New K1300s in SC

Good Evening Everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Dion and as of Tuesday I will be the proud owner of a new K1300s. Ive been lurking this site now for over 2 years learning from the infinite wisdom being shared here about the K. I had until now been an avid GSXR owner (02,05 and 07 models). However after a test ride of the 13 I found out how powerful, well mannered and smooth a bike could truly be. Not to mention the handling is great for a bike of its size. I am 6'2" 215ish so my 07 GSXR 1k was getting a bit cramped for long hauls and such. Of course i did look at the S1krr but once again, too small and IMHO not a real world bike, track toy yes but not so much real world. Im already planning some custom work such as paint and powdercoating so I hope if anyone has any advice for me you will kindly share it as im more than willing to learn! If anyone has something of a "roadmap" of reccomended mods, tunes etc for the 13 please let me know as ill be interested in that as well thanks alot guys and im glad to finally be here
