How to Customize Your Motorcycle

Customize Motorcycle Style

Motorcycle enthusiasts love to express individual style through customization. American V-Twin motorcycles like Harley Davidsons are fun to customize, because they can take on so many different looks. Serious riders like to get highest possible performance out of their motorcycle by replacing stock parts with quality aftermarket parts. J&P Cycles has a large variety of upgrades to enhance your ride with style, comfort, and performance.

Anyone who says you they don’t care about looking cool on their motorcycle is lying. But, no one wants to ride through aches and pain either. When customizing your motorcycle it is important to choose upgrades that increase comfort, convenience, and performance while giving your bike a unique custom look tailored to your personal style.

    @ Ken Good points all Ken. However, I would add takinh an MSF course to actually have thing demonstrated to you and actually feel the reactions from the motorcycle. New riders should take the BRC, more experienced riders should take the BRC2 and even riders with years of experience can benefit from the ARC. I still ride with people who, after years of experience, still skim their feet during low speed maneuvers. It is at those time that the Rider Coach in me comes out. “Pick up your feet”.

    Some bikes have quality parts from the get-go; like my old BMW K100RS. Another category for customization should be reliability. Many of the “add-on / after-market” customizations often do not show. For example, my HD SPORTY has a BARNETT SCORPION Lock-up clutch, BAKER transmission, SHORAI Lithium Battery, RUSSELL cables and hoses, a hefty 2-gauge battery ground strap, one-of-a-kind USB power tap, KURAYKIN Smart-Phone mount, ICOM IC-2300H radio transceiver, heated grips, and a HORNET deer avoidance “whistle”. This Spring I am considering a custom GENTEX Hybrid Full Display Mirror System { ). The process is on-going and I doubt that I will ever have my Bike “just the way I want it. Collision avoidance technology tied to the GENTEX Mirror System will be the next step along with a monitor system for battery life, engine temp, etc.

    Nice article.

    First of all you will never rule the road so put that out of your head.

    Second of all, if you want to start out right buy some good reading material and videos on “SAFETY” and learn to ride the bike properly so you don’t look like a fool when you crash.
    I recommend Ride like a Pro videos.

    Then, after you buy the safety stuff buy good gear. If you cannot afford good gear, DON’T RIDE!

    Then, once you begin to ride figure it out quick that there is always some guy out there you wants to impress and he will always have a bigger, nicer, prettier and more invested into bike than you do and he will make sure you know that.

    So, it’s not a bragging rights contest it’s about enjoying the sport (and yes it is a sport) of motorcycling.

    And please for the sake of all that is good, JOIN the AMA. If you don’t you are just a poser in my mind.
