New bike and needed some advice on which ones and brands from you guys please.

Top Box /plate/frame - Kawasaki's nice but pricey looks like. Givi or others? Priority as I'm road tripping down to central Baja, Mexico.
Skid/Bash plate?-
Bought Radiator guard already
Crash bars?
Engine guards?
Sliders maybe too?
Center stand?

Not sure brands, value, easy to install etc?

I live outside San Diego and gravel road to home, and often go to Baja (which is mostly paved, but some dirt gravel here and there) highway, street and gravel road up to home.
Thank you so much for your time and expertise!!! Any input is very much appreciated!

Sliders yes. I use the ones Kawasaki sells. I heard that crash bars can cause problems if you have an accident.

Center stand?
I think a centre stand is a good idea: making chain adjustment, tyre checking and wheel removal much easier.

I have two sports bikes, one I use a paddock stand on, and the other I have to use a scissor-jack. I just bought a cafe racer clone which has a centre stand - man, I had forgotten just how handy they are.
