    Got the winter blues without the bike on the road already and want to do some modifications again, BUT, with Xmas coming up and two small kids money’s not plentiful... what’s the best cheapest mods you’ve done?

    What about LED/projector type headlight bulb? I know it is not very exciting, but a cheap and very effective mod.

    Don't do it. You'll spend money on a mod you can't use and the lift you'll get will be extremely fleeting and you'll have less money. Get some books on riding and enjoy those and get out on dry days wrapped up warm.

    if you ride al year, get a radiator guard, fender extender and longer rear hugger.
    change the OEM bulbs with higher output not wattage) halogens: osram night racer or phillips xtremes
