Unfortunately I'm way past three
...but

1. Skid plate. Pick your poison, but try to avoid the ones that mount on the sump.

2. Crash bars

3. Madstad bracket. Gives the OEM windshield much better adjustability and use even in 5 Celsius weather.

... and then....

4. Bags

5. Heated grips (for us northern folk)

6. 50/50 tires if you want to go off-road with the beast or even gravel roads. K60's are what I installed.

7. Replace OEM left heel/ankle guard with something you won't catch your pants on. I got Altrider's.

8. Clink your spokes with a wrench to hear if they need tightening. They are supposed to settle after a few k under them.

9. Fill the void under the headlights with some driving lights. Also looks much better too!

10. Wider side stand foot as this beast is heavy and leans quite a lot on the side stand.

OOPS...I guess it's top 10 farkles now.

I agree... and its fun... but one must be cognizant of the fact you can add material weight gains by bolting on too much stuff.

I added a couple of items over the weekend:

Altrider.com's side stand foot and the Pivot Pegs (MK3), both nice addons, especially for my size 12 boot.

Thanks for the input guys. Keep it coming.
Yeah the more I see everyone with them and remembering back to my offroad forays with my 1100GS, I was glad to have them, and should get some for the S10.

Look at these Hepco Becker bars... and the way they pinched down near the welds on my old GS:

Also, not urgent but someone suggested the Yamaha blinkers. If you don't like the originals these are an excellent replacement. Fits to bike with no hassles. Just make sure to buy a relay as well.
These are on my list... AlsoRan you are one of many who have recommended the AF-1 reflash. I did not realize it but I was in their dealership Saturday night. We were are the MotoGP race in Austin, and a friend who lives local invited us to the AF-1 after-party in downtown Austin. I did not put the two together until after I got there. Great party, and now wish I had put my ECU in my bag...

Still wondering that myself... S is bad enough except for when roads are slick, then I don't mind the slow takeoff. Normally use SS mod, try the fuse CJM if you haven't already. It will tide you over till you stump up for the reflash.
