Many are pretty much stock and have no problems. But skid plates would be first on my list of mods.

I agree with Jerry. I think everyone will have there own personal opinion and this is going to be mine. You can spend as much money as you want to when it comes to aftermarket accessories. You may just want to go riding a few times just to see for yourself. Thats the way I did it and each time I go, I seem to change something or find something else I need. I haven't done that in a while so I must be satisfied finally.

Some of the very first things I got:
Complete Ricochet skid plate kit
Winch
Top
Some dry storage
Some fuel jugs

These seemed to be at the top of the list as far as potection and things needed. For me it seems that I couldn't have enough dry storage especially in the cold weather months. Definitly some extra fuel just in case. A top to keep rain and sun off me. A winch just in case too. Skid plates because of bottoming out a lot at the time. From there........ Its gotten a little crazy. But, these are some small things to consider. 431114

I agree with these guys. First of all, you need a good portable air compressor and tire plugs and you need a place to store them. It is hard to drive back on a flat and not destroy a tire. Skid plates, because it can cost you money if you don't have them. If you ride by your self you need a winch. If you ride with some one most of the time you could put that off for a while. Storage, you need some place dry to keep extra gloves, rain coat and maybe food. And yes, you need a roof. The list won't stop there. The more you ride the more you will see what others have and you can decide where to go from there.

I have had a parking brake sitting in my garage for months I am planning to install. I can get by with out it, but it is really nice to have. If you don't have one you need to be careful where you park. DON'T PUT IT IN PARK ON A STEEP GRADE!!!!!!! You won't be able to get it out.

I would recommend a top,lift kit and a set of UHMW skids and a arm guards first. Then everything else will come as you start to customize your ride.

bare minimum for riding in Tennessee, Ky, Wv is skid plate system, tire repair kit w/12 volt compressor, good tow strap and Some sort of storage box or bag for items, small 2 way radio, if night riding, you need HID lights either kit for headlights or bolt on ones. Things that are good to have but not a required to go is a lift kit, from racer tech, (beware of others most can cause cv bind) winch(nice to have but rarely needed) roof, windshield and back window for winter riding, and there is a thousand other cool things you will find out there.
