Your best bet is to add loads slowly and monitor charging voltage. Get a small voltmeter so that you can monitor voltage while you ride. Make sure that the charging system will supply at least 13V as you ride. You'll probably have to turn your heating gear off at stops to keep from discharging the battery. (Charging output is lowest at idle.) If your bike has incandescent tail lights and brake lights, that's a good place to save power with much more efficient LEDs.
