First time motorcycle owner

Good afternoon all. I just purchased my first bike ever. A 2012 monster 696 with 2800 miles. I know nothing about bikes other than knowing I have always wanted one. My father has been riding since he was 15 back in our home country. I am looking for any advice, tips, known problems etc. I have registered to take my 2 wheel safety course. Advice please? I am 5'5 and weigh 210 LBS. What are the best upgrades I can do to make it a better fit/ride for my height and weight. Thank you all.

Suspension. The place to start is getting your suspension dialed into your weight and the sort of riding you're doing, street, track, street and track.
Whatever the type your doing a well tuned suspension, make everything better about your 696. Your ride, handling, braking and acceleration will all improve greatly.

After you have done your suspension, get a termignoni slip-on and a custom dyno tune. Then you can bling up your D
