Have you been told that you need this or you must have that Motorcycle Accessory for your bike? It happens to all of us at one point or another after starting out to ride and even after riding for many years and meeting new people, we have all heard that line many times. But, what are 5 Motorcycle Accessory Must Haves When Riding your bike? We at AMERiders will give you 5 of our favorites to have.
Ladies, most of you will agree with me when I say it is hard to get our men to ask for directions, guys we love you but it’s true you would get lost and still not want to ask for directions heck some of us ladies are just as guilty of this as well. So our first one is a GPS/Cell Phone holder this Adjustable, Waterproof GPS/Smartphone Mount is what you need to keep you on track no matter where you are headed. It has great features including a sun visor and interior cushion that will fit larger Smartphone’s; water-resistant bag; and handle bracket mount with a rubber-covered clamp. Measures 7-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ x 2″. and what’s more it comes gift boxed so you can give it to your favorite “I don’t need to ask for directions” person whether they be male or female.
Our next favorite Motorcycle Accessory to carry along is a tool bag, as you never know when you are going to have something break on your bike or see one of our brothers or sisters broke down on the side of the road and needing a hand. Tool bags will fasten to your bikes forks for easy reach when needed, most of our tool bags are universally fitting so that they will fit just about any make and model of bike. This 10″ Motorcycle Tool Bag is one of those tool bags it not only is universal fitting for most bikes, but it includes a hard sheet inside the bag, features a heavy duty quick release, is 100% waterproof as well as being UV protected to keep it from turning white in extreme heat and will hold its shape as well which is good.
The third item we like to have on our bike is a stylish set of saddlebags, they can help carry a load of items that you may need in a pinch or if you decided you want to take a day or night trip they will work for that too. We like to keep various different things in ours, such as a rain suit important paperwork (that doesn’t fit in the wallet) and any other things that may be emergency items or anything you want to carry with you that you may need extra shirts, pants or even forbid underoos. This set of saddlebags is waterproof, universally fitting to most makes and models of bikes as are most of our saddlebags, and has a heavy duty quick release and tie downs for extra security for your bike and many other great features.
The next item we love to carry on our bike is a Get Back Whip to ensure that we are seen while riding on the streets, highways and open roads. Stylish braided whips like this Red & Black one are a great way to make every effort you can to be seen and not run over, years ago motorcycles were the only vehicles with the headlight on all the time and people noticed us, now almost every vehicle made comes with daytime running lights. Our whips come with a quick release clip that can be attached to either the brake or clutch lever, and a few of them like this one even come with a small silver skull tied to fringe for extra attention when needed, and sometimes it is.
The Last Motorcycle Accessory but not certainly not least is a cupholder, to hold your favorite beverage to keep you hydrated while you ride. Keeping hydrated while you ride is important! Believe it or not, most bikers don’t think about dehydration being a problem when riding, we just get thirsty, however, it is very important. Dehydration can cause headaches, disorientation, heat stroke, muscle cramps which can suck when the throttle is wide open, loss of concentration, drowsiness and nausea which is bad for the guy or gal behind you, all of which can cause crashes.
So stay hydrated all is needed is a bottle of water attached to your bike with a cup holder like this one when you stop at a red light or feel a bit thirsty pull over and take a swig it only takes a second or two.
There are many more items we like to carry with us, but these are just a few of our favorites check out our For the bike section for other items, versions, colors, and variations of these items that will help you customize your bike while also helping you to stay hydrated, keeping your tools close at hand and more.
We would like to give a big shout out our fellow Floridian that purchased the tool bags we thank you very much!
And as always….
