Any suggestions as to where to connect for power that won't trip issues with the rest of the electrical?
If you are more comfortable, tapping into the rear aux. power socket is fine.

Get A Fuzblock or one of the other power distribution blocks run your stuff off of. EZPZ.

The Wing is available with standard transmission, but after riding one I lost interest. Too many shortcomings compared to the BMWs.

Were going for 18000. If you rode one its a No brainer.

Where did you see that? When I test rode one last year at Russellville Honda in Arkansas, one of the highest volume and lowest price Wing dealers in the country, their prices were about 24k which was a couple grand less than other dealers. $18,000 is hard to imagine even for left-over 2018 models.

No, I was unaware of the event or I would have attended.

After talking to the dealer the major/only price difference was whether or not you added any one of the 3 different 719 options (seat, wheels, engine covers). I didn't think they were worth the extra $$ so I decided to skip all of the 719 options and went with fully loaded everything else. Got a good deal and the dealer experience was really great. I dealt with the general manager and part owner of the dealership, really nice guy.

So guess who's now in the market for a better low rise seat, soft grips and a horn that someone with in two feet could actually hear? :-)
Congrats on the new bike. What color and what dealer did you get it from. Post some pictures of the new addition.

All have less than 50 miles and as far as I can tell the same features and options. Am I missing something here or should I just go for the lowest price? All feedback is appreciated.

Gateway BMW in StL has 2019 RTs with all the options for $20-24k with color matched top box included in the price. Check out their web site. Call and ask for Honz or Tommy. Tell them Tom B sent you.

You're clearly missing something rather huge if you see that range of prices all with the same features and options.
