Down payment on a '14 GS

Gonna take the plunge later on today and put a deposit down and order a new '14 GS. Before I do, any last minute advice? I think it's the technology and touring package that I'm going to add to the base..which includes: ABS, traction control, computer, heated grips, electronic cruise, GPS prep, TPM, LED light, etc. Is there anything else that you recommend? I think I'm going to have them wire my conspicuity lights (Denali DX), install a fuse block/terminal, and include an adapter for my Gerbings Heated Jacket. I like the Denali's at half the price of the Clearwaters. I have the Denali's on my current bike. I don't want to screw around with electrical stuff. No that I can't, I just don't want to on a new expensive bike. I'll put the bags/cases on myself and any other farkles..down the road. The MSRP is $20,015. I doubt the dealer will take any off of that price since these things are flying off the dealer lots. But, should the dealer throw any incentives in? Labor? Service? Oh, one last thing, can a dealer put on some kind of modulating brake light (that flashes initially when the brake is depressed)? Any brand that you recommend? Thanks again. Big day for me.

Congrats on the new bike. I have 13 GS and love it. Only thing I can add is that I tried to have a Admore brake light put on at Twisted Throttle in Rhode Island. They could not get it to work. Something was changed with the CanBus from 12 to 13 and Admore doesnt have a brake light for it yet. They did mount DX's on my crash bars and installed a Stebel...(spelling) horn, which is great. Stock horn sounds like crap. Good luck!!!

I would call around, I have had issues getting the one I ordered. I found one just like it at a different dealer in stock with a 1200 discount. With luck I will pick it up Thursday evening. There are bikes coming in that people have backed out on.

Most every dealer will offer some kind of discount on accessories. I got 15% or 20% off any item they had in stock or could order for 30 days after I bought my bike. Some dealers will throw in a first service, it depends on the dealer I guess or how well your negotiating skills are. I'd certainly take my business elsewhere if they aren't willing to give you a discount on accessories.
