Yes, comfort goodies. Highway pegs/boards and possibly rider/passenger boards if the bike doesn't already have them; a rider backrest and for sure a sheepskin or gel pad for the seat(s). The 1100 is in it's 30's now, so some accessories may be a tad difficult to source, but e-bay and goldwingparts.com etc are good spots to start.

I always go for comfort & performance as add ons. Mostly what the guys have already said.

Do not forget the .50 caliber front fender mounted machine gun for clearing those pesky traffic jams.

don't forget the gold plated deer whistle. Seriously though, when I bought my fist Wing, an 85 LTD it had Markland highway boards and I loved them for straight line highway cruising. Going to add highway pegs to my 1500. Also depending on where you live, temps and season, I use an Alaska Sheepskin for winter riding and a beaded cover in the summer to keep my butt from burning up. It's amazing how much ventilation they provide.

I am still adding to my bike, with the highway pegs being first and then moving to areas that have to do with safety/visibility. I added a rear wing with modulating brake light, mirrors with the turn signals built in (muth signal), and driving lights. The cup holder I see as very important for riding in the heat - dehydration can get you before you know it, but of course a CamelBak would beat that.

Bottom line, there is always something to add.
