    Welcome to the forum!
    There is a pretty complete thread in the Wethead forum-

    A good place to start.

    Welcome to the forum timgun and congrats on your new R1250RT! I put Illumworks risers on my 2018 R1200RT; quality product with great customer service. I still have the stock Option 719 seat on my RT and find it comfortable even on multi day tours. Enjoy your new RT and give us a review after you put some miles on it.

    Welcome to the forum. I bought my 1250 RT in January and have added bar backs (risers) and engine/side case guards from http://www.iliumworks.com/R_1250_RT.cfm

    I still have the stock seat so I cannot add anything about RDL saddle. For long rides, I just use the Alaska Leathers sheep skin covers. I did visit Sargent Seat booth at the National rally in June and will consider them in the future. I can still flat foot with the seat in the low setting and have read that the RDL seats get a little wider, which will not work for me. (5'8" with 30" inseam.)

    Cheers,
    William
