FFS don't tell Pluric, he'll have the state troopers turn me back at the Utah border . I'll sneak it in and see if he notices.

Here is what I came up with. $3 worth of 1/8"x1/2"x36" cut down to two 8" braces:







Going camping off of the bike this weekend; report to follow!

That looks very effective.

Here is what I built to do the same thing plus hold my GPS.

First I made a templet.



From the templet I made the (two) brackets.



After the brackets were made (and powder coated) I clamped it to the bike (using a 3/8” bolt as a locator) and drilled the mounting holes.



Mounting hardware and the 3/8” locating bolt.



Right side mounted.



Left side mounted.


The hole on very the top of the mount I will put a cross bar that will hold my GPS. End result is I have a dual purpose bike with a dual purpose bracket. It stiffens the wind screen mount and holds my GPS.
Because of my metal inventory, and my contacts, my cost on this project was $00.00.

Looks like some kind of marital aid I've not seen before.
You know what they say "Once you've had black...."

I see you recycle your Depends to cushion your sex toys. Great idea.

You know pluric not everyone is as kinky as you are.

That is a good idea about the recycled Depends.

So, the "Once you've had black...." thing....does that apply to the bike or ....... Nah never mind.... horrible thoughts

The "Depends" thing took a while to figure . Its a Yank thing obviously

Very cool! Great idea

After my weekend ride, the two braces performed great. I honestly didn't pay much attention to them, I guess that was due to my Montana not flopping around like before...

Ray you are getting up in age and might need Depends just like pluric does now. I am sure he can recommend which ones to buy.
