Lighting is rarely a first concern when buying a Harley. You check to make sure the headlights turn on, flash on the brights, flick on the blinkers. If it all works, you call it good and forget it about it; until you realize you need an upgrade. Maybe you had a bulb go out. Maybe you don’t like the way your lights look. Maybe you want something brighter. Whatever the reason that brought you here, you’ll be glad to hear that you have options. The way that we light our bikes has been evolving for a long time, and the options you see here are the culmination of decades of innovation. We’ve taken our favorite aftermarket Harley lighting parts and accessories and compiled them all here. We’ll give you a rundown of what makes each option so great.
