Based on the advice of Hans&Feet, I am creating a tread where I will post all my mods.
I picked up a 2009 VTX 1300R with 6,500 miles on it for $4,600 and sold my 2005 Kawasaki ZX12r. This is my first Honda, after owning 4 Kawasaki's over the years.
This is how it sat at the dealership:
I started by adjusting the rear suspension (the original owner had it sitting at the lowest setting, with very little air pressure). From my research, it should be between 80 - 200 psi. I set it to 110 psi. I ordered a high pressure hand pump from Amazon:
From there, I added some saddle bags (not sure of the brand/model as I ordered it from the dealer when I purchased the bike):
At the same time, they installed speakers, Kuryakyn sounds of chrome. These are the non-Bluetooth model. I also added a Ram mount x-grip and wired a USB to accessories. Because I have an iPhone x without the 3.5mm port, I have a lightning to lightning/3.5mm adapter to charge and play music. I added velcro to the back of my phone case, and to the Ram mount. I have since changed the velcro to black, so it is less obvious.
I ordered a black DayMaker kit from Backyard Air Suspension. I initially was going to go with the competition, but after all the bad reviews, I opted to go with them, and I'm very happy I did. The adapter ring is very heavy duty, had great welds, and a good paint job.
This setup does not allow head light adjustment, their suggestion was to get 3/4" washers, cut them in half, and mount them under the headlight bracket. I think my lights are slightly too high for night time driving, but, it isn't bad enough that it is dangerous to oncoming traffic, but I am a perfectionist with lighting. After my motorcycle trip this weekend, I will mess with it a little.
I have done several HID projector setups on several vehicles (including my 2015 Ram), I have to say this was literally a 5 minute install, and projects almost as good lighting and was 1/4 of the cost (1/2 the cost is expected since it is only one headlight). I already can not imagine going back to the factory halogen setup.
