Skid plate comparison; new 1190 available

Hi all,

I got lucky and found an unspoken for 1190 R. Bought it yesterday; woohoo! The dealer - Motor Cafe in Sunnyvale, CA - actually has a standard model that's also unspoken for if anyone's interested.

I'm looking for a skid plate for the bike and I'm wondering if anyone's done a comparison between the one's available. I used to have an Adventure Spec plate on my F800Gs but they don't seem to make one for the 1190 yet.

Apologies if this has been covered before; I did a couple of searches and didn't find anything.

On a related note, are there any other additions that 1190 owners think are pretty much essential? I'm not a fan of farkles (I know: heresy!) but the skid plate's essential and I'm wondering if there's anything else that is. I'll be putting Heindau K60s on the bike soon so it's a bit better off road.
