Here is my 2008 Sportsternightsterster. ster.
I made the luggage rack by welding up some basic mild steel from the hardware store. I can fit my top case and soft tail bag on top of it, good enough that I don't really need saddle bags.
The fog lights are mounted on a totally stylish piece of angle iron, which in turn is mounted to the forks with some even more stylish exhaust clamps.
I put some more foam in the seat to ease the butt pains, but it still kinda sucks.
Otherwise, it's just stock and is basically like new.
In the future, I will surely be changing out the rear shocks with something with more than 1" of travel, and some more ride height so I can actually go around turns without coming to a complete stop.
A better seat, slightly lower/narrower handlebars, and highway pegs would make it all right.
