Money to Burn

saying I have $400 and a new bike, and want to invest this money into it, what should I do first ?

My thoughts were, get oil change, get power commander re-mapped (im runnig rich) and anything left over buy gloves and boots (i have neither)

Go for the safety gear first, the oil change would be next in line, then everything else will fall into place after that. Safety first my friend, you'll never regret a good pair of gloves and boots along with the lid.

Definatley get the gear first. Maybe just the gloves first, if you can afford both then that's great. Gloves saved my hands the other day, so I'm all for gloves hahaha
