Cheap and Easy Modifications to Improve Your Touring Bike
You don’t need to drop major bucks on your bike to get the perfect ride. We have three easy mods for Touring Harleys that cost under $100.
Bike riding season is finally here. After a long winter, conditions are perfect to hit the road on your favorite Harley-Davidson motorcycle. It is also a great time to work on your bike. Let’s face it, there’s always a little something we like to tweak to get our motorcycle just right.
Of course, modifications can be a costly business. So, we have compiled three minor and cheap modifications for Touring models that we found in the expansive H-D Forums. And these projects won’t break the bank but will definitely improve your ride: adding a push button fuel door, installing floorboard extenders, and replacing the original grips. The article contains more detailed how-to information, and you can check it out here.
We chose Harley-Davidson’s Touring line as it is a wildly popular bike, and the lineup offers a solid variety of bikes that are perfect road warriors.
Touring bikes definitely are comfortable for road tripping, and they offer a smooth ride. The Milwaukee Eight motor offers reduced vibration, it rides cooler, and has a hell of a lot of power. Whether it’s a Road Glide or a Road King, the Touring family remains a popular choice. Plus, it remains a Harley that has a lot of modification options.
So check out our ideas. And let us know what mods you would suggest, or what changes you’ve made to customize your ride.
