Lotsa great ideas here. Just what I need, more stuff I can't afford.

12GS specific but especially considering the cost/benefit ratio it would have to be the 1200GS Adv winglets. So much quieter, calmer, less fatique.

Although I only have a few rides in it, I am sure liking my BMW Savanna II coat. Kind of embarrassed to admit it but it's my first armored coat in 3 years of on road riding. I tried on a Joe Rocket jacket a couple of years ago and couldn't imagine trying to ride in something that uncomfortable. I just hope I never get the chance to try on a Rallye II.....kinda out of my price range but i bet they're even nicer. Maybe a used one someday.

The first thing I had to get for my GS was a Kaoko throttle lock. I had become spoiled riding Airheads with the throttle tension screws. My hand goes numb without some type of throttle lock. Electronic cruise would be even nicer. Are you listening BMW?
