Need accessories (want to buy)

I visited Montreal's motorcycle show last saturday and my mind is now set on a Versys 1000 (it won over FJR1300). Looking to find a new 2017 because of the black color.

I know how I am and I will probably buy quite some accessories in the coming weeks. Because used items always made some sense to me I would like what you guys have for sale.
Please let me know here (or by PM) what you have for sale and your asking price. Pictures are always prefered.

Thanks in advance!

NOTE: Be warned that I am a curious guy and that I'm frequently asking questions...

I would check out Kijiji for Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal. A motorcycle trailer is only $15/day from UHaul to rent to go pick up your new bike.

Found a very low KM 2017 demo locally that I bought last friday.
The hunt for accessories will begin pretty soon.

Congratulations! Happy new bike day! Some unsolicited suggestions for the future....
Oxford heated grips (you'll appreciate these in the Canadian climate, also Kawasaki brand heated grips suck - make sure you get the model with the same length as the stock grips)
Crash bars
Luggage

As a general rule SW-Motech make the highest quality accessories followed by Givi.

KOSO Apollo heated grips

I haven't tried the other brands, but I installed the KOSO ones onto my AZ 650, LOVE 'em, and bought another set to take N to install onto my BC 650. I HIGHLY recommend them!

Good advises!
Luckily, my bike was a demo ridden by the shop owner; he gets himself a new Versys 1000 each summer.
So, the demo I bought already is equipped with Oxford heated grips, Givi topcase (with pad/backrest) and a 12V outlet. I'm pretty happy as those are three accessories I intended to get anyway.
