    Hi,

    I've got one too and love it. Mine was used with 4K miles (7K km) on it with 2 years left on warranty. Similar situation - around US$13K taxes in (exchange rate varies, of course).

    Mine came with an Akrapovic slip on and all the options. I've added an Ilmberger hugger purchased through Sandbar Composites in the UK. There is a US supplier but even with shipping, Sandbar beat the price. I've also added valve cover protectors but the biggest improvement occurred when I swapped out my bars for HeliBars from A&S cycles (google A&S BMW).

    Simple to fit and they place you slightly up, slightly back, and slightly wider - about an 1" to 1.5" in each direction. Handling difference is hugely improved, posture is still sporty but relaxed enough to take all pressure off the hands at speed. Also, the wider bars make the bar-end weights supremely effective in eliminating vibration.

    Finally, take a look at Boxertrix.com based in the UK. I've joined both (same username) and there are some of the same faces there as well as a lot of really experienced UK and EU fellows with (IMO) a better sense of comeraderie and humour (note Canadian spelling).

    If you look at getting HeliBars, I've posted my installation notes over there at Boxertrix. Should take you half an hour at most to do the job and you'll be grinning forever.

    Best regards,
    Ian (EenyBear)
