  • ..and the top 5 bike accessories are?

    Hey Gang

    I am hopin you wouldn't mind suggesting what your top five bike accessories would be after purchasing a new/new used bike. I realise that the type of bike may mean mixed results, but I'm just hopin for some kinda pattern on consensus. Heres the five I usually consider off the bat:

    1. Slip-On or replacement exhaust system.
    2. Some kinda luggage system i.e tailbag, tankbag, rack etc.
    3. Tank pad protector.
    4. Braided lines.
    5. Hugger and other bling bits, i.e bar ends, reservoir caps, tyre valve psi indicators...

    Really appreciate any responses...

                Braided lines seem to have a huge following. i might have to look into this. As for me, i have only gotten a ventura rack and tank protector, so thats 2
                I was just raising hell I wasn't doing no harm, the cops could not appreciate my natural charm.

                  I'm with Nero. Rad guard and headlight protector would be my first 2. New tyres would be the next, OEM rubber is normally pretty ordinary.

                  90 degree valve stems are nice too. Scotoiler if you plan on doing some decent km's and a puncture repair kit.

                  Hmm that's 6... still all worthwhile. It's not a bad idea to have a First aid kit either.

                  I have all of these on/in my bike, I store the puncture kit and first aid kit in my Givi top case, but if you have enough space you can put it under the seat.
