I like to observe other bikers and usually get a chuckle out of trying to match the biker to the bike. It's a fun pastime when we are sitting out on the deck on Sundays at Cocodries on Navarre Beach where they have a big biker party every Sunday. Oh, by the way Navarre Beach is in the Florida Panhandle! Anyway, back to my story. I remember one biker in particular that was easy to match up to his bike. He was an older buy who looked like a mountain man with a huge long beard and everything he had on had fringe on it. Guess what? So did his bike! There are many accessories that you can get to customize your motorcycle and make it more unique and original so that it doesn't have that straight off the showroom clinical look to it.
I don't know about you, but the whole reason to own a Harley is to stand out from everyone else on the little rice rockets! You may have other reasons. You may want to add an accessory to your bike because it fits with you and your taste or for practical or functional needs like a luggage rack or a windshield. Thank God that everyone has different tastes in choosing ways to customize their Harley.
If not they would still all look the same and not only would it be self defeating but a waste of money as well. Some people opt for minimal customization on their bike and others go all out. There really is no right or wrong, you just do what is right for you. After all it is your bike and your personality. Heck, I just saw one the other night that had blue neon lights all in the motor, it looked cool but I don't know that I would do it. When it comes to deciding on how to choose accessories for your Harley, I would suggest that you decide on what you want out of your bike.
Sit back and have a look at yourself. What kind of biker are you anyway? If you are the speed demon show off type that wants everyone to see how fast his bike is you may want to look at getting your engine rebuilt for increased horsepower. You can never go wrong with a lot of Harley chrome either, that just says Harley and right when you think you have enough of chrome, you find some more in that motorcycle accessory catalog. Almost every Harley Davidson motorcycle owner at some time or another has thought about adding an accessory to their bike.
It isn't very often you see a stock Harley Davidson! Don't let yours be one.
