Top Accessories for Riders of BMW Motorcycles

Jul 24, 2008
BMW motorcycle owners are very particular about their bikes, like other motorcycle owners. But in some cases, the riders of BMW motorcycles take their fastidiousness to a larger degree, often pampering their bikes with the best materials and accessories that can be found anywhere.

This meticulousness in their care for their motorcycles has led some companies and individuals to develop accessories that are only for BMW motorcycles. Here are some of the top items that owners of these bikes can get to enhance their rides.

First of all, and maybe most exciting, are custom windshields. The owners of BMW motorcycles are lucky in that they can get custom windshields made by someone who used to make aircraft windshields. Because of this, these windshields are particularly well-designed. Called Cee Bailey windshields, these can be ordered in custom lengths and in a variety of tints. All are free of distortions that are common in all other windshields, and all are thicker than traditional windshields. Cee Bailey windshields can be made for all types of BMW motorcycles. To find them, do an online search for "Cee Bailey BMW motorcycles windshields".

Another accessory that many owners of BMW motorcycles choose to purchase is Russell Day-Long Touring Saddles. Granted, these custom-made seats are not only made for BMW motorcycles; however, a large percentage of riders who purchase the Day-Long Touring Saddles are BMW owners.

The Russell Day-Long Touring Saddles can be customized in many ways. The manufacturers take the rider's (or riders') height and weight and looks at pictures of the customer(s) sitting in their previous motorcycle seats. The saddles are then designed to the customer specifications as to color, fabric, style, and other considerations. Customers may also choose to add lumbar support or to make theirs a heated saddle seat. Seats can also be embroidered with a customer name or initials.

Then, of course, most riders of BMW motorcycles want a GPS (global positioning system) unit. But BMW riders don't just want to head to the nearest electronics store to purchase one. No, they want the special GPS unit that was developed by BMW. This is called the BMW Motorrad Navigator GPS.

This unit comes in a few different model types, but all include street maps for every state in the United States, an anti-glare high definition surface so that they can be read even in direct sunlight, and text-to-speech software that enables the rider to listen to directions rather than having to take his eyes off of the road to read them.

Most BMW owners also want to get customized helmets and other riding gear. Customization is really the name of the game when it comes to BMW motorcycles. Helmets can be sized to fit larger heads, which can be quite helpful for many people. Other riders prefer to have unique riding jackets or handlebar grips. Some riders of BMW motorcycles even like to customize their motorcycle parts; items such as tires, chain guards, spark plugs, gauges, and more. Having items made to order is something many BMW owners greatly enjoy.
