Picking up new bike today

Will be picking up my new sporty 1200 this afternoon,
Other than the owners manual,service manual, quart of oil, polishing kit is there any other recommended items I should get?
This is my first Harley, I have had another bike, Vulcan 500 and had gotten the listed items for that bike, but never a Harley Davidson bike.

If the sporty needs it, get a spanner wrench for the rear shocks and ride out of the dealership before they get any more of your cash!

Congrats! Just ride it so you can feel the need for accessories.
Mine sporty ships out today (!!!) from the MoCo. Should see it in a week or two.
I will do my break-in mileage bone stock, then see what I like, don't like, and go from there.
Shiney side up!
