Other Necessities For a GT

Just ordered an AltRider engine protection bar, which I really consider a necessity to have before doing much riding. I'm considering the rear bag protection bars, but don't much like how they look, especially if one were riding the bike without the bags, so I'm kind of divided on whether I want them or not. What are people's opinions on those? I see a couple vendors also sell heat sheets for under the bags to protect against heat. Why didn't BMW put some on the bags, if this is a problem with that? I've had those come with the bike on older models. Do I really need that on this one? How about a fat foot? How's the standard kickstand foot, and which of the aftermarket ones is the best? The other stuff like tank bags and other farkles can wait until I see what other people have, but I'm trying to get the necessities right now.
