I've had my 2012 650 Adventure about a week, and already have Skid Plate, Intiminators, Fork Brace, and Peg Lowering kit installed. Top rear case on order, as well as Eastern Beaver Dual H4 Headlight kit ordered. Only thing I have left is to decide on Handguards. Sure did like Cycra on my other bikes. Not so sure what works best on this one.
Hard to believe I still haven't put any money out of my pocket towards the actual bike itself, since they offered 0 down, 0% interest, with no discount if I would have paid cash.
I still find it hard to believe I have a bike this nice at such a good deal.
You didn't waste anytime at all. I'll most likely end up with a fork brace and Intiminators as well, but I want to put some miles on the bike first so that I can get a good feel of the bike all stock first.
I ordered the plastic spoiler / engine cowl from the dealer when they offered a discount. I don't care for the look of the skid plates and I don't think I'll venture off-road much if at all.
I have a farkle list started already but right now it contains the essential stuff:
Wiring harnesss for GPS & heated gear
SW Motech racks for panniers
I choose SW Motech because I want Trax panniers for traveling but I already have some small Givi e21's that I'll probably use for commuting. The SW Motech's make it easy to switch pannier brands.
I'll looking for handguards but I'm not sure which ones I want just yet. The same goes for crash bars.
I'm not sure if I'm going to order a wiring harness from Eastern Beaver or if I'm going to build my own. The EB kit is top notch, but I do enjoy building my own harnesses.
I'm leaning towards to the AdventureTech ( Richland Rick ).
For the Center stand I'll definitely be going with the SW Motech stand.
Thanks for your feedback.
