If you had to pick just one, what is the best accessory you have bought for your C10?

Rick - define "accessory." Something needed? Or something wanted?  :017:

I have to pick one?   I would say foot peg lowers from murphs.  It made it much more comfortable for me.

Just want to be sure what Rick is asking. I mean, some people think oil, brakes and tires are accessories.  ;D

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.

Replaced stock windscreen from stocker to a Cee Bailey with vent, way less turbulence.
But ZRX front end was the best upgrade hands down.

1. EZ-pass for toll booths.  No question a necessity if you go through tolls regularly, and mine has a big M so it pays the bike price (don't use it with a cage! They're free so get the right one for every vehicle).

2.  Pile of bungee cords, I've used them too many times already to hold pieces of the bike on the way home from errors.

3. Trunk, have my helmet & jacket in there.  Hoping to avoid the gamut of "hey, you rode your bike today" comments.  Still expect the questions like  "Hey, did you ride your bike today?" because they ask even during a blizzard or whatever.
