Favorite Motorcycle Parts and Accessories for the Enthused Rider

Jul 22, 2008
Adding motorcycle parts and accessories to a motorcycle can be a real thrill. Taking a naked motorcycle and changing it into a custom motorcycle is a source of great pride. What are some favorite motorcycle parts and accessories to add?

If you live in a relatively cold climate area, you can't beat heating elements in the seat and grips. This is especially true if you go on long trips and tours. No one likes a cold butt after driving a hundred or more miles. Adding a heating element to the seat can give your rear and your passengers rear a comfortable toasty feel. The same goes for the hands. It is physically hard to grip and turn precisely when your hands are cold. Anyone who has tried to push buttons with practically frozen hands can tell you how hard it is to drive this way.

More motorcycle parts and accessories to add to your motorcycle is storage. Saddlebags can be great for this. They can come in many different shapes and sizes. There are also sissy bar bags. Any type of storage can add value to a motorcycle. Motorcycle parts and accessories that allow a driver to take a longer tour or even a longer ride can be very desirable to any driver.

Motorcycle parts and accessories that add customization can add to the value of the motorcycle. A custom paint job and custom fenders make a motorcycle look fantastic. If you go for the whole flame theme, a black tank with flames painted across the top and assorted flames on the fenders, there are many motorcycle parts and accessories that can go with this theme. Some of them include matching helmets, and jackets. You can even get tires to matched a particular theme.

Custom handlebars can make for a unique motorcycle. Motorcycle parts that make a motorcycle unique can certainly drive up the value of a motorcycle. You can add ape hangers, beach bars, or cruiser handlebars for added comfort. When you have decided on what type of handlebars you want, you can decide on grips. Grips can be heated, studded, black, chrome, and fat or skinny. The more comfortable the motorcycle is the more you will love driving it.

You can also add lights to your motorcycle to give it higher visibility and added aesthetic value. Lights can come in a multitude of colors and can outline the base of your motorcycle, but some states and counties have restrictions on the type of lights that can be added to a motorcycle so be sure to check with them before adding any lights.

Adding an audio system can add to the value and give it a more technologically advanced look. A great sound system is a bonus whether it is in a car or in a decked out motorcycle. In addition to an audio system, you can add a communication system to radio your friends or make new friends on the way to Sturgis.
