Probably the least expensive, and maybe best built, thing Kuryakyn sells is their "Universal Throttle Boss" under $15; comes in two sizes. Wrap 50% on the grip, 50% on the bar end and it's both a rest and a "cruise-control" - you must be comfortable learning to roll back the throttle...I have had two in 15 years...I replaced the first one only because "some body" must'a needed mine, real bad....I am certain it's still working for them...
A hard wired, fused, battery tender connector, especially if you have anything extra that drws power, like a radio clock...
I bent a key once, unlocking the seat. I now carry an extra in the ziplock with my reg. and ins. card. I also created a pull tab at the seat lock with a zip-tie and a short piece of bailing wire... now I don't need to use my key to unlock the seat on my Road*, I just reach under the seat. I pulled the tank and inspected that cable; lubed it; worked it...finally realized the farm-boy fix was easier, cheaper, and works better than stock. Just wear your gloves or be sure you don't touch the back of the rear cylinder head... :-(
Welcome and enjoy! I love it here...especially at "work"!
