Of all the crap that I have bought for my GS, the Sargent seat and the $40 HID headlight upgrade are the two that I am most happy with.

I bought the BMW Adventure panniers for my regular GS with the bike (the deal I was offered was too good to pass up). As far as other farkles, in the order of preference and usefulness:

  1. Heated grips (unless you live in FL)
  2. GSA winglets
  3. Engine guards (the aftermarket ones are little cheaper)
  4. On board computer (I don't have this but I do wish I had the thermometer, don't care about the other info the computer provides)
  5. Better windshield (GSA is OK, the GS windshield sucks)
  6. Beak extension (just looks naked without it)
You are better off buying everything else aftermarket.
