I'm guessing this is a home market only as it's not a make I've come across previously.

Yep, that's the one. Good top box really. Agree its probably a home market
There are only 2 tools you need in life, WD-40 and Duct Tape.If it moves and shouldn't, use the Duct tape, If its doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.

My 2009 GT came with luggage - top box is really useful. Keys match ignition 5/5
Touring Scotoiler 5/5
Hugger 5/5
Heated grips (Honda) 3/5 Never as hot as my old VFR
Baglux Tank Cover and tankbag 5/5 no tank scratches and so easy to refuel.
MRA Vario screen 3/5 Noisier than standard but less buffeting.

After 6 months of owning the biff I have found that it has had the Xenon HID main lights mod but not the LED position lights.

So I think the cheapest mod has to be replacing the position bulbs with HID LED's. Cost 99p for 2 T10 HID LED and 99p postage.  :028:

they are brighter and easy to fit, only need to remove the fairing on the sides and swap the bulbs. easy peasy.

Only had mine about a month so yet to start serious modding. However, the Givi racks and Scottoiler are essential accessories in my view (at least for a daily commuter like me).

Further modifications likely to follow include replacement silencers for a bit more noise, as since moving over from a Ducati I've found on my usual commute that people are tending to pull out on me a bit more. I would also like to fit a better rear shock, and stiffer spring for touring. Might do something at the front too, as some adjustment would be nice!

I'm guessing when you talk about knuckle deflectors, you mean the older model CBF? Are there deflectors available for the 2011 year? Because I had a 2008 with them, and they make a huge difference, and would get them if I could! My new model doesn't have them and I noticed my hand are getting direct wind right away!

The MRA touring screen arrived and I have tried it on the road this morning with a wonderful feeling. I feel less buffering and noise, with the screen in the upper position and the seat also, I can feel the air only in the helmet, with no turbulences. Is the same feeling of a naked bike, but  my chest is covered by the screen.

Just got my cbf 1000 A. Bought an Oxford 38l. tank bag, rode 100 miles in stormy weather, it didnt shift and actually helped keep wind/rain off me.
