If you are making me stick with 2 than I'm with the Doc only Highway Pegs(not Boards) & Drivers Backrest. Followed closely by Iso Grips & Xtall windshield.

As a matter of personal "had to" I put the highway boards on her before she left the showroom, and my Inno XM radio. The trunk spoiler was high on the list, but it settled for third place. I figure in a couple more years I should be close to having the bike blinged out the way I want it. Sticking to functionality this time rather than tinsel. I'd rather ride than polish, got enough trophies from the other two Wings taking up space in the attic.

I have fog lights, trunk rack, rear spoiler and iso pegs which for me were important. Make the ride more enjoyable and the bike easier to see. I also like the 12v outlet to power my GPS since I don't have one built in.

Backrest and Highway pegs or boards. First purchase I made , however, were the Grip Puppies. They were only $11.00. The rest of items had to get the OK as they were substantially more than $11.00.

I folllowed Chopin's lead and got the grip puppies first. I may have gone a little overboard as they were followed, in order, by:

Front Fairing Chrome Air Intakes
Universal LED Battery Gauge
Highway Pegs
Half Cover
Hondaline Factory CB Antenna
Hand Wings
4" replacement arms for the pegs
Utopia Backrest
Honda Factory OEM LED Lighted Trunk Spoiler
Kisan TailBlazer Rear Brake Running & Spoiler Modulator
Chrome Luggage Rack
Chrome Star Washers
Deluxe Luggage Rack Bag w/Rain Cover
3pc Deluxe Carpets
3pc Deluxe Liner (Bags)
LED Foglights
J&M Motorcycle Helmet Headset HSECD584
Z-Style Required Lower Headset Hook Up Cords
2 Single Screw In Fold Down Flag Pole
Chrome Lower Cowl Covers
Chrome Rotor Covers
Kuryakyn Front Reflector LED Conversion

The only things left that I want to add are the stealth lights, vertical hitch, cooler rack and a CB unit. But don't hold me to that if something comes along that is really cool... :D

Grip Puppies
Highway Pegs w/correct length arms
Utopia Backrest
Spoiler & Modulator
Foglights

The last two entries are for safety's sake, with the priority to the spoiler and the modulator.

I do NOT recommend anything but a Utopia backrest if you are riding two up. Your riding partner will NOT be happy with the bars.

If you plan to have any decent conversations while riding two-up, then the headsets would follow in order. My having the headset means that I can listen to music and not miss any notices from the Navi system.

Oh, and my list is part and parcel in preparation for my plans to do the four corners tour next year.

I have to admit those LED fog lights on Rapier's bike are something to behold in my rear view mirror. I remarked to him that they make the headlights look dim by comparison.

At the risk of going outside the box with the OP, here's my personal "must have" wish list.
1) CB radio (Honda) and passenger controller (J&M)
2) LED fog lights (Honda)
3) Utopia backrest
4) Kuryakin trunk and saddlebag trim marker lights
5) Colour matched trunk underside (Honda) spoiler/fairing*
6) License plate bracket suitable for our goofy sized Alberta plates unknown brand, or style/finish..I'll know it when I see it. Anything to make the plate area "nicer".

* Honda only lists the lower trunk spoiler up to '05 so my colour isn't available from Hondaline source. I'd have to get an '05 part and have it painted YR292 (mesquite brown metallic, close to titantium but note quite the same). The paint and clear coat is easy and avialable from several sources, chosing which colour to start with and prep is the issue. Black may darken the finished result, and silver may be too light. Can't get a plain unfinished one either or I could prime, base, colour, and clear the thing...argh. Any thoughts from someone that's more experienced with painting?

New Wing with $1000.00 in Accessories

My new Wing came with a dealer offer of $1000.00 dollars worth of accessories. I don't care too much for bling on a bike, IMHO less is usually best. I opted for the entry level Wing because I figured the more a bike has, the more things that can go wrong.

However, I did manage to use the whole accessory budget: I opted for a Trunk Rack and LED Fog Lights as the big ticket items. Also ordered were Fog Lights Cover Lens, a Cooler Bag, a weather seat cover, extra light bulbs, cigarette plug-in socket, handlebar ends, license tag frame, coin holder and a few other misc items...should all be in before Christmas.

I wanted to get a light bar for the trunk but the trunk rack I wanted can not be mounted with the light bar.

I asked the dealer to knock a $1000.00 dollars off the purchase price instead of the accessories but he said no!

As to the orginal question, Road Pegs are a necessity for me as well as a back rest, neither available on the list of accessories offered.

I removed the pegs from my Voyager that I traded in and order new clamps from RIVCO (1" 1/4" clamps vs. 1" clamps for the Wing). They assured me that they'll marry up to the Wing. I ordered a backrest from Utopia and it should be here on the 12/20.

I think my Wing will be just as comfortable for me as my last bike once I get it set-up.:eek:
Thanks,
T-Rex
