Farkle hunting

Hi, I just bought a used 2008 DL1000 (my first V-Strom) from a dealer with lots of farkles and a sticker for this website.

I thought I knew all of the farkles ... but I just discovered a front fork brace that I didn't even know I had. ... which is kind of funny since the fork brace gets mentioned a lot and I couldn't understand what the point was (because I already had it). Christmas came early!

This got me thinking. Are there any other popular (i.e. "likely") farkles I should look for while I'm doing maintenance on the bike this winter?

Here's what I know I have:
-GIVI top and side cases
-GIVI windshield with adjustable bracket
-GIVI engine guards
-Seargent Seat
-Superbrace
-12V outlets in the dash and under the passenger seat (installed by me)

For me, being older, my backrest and highway pegs were very nice additions!
