History
This is my second CTX700. I bought a new Red 2014 in May 2017 for 4499.00. I dressed it up and set it up, and then, with 3300 miles on it, was hit on the hwy and totaled it. After I healed i bought a new Blue 2015 CTX700 for 4999.00 and set it up and dressed it up again.

Modifications

Drivetrain
the standard engine and six speed manual. standard exhaust, too.
Exterior
I added the rack and tall Puig windshield. I also added the Honda centerstand. I got it from Webikes.com. took about 2 months for it to get here from Japan, but it is perfect.
I added after marked saddle bags for one third the price of the Hondaline, and they work great. They also have large tail lights that adds to my visibility. I had Honda hard bags on my first one. They are fine, too, but i really fell in love with the extra tail lights.
I also added after market crash bars and bag protectors. If i had these on my first CTX i might not have sustained as much damage to my left knee in the wreck.
Audio
None. Stock works fine for me.
Lighting
I have added quite a few running lights and tail lights.
It adds greatly to my night time visibility.
and i think It looks cool!
Exhaust
Stock exhaust. I love how quiet it is.
Suspension
i think i will add a Corbin Seat. My wife wants a little more cushion for longer rides.
Wheel and Tire
Stock. Might look at the Michelin line when it is time to change.

What are the aftermarket crash bars and bag protectors you have? Also what kind of trunk did you get? I recently installed the OEM bags (still waiting for the red panels in the mail) on my red 2014 along with the rear carrier and back rest (even though nobody rides with me, my wife refuses lol). After this photo I just threw on my Nelson Rigg commuter tail bag.
