Don't spend on upgrades "yet". Wait at least six months. Once you're totally happy with your bike then upgrade.

Learn how to ride slow so that you can ride fast. Go to a parking lot and practice going as slow as you can. Your goal is to see if you can lock your steering and still make the circle.

Learn how to do emergency braking until it's second nature.

Learn how to "fan" the clutch to control speed.

The headlight on your profile pic looks interesting, can you share more detail on it?

Don't let out the clutch too quickly or the bike will stall.
Do have the roadside assistance number/card with you at all times.
And welcome Pema!

An old motorcycle teacher taught me long time ago: Any idiot can drive a motorcycle fast on an open straigt road and survive, but it takes skills to drive safely yet slowly in traffic or off-road.

..or any large open space. If it has a "loose" surface, like sand or gravel, the better.

Make sure that you activate the ABS, so you get the feel for how it feels when it's working. This to avoid releasing the brakes when ABS starts to "rattle" when doing an emergency braking.
Ofcourse you can do what ever you like with any advice. The only way to learn to drive a motorcycle is simply put: Driving a motorcycle. That goes for any motorcycle.
