I think many folks think they need all this stuff before they can go try it, that's not the case. KISS, then once you're addicted, start raising the game.

Well said, Ned.

Ganshert built a bracket for my roadbook in about 5 minutes using some scrap steel, and it works fine. Of course I'd still like to build a full-on Rally bike, but the point is that I've been able to do a bunch of cool roadbook rides.
