Ok, im sure this has been on everyones mind, well mine anyways.
heres my bucket list for my 2013 vmax.
1 Proper saddle bags and brackets. Leather or hard for me long as it looks ok and holds a leather jacket, underwear socks and some other stuff im good.
2. The windscreen for this bike is too small. You get sand blasted, the wind goes over the top and hits you from the chest up. Come on guys make it practical for real use. Travel is not good when your fatigued.
3. A crash bar with highway pegs would be nice. Its not a crotch rocket, its a sport cruiser, supposed to have options.

Im sure if enough of us complain, someone will make something practical for this bike.

To the admin of this site. Bro, need to adjust the avatar size, man 125x125 is way too small to see. I wanted to post a cool avatar and resized it to fit but cant even see it. It never loaded either. Bugs bro. LOL

I agree, as I love to ride the most ultimate bike made to date, I like to be able to travel, that's why highway pegs for different riding position to be able to ride longer is necessary. And saddle bags that are actually useful and don't cost more than the bike, and a backrest option instead of just a but stop.
Shes perfect, just needs options that are real. Oh ya, a larger wind screen to keep the sand and rider fatigue down.
I average 19000 k per year and getting head blown on the highway gets uncomfortable at high speeds especially in a head wind.
Yamaha or aftermarket companies, hope you guys are paying attention. Lots of us are looking but were unable to find it.
Someone will make them and you will lose that customer base.
Oh ya, my friend made brackets for the bike for highway pegs.

Also I know it didn't look great, but he added an extension of 4" to the windscreen, I road it for 10k and what a difference, the pegs and screen made a huge difference for riding position.

1) I'd like to see Tim Nash develop a quick-shifter and modified tune to control it.
2) Brighter LED replacement for the shift light.
3) Narrower, more comfortable seat for us short-legged riders.
4) Bigger cams for more top-end hp, and a lopey idle.
5) Possibly a big bore kit.
