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.

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
