He couldn't install the self cancelling turn signals so instead he added a 12 volt power port. That was just as well as I've found the self cancelling feature to be terrible. They cancel so fast in a straight line that you usually need to activate them again.
    I could do without the self cancelling turn signals too, for the very reason you stated. They can be dangerous when they turn off too early.

    The B doesn’t have the correct wiring harness to just add factory cruise. At least that’s what I was told when I bought mine. I had asked for cruise to be added before I picked it up. It could be done but the dealer quoted around 3k to do it. That was on a 2013 so I’m assuming the 14 is the same.

    The Mc Cruise is an option that you can use with the factory controls. You’re still looking at $1500-2k though. At that price and the cost of a used 16, a better option would be to just buy the 16 IMO. I did see a used Mc Cruise system with controls for $500 a couple weeks ago. I was too slow and should have just jumped on it.

    What are some things that I need to address on a 2015 with 23,000 miles? Other than the obvious fluids and filter change. The bike looks great but I'm coming off years of riding harley touring bikes where I did all my own maintenance.

    New to this bike and like my rides to be mechanical solid and up to date on scheduled services.

    Make sure the brake recall was done.
