This bike demands them!  Best money I've spent on accessories since I purchased the bike.  :305:

So what else have you bought ? And how good / useful have you found it ?

I definitely want a dark screen, it's a white bike so I think it needs it. The BM one is €260. Sure I can get nearly 3 aftermarket ones for that price !

Also on my 'list' are levers. I really hate the standard, non-adjustable, clutch lever. Would it have killed them to put one similar to the brake lever on ?
And fender extender.

Other items being considered are aux lights (I ride a lot of unlit country roads), crashbars (somewhere to mount the lights if nothing else), and a side stand extender.
Anything I've missed...?

Don't plan on any off road but wanted to get the guards on the coolers.  This bike doesn't leave me feeling like I want to be on the dirt............and I've ridden dirt bikes for most of my life.  If I was going to be any off roading the extenda fender would be the thing to have for sure!

Looking for a slightly larger tinted shield and new levers this spring.  Also thinking about whether I'll fork over any money for more noise but not necessarily more HP.  Having ridden with the Akra it's tempting because it sounds so sweet but thinking more Remus if I have the extra $ burning a hole in my pocket.

a side stand extender

Shoulda got that first - second day out on it the pointy side stand dug into the ground (even though I thought I'd been careful with the placement) while my back was turned & my lovely bike hit the deck  :138:

Thankfully not. The front indicator popped out but didn't break & the pannier got scuffed but I'm planning on putting a wrap on it anyway.

I take it you have the grey panniers?  What colour wrap are you considering?
