I’m looking at getting a new motorcycle and I have a friend who is also looking at getting one soon too. The process of buying a bike is hard enough but once you have one there are things you should think about adding. Some are just for looks, others are just to make the bike more functional.
What things should you look at for the bike?
- Frame sliders
- Handle Bar Risers
- More Comfortable Seat
- Luggage/Top Case
These are all things that can change a bike from being good to amazing.
In the case of the frame sliders, make a bad moment in the driveway or a slow speed incident something you can pick up the bike and ride away from.
The middle two are obviously dependent on how crouched you sit on the bike and what the stock seat is like. Sometimes you just get used whatever your stock bike has, other times you’re crying after 100 miles in the stock seat. (Sadly I know this from personal experience.)
The last one is what takes a bike from being a toy to a legitimate replacement for a car in most situations. Adding the ability to get those groceries home is simply amazing, a top case also makes those camping trips easier as well.
