List:
1) GPS, then you can go anywhere!
2) Heated grips, warm hands leads to warm heart!
3) Center-stand to do chain with someone to help you get it on the stand in case your like me!
4) Waterproof. lockable luggage
5) Barkbusters, if you can't get her on the centerstand then most likely a drop is in your future in which case the BB will protect your clutch & throttle

5a) Hepco Becker engine guards in 5 if a issue

3.Dual sport tires. I'm running Shinko 705s and am loving the difference over the Road Attacks I was running. Don't get me wrong, the Conti's are a fabulous tire right up until you get into anything slick. Mud, wet grass, peat bogs, road kill...
4.Heated grips. Mmmmm. Warm palms and I'm not standing in the shower... Still bordering on euphoric.
5.Center stand. No brainer. Plain and simple.
+5 on each of these, down to the 705's

Default Only 5 ?

Don't get me wrong , I love my Wee , and plan to circle the globe ( or at least the province ) again this summer , but sometimes I kick myself for buying a bike that " needs " this extreme degree of farkling - most of the previous lists posted equate to about $1000.00 out of pocket .
I'm perhaps one of the more farkle - addicted ; I've got $3000.00 in farkles on the bike , $2000.00 in farkles on the way ( Russell seat and panniers ) , I want to upgrade the suspension at both ends = $ 1000 .00 ...
How about the top 5 in each of the following categories : 1) crash protection , 2) rider comfort / ergonomics , 3) electrical / lighting / dashboard , 4) tires / suspension , 5) maintenance .......
Alex
