Brand new. Congrats.

Read up on tires here and decide for yourself if you’re ok with what you got.
Put bigger pegs on. Don’t have to spend much to get rid of those kiddie pegs.

Beyond that, ride it as much as you can. You’ll figure out what else you need. Cheers

A rack is essential, I like having a kick starter, LED lights make a huge difference (I did not find any specifically for a TW, but was able to install a generic headlight bulb from Cycle Gear and a simple 1157 two way bulb for the tail/brake light), I also installed a 15 tooth front sprocket to replace the stock 14, which added 2 -5 mph comfortably in each gear. I installed a horn I pulled off an old Sportster.

Well went ahead and ordered a JNS led Headlight for Black Friday ( they and them on sale if you didn’t already know) ! Have any of you dealt with Jon over there? I accidentally ordered Chrome and was wanting the black version. I left him A message and sent an email, so hopefully he can fix my mistake!

Hey, Grumps...welcome aboard!

You're gonna love the LED headlight, especially the black one.
It's really cool...

Haha this is too funny. You just took that bike away from me. I was at DelAmo Motorsports in Chula Vista just Thursday looking for that bike and they told me that it was recently sold. I ended up buying a new one as the price they gave me was decent. Not the route I wanted to go but could not find anything I wanted in San Diego. Congratulations.
