Let's see...Givi Trunk, KG bags & bag/trunk mounting system, straight highway bar with fold-up pegs,
Vetter Bullet windshield, & LED headlight (everyone needs one on a 500).

The 83-83 had the iconic rectangle headlight, so when I put in the LED bulb in the original position,
it put all the light in the air when on Low...so I flipped the rectangle over and it focused the light
in front of the bike where it should be. It's easily 4 times as bright as a stock light,
but properly angled, it doesn't blind oncoming traffic.

Mounted a Kryptonite bicycle lock on the frame, you can see it on the Pilot side,
it's a little large, but it fits perfectly thru the holes on the front brake.
It definitely lets folks know that bike ain't going anywhere without a lot of work.

I actually have a brake lock/alarm for mine I plan on installing when it runs again.
