A car makes you feel safe and snug. A motorbike, with the engine between your legs, makes you feel powerful, a daredevil, foolhardy and at the top of the world. And rightly so! If you have a motorcycle and your creative side is getting active, you can ‘pimp’ it to give it a personalized look and enhance your comfort and riding experience. Motorcycle pimping is easy. This is because unlike vehicles, motorcycles have a simple construction and their accessories are easy to remove, replace and add. If you are on a pimping spree, you need to know which motorcycle accessories you can change or improve to get that customized look that will turn heads as you ride down the street.
Add a pad or change the Seat
While most people will focus on the performance of the bike, you can sprinkle some comfort in the performance by ensuing that your seat is comfortable. Most of the original seats are not as comfy as you would want them to be and those that are will eventually get worn out. You can pimp your bike by giving yourself extra padding or replacing the seat with a softer more comfortable one. This will ensure that your rides are comfortable even for longer journeys.
Paint Guard Films
Your motorcycle is an attraction to bugs and dirt especially if you ride fast. For this reason, you should use all accessories available to protect the paint job on the bike. One way to effectively do this is through a thin layer of protective film. Similar to the protective films on mobile phones, this film will protect the motorcycle paint job from scratches and unwanted blemishes that might compromise its look. Your bike will get that shiny new look.
Another way to pimp your motorcycle is to buy high quality pain and get a good design going. One of the most iconic places you can place your design is on the fuel tank. It is large enough to be visible and gives ample space for the design. If you are not creative enough to pull a great paint job, but a fuel tank sticker which is among the common pimping accessories you will get in most aftermarket motorcycle shops. Ensure the sticker is well place and it matches with your type of bike. For instance, a good eagle image is great for classics and for cruisers. A super hero image will go well with a sport bike.
A helmet is more important than most accessories although it can be part of your pimping campaign. With the advancement in technology, motorcycle helmets now come in different shapes, colors and styles, you can customize your own helmet or simply buy one that is designed in such a way that it matches with your bike, interests or preferences. When you are buying the pimped motorcycle helmet, ensure that it meets the safety standards set by the relevant authorities.
Pimping your bike is a great idea to give it a better appearance. Keep in mind that any pimping accessories you use should not in any way compromise your riding ability because then they will just be hindrances that might cause an accident.
