Don't know how long you've had your 'Pin, but myself having come from riding and modifying an '06 HD Road King, I can assure you that aftermarket parts for other brands may be more plentiful than they are for Vic, they are still pricey.
You have to be happy with what you ride, or it will seem to log more garage time than highway time.
I've been down the "lots of chrome" road, and this time around decided to go black. I too am not crazy about the stock signals, but there are options, especially if you want chrome.
If your concerns go deeper than appearance issues, then maybe now is the time to trade for something different. This time of year seems to have plenty of bargain prices, especially if you can find a "new" '09 or '10 model.
Funny, after going from HD to Victory, I found myself saying "why wouldn't HD have done something like that?"
I think you should have more to look forward to in the new model year other than what 1 or 2 colors besides "vivid black" will be offered and how much the price will increase.
Notice your subject mentions "chopper", you talking custom, BigDog or something along the lines of the Honda Fury or HD Rocker?
