Most important thing is to be vigilant at defensive driving on a motorcycle. Especially so in spring in cooler climates where car and truck drivers get a bit lazy at watching out for motorcycles in the winter months. Wear protective gear and have fun. Depending on speeds driven on a normal day, a lot of folks do a sprocket change to better suit their needs. I have one bike with a one tooth bigger on the front (15) and the other is all stock (14) and find either to be suitable but the taller gear of that 15 tooth front sprocket is noticeable in a positive way on the 55 mph roads and the stock gearing bike still works well too but revs a bit higher but is a tad bit better in low gear off road riding.
