Unless you're towing it behind you, I don't think a "parts bike" should count as an accessory.   ;D

How about if I claim it as garage art?
I just like it when I lose that odd ball screw I dont have to stop for 2-3 days looking in the dark corners of the garage

There's not much left of the original '91 Connie but, absolutely, without a doubt, the Vista-cruise throttle lock. My right hand can go numb in less than 10 minutes sometimes. By letting me flex my hand and get circulation going again it has become a must-have. Heated grips  would be the next on the list, followed by.........

#1 - Russell Day-Long saddle     Bergmen SPOOFAK adaptor    Russell Day-Long saddle     Bergmen SPOOFAK adaptor   Russell Day-Long saddle 

#2 - Bergmen SPOOFAK adaptor   Russell Day-Long saddle    Bergmen SPOOFAK adaptor   Russell Day-Long saddle       Bergmen SPOOFAK adaptor

#3 - murph's dual-beam headlight kit

#4 - PIAA 910 110W driving lights

#5 - GIVI rear topcase

#6 - Rifle windshield to replace OEM

As one can tell, I'm hard-pressed to say for sure between Dan's SPOOFAK and the Russell. The only thing that sways it toward the Russell is that when I get on the bike, it tends to be for longer distances, so the Russell has really proven its worth.

Then again, with the SPOOFAK I spend less time on oil changes so I can spend more time in the saddle.....so maybe the SPOOFAK is the better choice...?   :-[ :-[ :-[

Then again, I'm only getting started on the "accessorizing".....  :))   Gotta get the bike ready for the next 25 years.   ;)

Along that line, a credit card.

Hard to pick one between cruise control and the RDL seat and Genmar peg lowers.

hahahahaha.
  ...To me, an accessory is something that is added and is not a replacement for something originally on the bike. Let's look at Ricks example. He changed the "pipes" (not sure what he means - muffler? full exhaust?)  To me that is not an "accessory," that is replacing one needed component with another. That is an upgrade, not an accessory. Now if he had added a chrome cover to the original muffler, then that is an "accessory."

My favorite accessory? A source for music. Doesn't matter what or how, just having it on the bike, and powered by the bike.
 :)

Based on that definition, mine would be the Canyon Cages/Top Block combination (because I haven't got around to fully removing the cages).  I had a slow speed low side last summer.  Saved a bunch by having these.  Ended up with a some scraped paint on the cages and one mirror.   :motonoises:

For the ZG1000 the best solution is the audiovox css100.  It's available @ Murphskits.com.  Follow the install instructions on the site, as the unit is a 'universal' system, and can be properly set up for the Concours with a few tweaks.  Still a top notch acc...  lovin' my CC.
