Laugh My electric blankey

The biggest revelation for me was a Gerbings electric jacket and Heatroller controller. Has allowed me to go riding pretty much year-round in the PacNW for the past 6 years.

Of course, I'd get soaked without my Aerostich Roadcrafter 2-piece suit. I "retired" my 10 year old suit to off-road-only duties, and have a new one for the street this year.

Craftsman ATV/Bike floor jack ain't bad, particularly for $89.00.

Perfect for peg dragging, rough, off road stuff and WALKING. Best all around MC boots I've found.

I put a set of steel, MX toe protectors on mine.

They ain't cheap, but they sure as hell are good!!
Same here, no break in time required, excellent ofr everything..including...WALKING!

I LOVE this thread. Someone posted a while back that it be circulated around Christmas time, excellent idea. Most of the items are not expensive and be bought by those non ridin' relatives we all have, yet always seem to draw our name in the family gift exchange.

In no particular order:
Alpinestars Jet Jacket - Goretex, padding, liner. Bought it at the dealer for 50% off and still paid $200 for it. I wish it had more vents for summer riding, but hey, if I get hot, I can always ride up into the mountains to cool off.

NovoGar Trials Boots - Waterproof and just heavy duty enough for me to use on that occasional off road excursion that will include a bit of hiking to my favorite secret fishing spot.

Cee Baileys Seat - Before I traded my GS, it was the best thing since sliced bread. I could ride all day and not have to worry about people accusing me of havings "wings" on my seat. Bought it from a fellow AdvRider who didn't get along with it and I loved it.

Boxer Briefs - I know, TMI, but I am a tighty whitey guy, always have been. My wife bought me these boxer briefs and they stayed in the drawer. Due to a lack of clean laundry I used a pair on my last ride on the 950. 'Nuff said.

Fastway "barkbuster" mounts - I will not, repeat will not, ride off road without hand protection. These doohickeys (sorry KLR guys) take the mounts off the bars and move them onto the bar clamp. This frees up space for adjusting your controls "just so" and allowing you to use the bar space for other things. Besides the bling factor, they are strong and trouble free.

Yoshimura RS3 Off Road muffler - Again, bling factor is very high, but the main reason I bought it was noise reduction. I was running a full White Bros E Series system on my YZ426 and it was way loud. I bought the Yosh and started the bike. Wow, there seems to be a lot of noise from my engine that I never noticed before. The neighbors don't care anymore when I blast up the street. The full E Series system is now up on the garage wall. For Sale?

Thanks. This thread has become pretty much what I hoped it would when I started it.

Good idea to bump it for Christmas this year.

Lots of interesting things here that I wouldn't have expected to find.

Sargent seat and a set of Jesse's for those long hauls.. The Piaa lights are right up there as well. Good to be seen in the daytime and see at night.

What is a Kermit chair?

All I can think of is a little green children's folding camp chair.
