I posted up on the TU250 forum. These pictures turned out much better. Being outside and all.

First, thanks for the pics.

Second, thanks for posting it :)

I looked up your bike earlier 'cause I didn't know what
it was and it was very cool :)

Tell me, with that helmet, you don't get lost do you?
I posted a discussion here on ADV a few months ago asking
for advice on whether to get a hi viz jacket or regular and it
started a discussion about hi viz helmets and such.

Yep, I DO like your bike and again, thanks.

George

I know that cagers don't SEE motorcycles, but I want to afford them every opportunity.

Eastern and Western Rally

For those who are going or have friends that are going to the eastern and western V-strom rallies, They'll be giving away my hooks as door prizes.

Thumb Kuul addition!

I received my order in a very timely manner and in a package that survived the USPS.

A quick spin of an Allen key and the hook was on the '08 R12GS. It is one of the most useful addition to the bike.

Thank you for developing this as I will be less likely to drop my helmet.

Best,

Thanks Rob. Yeah, it's hard as hell to mount isn't it? :)

I love those bubble bags. Much stronger than anything I've found locally.

Hey, could we see some pics of your bike? Don't have any beamers in the stable yet.

Thanks for ordering :)

George

Rob, I don't know the first thing about beamers and someone asked me today if they will fit on a GSA. I asked him to send me pictures but then I thought, maybe you have an idea if they will or not.

Thanks

George

I've got mine installed on my Tiger 800 XC with Barkbuster's fitted. The unit fit right over the Barkbuster spacer as they are both 7/8". The challenge for me was to keep the helmet hook in place. You can see in the first photo, I used a gromet I had laying around - this helped, but I'm in search of a piece of 3/4 - 7/8 ID hose that I can cut to fit the space and give the helmet hook a little resistance.

In the 2nd and 3rd photo - here it is "stowed" and "deployed". I've drilled a hole for the lock and need to go get one.

Are you saying that you can't tighten it enough? If so, can you take a couple of pics of your hand guard and ends WITHOUT the hook and also measure the part that's to the RIGHT of the grommet.

Maybe we can figure something out.

By the way, is your setup (handguards n' stuff) standard? Ie, stock?

Hey, ttime4four can you put the helmet hook ALL the way to the right so it's right up against the rubber grip?

George

Just ran out to the garage and put it between the bar end and the grip on my 800GS. Fits nicely there. Will take new pics and post them tomorrow and delete the pics above.
