Congratulations! You've got twins! Two main mods to start with- cyclerack, it's saved my plastics, pegs and turn signals too many times to count! And a more aggressive front tire, if you do any off-roading you will know why the first time the front end slides out from under you.



Many folks will tell you to go ahead and switch to an oring chain but I prefer to get my moneys worth out of the stock one.



Carb can be tuned but I personally have been having a hard time with that.



Depending on your height, you may want to get risers or a taller set of bars.



Theres plenty more that can be done but that should get ya started!



*edit: I have been trying to convince my brother to get a bike too. He's 30 and i'm 27. Needless to say, I am jealous. I don't think i'll ever convince him...

Nice! many fun adventures await you and your brother. Make sure you have a good camera and show everyone your local riding spots you find (and your brother falling...). Many things you can do to your bikes but of course thats up to you. I still have original tires and havn't had a problem with it. I've only fell off once down a rather steep deep sandy hill but wasn't the tires fault...LOL. If/when it wears out then going to a better tire as many on the forum have suggested.

Cute!



PSC, you can't get your money's worth out of the stock chain. If you try, you'll wipe out the sprockets along with the chain. Switching to an o-ring chain now will be less money than replacing the sprockets once you add in enough on chain cleaning and lubricating supplies to pay for the replacement chain.
