the time about how I buy a brand new bike and turn around and replace half the parts. But, end of the day both my cars and my four bikes don't equal what some people spend on a luxury car or sport utility.

Admittedly a cool grand has gone into mine.. but at least I'm done, basically.
 
Exhaust, fuel controller, fork damper rod kit, touring bags, rad guard and wind screen. Not too bad. Might address the rear shock eventually but it's keen for now.

There is no such thing as a bike that doesn't need upgrades :). You'll find something that you can add or replace to make it yours.
Between suspension, exhaust, guards, LEDS and plate holder...no, I don't know how much I spent :) Somehow my wife does not believe me, but I'll stick to my story.

well let's just say suspension and exhaust + fuel controller account for the majority of the cost :)

If I had to estimate, I would say I have spent between $1,500-$2,000 in upgrades on mine. The majority of that being the Akrapovic TI. Haha

as me and the guy I worked with found out, some of these parts
must be replaced here in mn and wi
some are not legal here in these states
the factory exhaust doesn't meet the emission standards and needs replaced
or like the lic plate must not be further then 3 inches from the tail
ect ect and the list goes on
at least that's what my wife thinks
