That is what I was thanking so I checked the less than $100 box. The only thing I bought was a licence plate frame and a couple chrome bolts.

Since I got my 08 Nightster for free from work. The day I picked up my bike, I purchased forward controls, V & H SS, SE Heavy Breather, 32" drag bars, and that little round thing you put on the ground so your kick stand won't sink into soft ground. The shop I was at used them so the kick stands and the ground doesn't get scratched. Not sure if these are accessories but more the necessity, I purchase a new helmet and leather jacket and some riding boots. I'd say I spent a little over $2000 the day of.

Just under 400 for a combo gauge and mirrors from the motor company.
280 for heavy duty shocks from Drag Specialties, those should be here soon. The Roadster's rear suspension is trash and hopefully this will prevent my spine from exploding whenever I hit a bump or dip I can't see coming.
