I commute via highway to a dense downtown hospital into a parking garage. I do this year round, rain or shine from 24-106 degrees.
The mods I have added:
1" touratech handlebar riser
Bikemaster highway pegs
Widder heated troller
Pirelli scorpion street tires
Krooztune 1.25" lowering kit
Base model seat (I have an ATAS)
SW Motech pro saddle carriers
Givi e22 cases (for dressing up or down for weather)
SW Motech rear plate
Givi v46 (for my works shoes, work bag, and school bag)
The bike is hardy in shitty weather. The TCS and ABS do their jobs when riding through flash floods, icy conditions, and heavy winds.
It is light enough to flick around in traffic, but heavy enough to not get blown around to terribly in wind.
All in all it is an excellent commuting bike. On the weekends I have a 2.5 hour commute to my other job and it's fine. I eventually want a more comfortable saddle, but that's really it.
