Adding accessories to your bike

How long did you guys wait before you starting adding parts?
It seems like you could spend just as much on accessories as you did the bike :icon_bigg

very true...

The bike I bought already had a full akropvic system on it and the bike had already been chromed..

but i bought a new set of plastics and gas tank about 5 months down the road after getting the bike...

is this your first bike?

Yes it is my first street bike

Dirt bikes didn't seem to have all of the accessories that the street bikes do

good thing abouta bike is u can buy parts here n there, spend a few hundred here n there and by the time u know it, you got most the stuff you want =D , i think its better buying a part once a month for a few hundred than tryuing to buy it all at once and burn a hole in ur wallet, but hey if ur a baller go for it

The only thing left for me to spend on this aspect is the advanced course of MSF. I'd like to ride for a few months prior to taking this course on my own bike. I've already dumped a small fortune into riding gear.

SAFETY FIRST BRO

I barely added my first accessory last momf. Had the bike for a year. I just did the undertail and the clear led taillights. Still got sliders that need to be installed for a couple of momfs now.

I started off wanting a 1397 kit, then a turbo, then the Brembos, about that time I decided a set of nice wheels would be a nice addition. A couple of years later I've found that there's nothing stock remaining on the bike and I'm still looking at replacing some of the accessories on there now with new ones.

I'm thinking about another stock bike for everyday riding...with a few accessories.

I bought a dealership custom. within a month i put pipes, new air cleaner, and rejet the carb.

I never realized that sport bike guys like to customize thier rides as much as cruiser guys until i joined this forum.
