Your top five accessories are?..

  1. 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 etc etc...

    Really appreciate any responses...

    Cheers

  11. It is actually for the front wheel. Keeps more crap off the pipes and engine, makes it easier to clean.

  15. Surprised no one's done this yet... Please santa, I've been a good boy this year... Can I add Suzi Perry to the back of my bike...

    BBC.

    She IS bike related at least - being the BBC's pitlane commentator/interviewer for MotoGP! :roll:

    If not her, then a new bike (675 or 848), Jardine pipes, quickstep gearshift (if not fitted), anti-chip shield/armour and a never ending supply of tryres to wear out... :LOL:
