Depending on what type of riding you plan on doing will decide the type of accessories that you will purchase in the future.
I also have a base model and found that it didn't come with CV boot guards for any of the CV boots on the axles. However you will also find that just about all the parts from the higher end models will bolt right to your machine. I purchased some SE boot guards and installed them along with a hitch. The biggest downfall of the base model is no odometer/hour meter or speedometer. I could of cared less about the speedometer but wanted a odometer so I went with a aftermarket electronic one.
