Thanks all, really appreaciate the advice and have spent most of the day looking at parts and mods. I think i agree with Marty7 and after having spent loads on mods on all my bikes in the past, I bought the S1000r as it looks good as standard so probably going to add rad and oil cover (as 1 stone could set me back a small fortune) and see how i get on and review in a few months or if I decide to travel more than the usual  20 miles a day ro work. Cheers

Never bothered with a tail tidy as I can't see that from where I sit!

I agree, I went with a Yoshimura pretty much out of the box, easy install and in my opinion, completes the bike.

These are some of the mods I did and I tried with going with mods that add protection or little mods to finish it off

I've pretty much followed what Mad Ad has done - added a Sat Nav power cable and mount but that's pretty much it - end can is the only other thing I tend to add

Using the Yoshimura it requires a plate frame to make it rigid, I made a flat aluminum plate with appropriate holes and a bump out. The Bump out is for the stock plate light housing. With this there is no need to cut the wire harness and it looks good. I have these available for a nominal cost that work with USA size plates.
