Frame protectors from HD, to protect the frame when on a jack.
They are still brand new in the box 6 years later....LOL

Factory saddlebag lid organizers are to small to be useful. Also I love the performance increase from my power duals headers, but am not crazy about the look of the crossover.

I had the fairing and saddle bag bib covers to protect my paint... It has done more damage than my wife could ever do with her boot.

Also, bought the chrome ring for my head light - talk about a piece of ****! There's a huge gap between the lip that curls towards the light, bout 1"1/2. I can only imagine the amount of bugs that are caught up in there now. It looks great from the side and all, but imberrassing when up close.

I regret I didn't think through my Boom amp location a little better, or maybe the amp altogether. I got a personalized tag and also decided to move the tour pak rearward and it turns out the amp has to come loose to do either because of no access to any of the nuts - PIA Wish I had an amp in the fairing instead of under the TP

Great, now I gotta take my saddlebag covers off & look under them, been on there for about a year & a half.

I was thinking I'd better take mine off to look, too, but as they say, "ignorance is bliss." I think I'll just leave them on. I like the look toning down the scarlett red.
