Time for a "mod" on the Bike...

Problem is, there are a few things I am thinking about. Just cant decide. I want a leather jacket, and would make my mesh one the spare/summer jacket. I have been dying to get a new can for the looks and sound other than OEM. A paint job and new fairings has also crossed my mind (getting the paint for free, just need to buy new plastics). I have steel toed "work boots" I ride with, or is it time for some riding boots? My budget is $300 max to spend on 1 mod...

decisions, decisions

what do you guys think?

Get the Gear first. That leather jacket sound like the best place to start.

I was also thinking gear first.

BTW the order of the items is the order of my interest in purchasing, starting from the top being the most desired.

You put boots as last. That's fine with the over the ankle boots you already have.
If you ever get real ridding boots. You'll wonder how you stood riding with work boots.

if you only have a mesh jack, a leather is a must. Get the leather jacket.

I really hate to clump gear and mods in the same catagory. Gear must always come first. So I guess I'll vote for the leather jacket.

For example, I went out and bought a new helmet for the chopper and I don't even get the bike for another 5 months...
