Question Spyder accessories - Newbie

I guess you can call me a Spyder newbie although my pick up date is not for another week. I've learned a lot by reading the different forums on the Spyder's site. I purchased a 2012 Spyder RT-S and as Spyder owners you know it comes almost fully equiped with accessories & options. Not as much as the Limited but close. My question is, not counting the features already included, what would be the most desired feature/accessory (not counting a GPS) a new Spyder owner would be his/hers first purchased...???? Thanks ahead of time for your responses..

CB/Intercom system if you going to carry a passenger/trailer if you intend on long trips

yeah floorboards atre much easier on the knees

touring windsheild for better gas milage and handling in crosswinds

sheesh there are soooo many one could think of

lights LOTS OF LIGHTS !!!!!!!!! hehe

best thing to do I think is to ryde it for a bit and become comfy, then start looking

I think most people would agree on the three main things one would buy for their Spyders


1> Safety equipment, such as lighting
2> Things to make the ryde more comfortable, such as floor boards
3> bling ( fun stuff) lights LIGHTS AND MORE LIGHTS. hehe

For me the very thing first I ordered to have installed were HID headlights, then CB/intercom, then the start of my love of bright lights

So ryde your new bike untill you figure out what types of things you want to get done, then start looking around. the biggest issue you find then is everything for Sypders seems to be more expensive than just about any other kind on motorcycle.

So do your homework and ask lots of questions
