I just spend over $800 for a trunk rack, spoiler with light, passenger arm rest and some bags. In the past I have bought some other items some really good like the butler beverage system and also driver back rest but some junk that was waste of money like the air paddles that go next to bike didnt even install them and that was almost 200 waste. what are your best and worst?

For the wing, the best would be passenger armrests - because that alone got my wife to agree to long distance riding.

Best accessory money spent
Tailwind trailer (yes, it's that good)
****-O-Pegs
Butler mug

Worst accessory money spent
Kuryakin luggage rack (really didn't need a rack, and because it is Kuryakin it rusts)
Kuryakin passenger arm rests (My wife loves the arm rests, but next time I'll get another brand that doesn't rust as easily)

Best- Centramatics
Worst- well I din't buy them they were on the MC when I bought it, but they are the Kuryakan passenger arm rests. I would put another set on if I could, but they would be some that you could open the trunk without swinging out the rests.

The reason I dislike the armrest is because everytime you want to get in the trunk you have to move the armrest outbound and being a short person this meant that I would have to go around to one side or the other to move them...The cup holder is also an irregular size, too big for a can drink and to small for a can drink with a foam sleve...(If I remember right).
Just one person's opinion...:shrug:..

If I ever need armrest again I'll look at the ones made by Rivco...

My best and worse item is exactly the same . . . Kuryakyn saddlebag and trunk lighted moldings. The plastic lenses (where the LED lights shine through) kept cracking on the first 3 sets I purchased (luckily, they were exchanged under warranty). It took Kury 4 exchanges before they sent me some that have worked without problems for the past 4 years! They are great safety items (when they work!).

Best-Mic Mutes,Baker Hand Wings, my wife likes her Kuryakyn cup holder

Best Looking-Turndown exhaust tips- I really like the looks of them(but 0 functionality)

Can't say I have any bad ones. They are all good in their way but I like the above ones best(still plan on looking into Mic o Pegs)
