I'm getting the lowered one, too (we short FF gotta stick together!) I'm going with the OEM touring screen for two reasons. 1) I'll add it to my moto loan, and 2) I like the idea of using the support frame as an alternative place to mount a GPS or other farkles. I'll put on some Hellas I have laying around and some fogs, or I might get the IPA dual lights. I have a Stebel on order. Brake res, headlight and chain guards are next. I really want the Adventure-Spec bash plate, crash bars, and Jesse's but $$$$ , so we'll see...
Future mods include a Wunderlich dash with power plug, adding an override switch to run the fan, gauges for temps and amps, adding LED brake lights to my side cases, fork boots, and a Dakar style upper fender when it eventually comes out. I kind of want a Dakar/Adventure inspired 650 twin for all-weather combat commuting and occasional 1-up camping and touring.

edit- The powered dash is by Touratech, NOT Wunderlich
I can imagine a no more rewarding career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: "I served in the United States Navy." JFK

"I rode a lot of dirt bikes when I was younger, so I trust the chain and sprockets more than that newfangled voodoo shaft stuff!" DolphinJohn
