It is highly important that you “pimp” out your Harley Davidson if you want to look like a real rider. I hate to say it, but there’s so many posers riding bikes nowadays that just having a Harley isn’t enough. It’ll get you an all right girl, maybe, and a couple of, “Cool, man” comments from the side of the road. But for the most part it’s all a bit passé now. Once you have your bike, you’ll want to get the right Harley Davidson accessories in order to really take things to the next level.
Besides the obvious safety gear, and the hog itself, this article will tell you about what to consider and look for when accessorizing. Things like a helmet, riding pants, a jacket, and good riding boots are all usually necessary to even really get up and going in the first place, so we won’t really touch on those things much. I’ll assume you already own your own Harley and know how to ride it. If not, go learn and get out of here.
The first thing I’d think about is getting a real solid windshield, with trim and all. This will both protect it from scratches and other damaging roadside problems, and make it look a lot more streamlined. With all of these Harley Davidson accessories you always want to kill two birds with one stone: better style and higher quality riding power.
Then you might want to look at getting a backseat pad. This will make for a much more comfortable motorcycle. You’ve got to ride in relaxation because you’re going to be on that seat for hours at a time sometimes. You can choose your own style of seat pad, so whatever is your fancy go ahead and deck it out. This will also help anyone who may be riding along with you; hopefully a fine-looking woman.
Finally think about getting some type of extra storage. This can be a sissy bar bag or a saddlebag. Obviously, you don’t have a lot of places to store stuff while biking, so that’s where these bags come in. They’re inexpensive and, as always, customizable to your own tastes and the style and color of your hog. This will really make it a lot less of a hassle to take longer trips, such as day-longs.
If you keep all these suggestions on Harley Davidson accessories in mind, you’ll be riding in a lot better conditions from now on. Pick up one at a time if you wish, and slowly build up your motorcycle.
