Hi Everyone!!!!

My name is Federico and I just got my first motorcycle, 2014 Tiger 800 XC color Khaki green and I love it!!!!

Now I need to learn EVERYTHING like I'm looking on how to customize a little bit the bike and how to connect my phone to use it as GPS....and I also need to buy gloves,jacket, pants.....

Any suggestions? I know it's a lot of stuff but you maybe know that there is already a thread perfect for me

Also I got yesterday my license plate and the holes on the bike are not even close prob 1/2" different....what can I do? Mod the plate or the bike?

Thanks so much

Welcome. As to using your phone as a GPS, I've found that a bluetooth system in my helmet works very well to receive verbal directions. If you want to see the map display while riding there are handlebar mounts available for various style phones. Whatever you decide on, don't let it be a distraction from the road and your surroundings.
