Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. - quote attributed to Helen Keller.

Nice! I picked up a 2015 1000 AA a few weeks ago, though I'm not sure how they can call this an "Adventure" when it doesn't have a skid plate!
Have you thought about mods yet?
I miss the centerstand on my '03, so that'll be the next"farkle"; I fell into a deal (here) on a Givi windshield and peg lowering kit, and they made a huge difference, especially the w/s.
Next up - mirror extenders, Spencer seat mod and a skid plate and highway pegs.

I'll probably have an extra top case and mounting rack, if you can wait a couple of weeks; I had a Givi 46 or 52 liter on my '03, so I'm going to try to move that over.
