    I'm very new to the GS scene so I'm looking forward to this thread. I got BMW engine guards, aux lights and vario cases. I've ordered an MRA X-creen touring spoiler that I should have in a day or two.

    So far I have Hex Ezcan, Denali under beak mount for lights, PIAA leds, Speedo Angels protectors for TFT and Nav VI, and Tankslappers paint protection films, and some fender extenders, all sitting in a box...
    And a new HP GSA also in a box, but that box is in Hamburg waiting for a ship right now, so nothing installed.
    I'd be interested knowing if anyone tries one of the cheap Chinese side stand foot enlargers ($14 or so on Ebay) and can confirm it fits properly.... even though they say they fit the 1250 some of the feedback suggests they aren't fitting well. I'd prefer not to pay $80 plus for a little piece of aluminum to bolt on the end of my stand.

    I purchased my black 2019 BMW R1250GS on Groundhog Day and had several accessories added including cross-spoked wheels, fog lights, enduro foot pegs, comfort rider and passenger seat, cylinder head covers, steel engine guards, frame guard, plastic radiator guards, small BMW tank bag, Atacama soft luggage (both side and top cases) and BMW Navigator VI GPS. I also ordered some Ram mounts and a new Adaptiv Technologies handlebar mount for my radar detector (from my previous K1300S). Now I just need a break in the weather to take it out for a ride!

    What head covers and engine guards do you have?
    Im looking to replace original crash bars and add cylinder head covers. I saw the touratech CRASH BAR REINFORCEMENT KIT for 1200GS, but still not available for 1250. Original crash bar seems to miss one extra bar to create real cage around cylinder, unlike SW-motech, altrider etc...

    I've added a Z Technic headlight guard, SW Motech Evo adjustable footpegs, a $20 Chinese sidestand foot enlarger from Amazon, fits great and was on Prime, so received in two days. Also added a MAMO front fender extender, have ordered a pair of BMW oem head guards, but they're not available yet, I may go with MAMO if BMW takes too long, but they're not available either yet. Transferred the SW Motech tank ring from my R1200RS to the GS to use my city bag, and went with black Vario side bags. OEM radiator guards too. I usually put a slip on can on my bikes, but not sure I will on the GS.

    Installed:
    Altrider headlight guard
    Altrider side stand foot enlarger (low suspension GSA)
    MAMO hand guards

    To be installed in the next few weeks:
    Denali CanSmart light and horn kit (only doing a set of D4s)
    Aftermarket final drive guard and swingarm slider
    Factory radiator guards
    MAMO head guards (when available)
    Altrider lower crash bar reinforcements (maybe)

    I'm also doing Bumot EVO panniers and their tool box for factory racks. I already have their Extremada soft bags which fit great.

    I'm looking for the lower crash bar reinforcements, but no one made it yet. I asked touratech, not yet available.
    Where did you see those?

    And to think my 2 riding buddies think I’ve bought a lot of “farkles” for my bike.

    • OEM black aluminum panniers - Black film from humvee graphics on the panniers. Just for protection really and the film blends well with the factory black pannier. Couple areas that show I’m still a novice when it comes to installing film
    • NAV 6
    • Film kit on tank from Tankslapper
    • Speedo Angels gloss protector on Nav 6 and matte on the TFT
    • SW Motech barbacks that move the bars up and back. Pretty noticeable in that I no longer have shoulder discomfort after riding a couple hundred miles
    • MAM fender extender and mud sling

    Soon to purchase:
    • Sargent seats
    • Fastway footpegs - probably go for the ones larger than stock
    • Someone’s head guard, would maybe like something from Ricochet
    • Smaller tinted BMW OE screen for summer

    Potential purchases:
    • Altrider Lexan (or whatever the clear plastic is called) headlight guard
    • MRA X-Creen for if/when I have trips with a lot of highway miles
    • Billie Brake light

    Striker...did your under beak Denali mount go on OK? I had one that I pulled off my 2016 but I ended up having to modify it quite a bit to make both the lights and the bracket clear the plastics. Be interested in how you made out.

    Like my post says, my bike is still enroute from the factory, so my parts are all in a box waiting to go on. I'll let you know when it gets installed but another inmate on another post put one on with no issues, although the D4's he installed on it were fairly close to touching the fairing, but still ok.

    Yes I wish I had added these or the Touratech brand before I had multiple get offs.

    On both sides I had to remove the lower crash bars and attempted to bend them back to original.........you can guess how well that went.

    I purchased the TT brand and just installed them last week, the left side was a struggle, the right I had to remove the lower bars and fit everything as a completed unit, being very careful not to over stress the bolts that go into the aluminum engine casing.

    Once of prevention as they say......

    I'm waiting for Outback Mototech to finalize their design for crashbars and will replace the OEMs with theirs. I had the OM on another bike and they are top notch
