Welcome to the wonderful world of VN750.com! Here you will find a place to scream for help, or merely ask opinions on the new mod you're considering. Visit often and read several posts when you do. You can learn a lot from others' mistakes and victories. I was so impressed by one guy's hard bag installation thread, I got the same bags (they rock!).
My wife has lots of family in KL and Singapore. If we manage a visit any time soon, we'll give you KL riders a holler.
As far as the "easy rider thing", it's not as dominant as you might think. Make your own ride, create your own look. Ride what keeps you safe and happy. I wear a screaming yellow safari-cut armored jacket, hardly the biker stereotype. In fact, I'm probably going to install tiki torches and a shrunken head or two on my cycle, make some tiki decals for my hard bags. That outlaw biker look is only fifty years old, let's come up with something new.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
