Best Additions to a 1190 R

I will be picking up my 1190R next week after test riding the new BMW1200GSA, 1190S and 1290SA.
Can you please advise on the best additions (It comes with the Unifilter kit installed)?

Well, I'm partial to my choices but.....

MV Motoventure Skidplate
KTM Heated grips
HDB Handguards
Barrett Slip on muffler
Cox Rad guard
Cyclops LED headlight
Scotts steering damper
Enduristan Monsoon soft bags
Powercell filler neck with filter
Powercell pod intake
Powercell AIS delete kit
Rade Garage pegs
And most recently Tractive rear shock

Next up are some double take mirrors for more crash protection...


Or don't do anything and just ride the piss out of it.

KTM Heated grip if you ride in the cold at all.

Cyclops LED headlights, must have if you drive at night.

Air filter is a MUST. I like the Powercell setup and it has worked great for me but the Uni filter or Rot filters also seem to work well for others here.

I would get these things first and everything else you want you can add as you go.

I think the stocker is just fine for street use.

I don't care about street use though so I went with the Scotts. Its way better off road.

Since you are from Australia,

B&B skid plate
Rad design radiator guard
Your bike comes with the Unifilter kit
