Carbon Fiber Pieces........what parts would you like to see??

I had a manufacturer contact me about possible CF pieces for the Vstrom. He already has CF for the front cowl ($65), side panels below the seats ($245), the upper heat shield ($105), lower heat shield ($98 ).........all pieces that I consider "bling", not a "farkle". What pieces can you think of that would BENEFIT the bike by being produced in CF. I'm thinking "Skid-pan".......maybe some heel guards??.......front fender (different shape than stock......maybe 1" higher??)........handguards........what else??

CF...too funny!!! I'm currently in mid build on a carbon fiber hydrofoil to use in kitesurfing. all your need is a mold (take a piece off your bike) and lay it up. it's really that simple... (not)

I've been laying up the cf, sanding, and adding more cf. this is a long process without a vacuum. i've not taken any pics of the cf yet.
