    New Owner, Long-Time Forum Lurker

    Good evening, F6B peeps!

    Well, I finally pulled the trigger on a 2015 Matte Silver Deluxe with
    15,000 miles. It is being delivered tomorrow afternoon, and rarely
    have I ever been this excited! I'm coming from a 2009 Suzuki M109R.
    I sold that a few years ago, and have since been motorless, mostly
    due to the fact that I ride a motorcycle for a living (), and most of
    my enjoyment from riding came from going on trips with my lovely
    bride. I lowered the 109 two inches in the rear, which made for a
    rather uncomfortable ride for her, so she didn't join me much anymore.
    After a couple years of hardly ever riding, I sold the 109. I'm excited
    now to own a bike that is a comfortable ride for a passenger, yet
    still maintains a sporty look!

    Just from photos sent by the dealer, the previous owner installed
    an AngryStad (I understand the actual term isn't allowed on here
    for some reason, though I'm not sure why) windshield, Torq Loopz,
    an unknown brand of highway pegs, an unknown brand heated seat,
    and the foglights appear to be aftermarket, but I won't know until
    tomorrow. Additionally, the turn signals have smoke lenses, though
    I won't know until tomorrow if the lights were upgraded to LEDs.

    ANYWAY, introductions aside, I have a couple questions:

    1) Rivco Aero pegs: do they come with pegs now that enable
    deployment while riding? Or is that something you guys are
    doing yourselves after purchase?

    2) Is/was there a guy named Simon on this forum, by any chance?
    That was the original owner in Chicago. Would love to get up with
    him to get a list of aftermarket accessories he installed.

    3) Is Dr. Beasleys my best bet for keeping this matte finish clean?
    Do any of you matte owners have any other tips for washing?

    Looking forward to gleaning some knowledge from this forum!
    Thanks for reading!

    Welcome to the forum and I hope you enjoy your new ride. I can't answer your first two questions but for cleaning my bike I use mostly plain warm water and Spray Away Glass Cleaner. Spray Away has no amonia so it is safe for the matte finish, acrylic windscreens and helmet visors.

    Have fun

    Welcome! Now you get to regularly experience first hand what all of the fuss is about.

    The Rivco pegs for the 2018 have a post on the bottom, making it easier to flip out with your boot. I don’t see that they have this feature on previous models.

    They DO have the boot peg for the F6B RIVCO's. I just installed a new pair a couple weeks ago. Bought on Amazon.

    That is great. None of their pics showed the post but it makes sense that it would now be on all. I will drill mine one day and fit a roll pin or post.

    I second the use of Spray Away Glass Cleaner! It's a foam so it's great at dissolving the bugs.
