Default Best Accessory Purchased?!?

Just curious what everyone out there thinks is the best accessory they've added to their bike. The highway bars with soft lowers have been a godsend for riding in WI. Wife suggested heated grips. Any personal opinions on #1 accessory you've added?

The absolute best for me is the Digital Guard Dawg Keyless Ignition. It is great not having to worry about a key getting in the way or forgetting to remove it from the ignition. The next best accessory is the tachometer. I look at it as much as I do the speedometer.

I've said this since I bought it, the Power Commander V with Autotune is by far the best money I've ever spent on any accessory for any bike I've ever had. The immediate pickup in responsiveness and the overall flexibility to control and analyze the performance of my bike puts it head and shoulders over any other seat, chrome, performance, or convenience item I've ever purchased.

So the PCV w/auto is useful even before new pipes and/or filter?

My ride is the 2012 Vegas 8-Ball.
There are many like it but this one is mine.

Well, I'll give the boring answer. The bags. I know they clutter up a bike, I know they offer no performance enhancement, but seriously, what can you carry with out them ? If it doesn't fit into your pockets, you aint carrying it.

Most useful is the Harley lugage rack. I'm still figuring out the PCV and AT.
