Dealer show is coming in a couple of weeks and I was browsing the "must have" list to get a head start on my order. For the most part it's just more aftermarket products put into an H-D box. You guys will see more Kuryakyn products put into H-D boxes such as curved license plate mounts and mid frame air deflector chrome trim.

They really don't have any impressive accessories this go around but the winter show isn't normally known for anything that good.

Have you seen the new stuff coming out?
The parts manager at my dealer said there were some cool grips coming out.
Just curious at this point.
Yea I got my list, I'm the parts manager at the dealer here.

I haven't made a judgment on the grips just because the pics they sent out to us were tiny and had no real information except the fact they are called get-a-grip I believe.

They come out with a few nice things at every show but I would like to see them try to be a little more unique and stop re-branding/packaging aftermarket companies products.

The new hidden antenna is nice but it's 49.95, identical to the hogtenna that is 39.95, which is all identical to Autozone's antenna for 18$. Only plus side is that I can get it covered under factory warranty for folks now.

Oh I will add that what they have already released to us is a "must have" list and not a complete listing of new products. We'll have to see what the show has in store for us.

Well if they are made in China, I ain't buying them! I really got pissed off when I took my stock speakers out and they said made in China. I got nothing against Chinese, but MOCO needs to wise up. I won't rant here--in fact. I'll start a new thread. :)
+1. Wiil try and find hour rant thread :)

Factory Rep came by the shop today. Got to lay hands on the new grips. Very comfy and very similar to ones carried by PM. They are offered in black (for Chainsaw, LOL!) and in Chrome.

I was suprised to see him too. Just lucky timing I guess. I saw the curved license plate, looks like the Kuryakyn one, but if I looked at the list right, its offered in black as well. I am kinda excited about the K&N filters for the SE 'cleaners like the Ventilator. Talked the service manager into doing a real world Dyno test on them

I wonder if all these kuryakyn-like parts are for the whole factory customization thing. The reps must be making the rounds hard, because my dealer had to totally redo their showroom. I guess they got a slap on the wrist for having the kuryakyn and other aftermarket parts on the same wall as H-D parts.

Chain, you may be right. The sad thing is, it has taken the MOCO this long to come out with parts that the aftermarket have had for a long time. It does seem that they are embracing black being the new chrome a little faster than the aftermarket though.

I am not real happy about the "Boom" helmet mount intercom system. First one from China harley was defective and replaced under warranty. An additional one for a passenger (what good is an intercom for one person) lists for $195.00. You know it works OK, but for that kind of scratch, it should be blue tooth and wireless. Oh yea, and made in the USA.
