Although it isn't a long list I didn't think I had made that many until I started a list:

luggage rack and sissy bar
Clayton Mod
PAIR valve removal
speedo rattle fix
Glen's 3" headlight extension
Glen's A/F tool
Glen's cluth pull relief
Ultimate seats (with backrest)
Kuryakyn 12v socket mounted on handlebars
12v socket mounted in saddle bag
Ram-Mount ball on risers
Ram-Mount ball on handlebar
Hyper-Lites brake and turnsignal lights
new Clearview windshield when wife is riding (to avoid buffeting)
bought an extra windshield and cut it down for when I ride alone
HID lightbar bulbs (35w)
Cramp Buster
studded tank bib (mostly to hold my Gerging controller)

Things I want to do:
seat pin mod
handlebar risers
clock in speedo housing

My wife complains that the accessories for a bike so add up to more than you paid for the bike. She might be true to some extent. I haven't included costs for my new helmt (Nolan N-104) which I also want to purchase the communication system for or the Gerbing heated jacket liner, gloves, and dual controller or the quilted lined chaps. I also want to get her a leather jacket and chap IF she starts riding with me more.

Mods? or Add-Ons?

To me putting a luggage rack on a bike that does not have is is an Add-On and not a Mod.

Removing stock exhaust and installing aftermarket exhausts, that would be a modification ( mod ).

Saddle Bags
Tour Trunk
VHF/UHF Two Way Radio ( FCC License required )

Modifications ( Mods) :
Swapped Stock VTX1800N Exhaust for Stock VTX1800C Exhaust ( this mod was done to facilitate saddle bag install )

Anything that you do that changes the look or performance of a stock strip down bike would be a modification. A fabricatiom mod would be anything that you cut ,bent, or rewired.
Just my opinion.

I don't sweat the petty things,But I do pet the sweaty things.
