Congrats on your purchase.
Centre stand.....some people like the SWmotech one. I, however, have the Triumph one and it works OK.,show...nterstand,.htm Just beware that the 800 & 800XC are different.

Extra lights.......the Triumph ones have been prone to moisture ingress and intermittent failures. They replace them under the warranty. Some have fitted Denali or similar instead. or

Also, if you intend to use it on dirt roads, a decent bash plate is a must. I'd recommened the SWmotech one as it comes up high enough to protect the oil filter. And, there's enough room to change that filter without removing it.

Decent hand guards.......don't buy the T800XC ones as they're crap. If you're buying an XC just change them ASAP. These are rebadged BarkBusters......

Of course, most of that you'll have to fit yourself but, apart from the lights, its' all quite simple. And now that I've emptied your wallet, I'm off to make a coffee.
3 - 1 black Tigers. 955i+800XC (sold)+800XC=113000 miles of fun.
