So, me with a gerbings, her with a gerbings, an intercom in the tailbag...that's three ports already. Right now it looks like a lot of overkill, but it's a lot better than my "before" picture, which was a series of coax and SAE connectors.

So far it's been working out great! It's nice to be able to hop on the saddle and reach down to the panel. I can actually see the ports, and I don't hafta remove my gloves to plug in...


Cheers!

For a G650 XC...

Made these in school:















The skidplate is definitely overkill. Still have it too, the rack went with the bike when I sold it.

Its fun tinkering, isn't it, especially when you can't ride all winter.

The home garage now has a lathe and a mill, and I hope to have one hell of a big compressor and a large glass beading booth in the near future. A TIG welding outfit would also be nice, but my Oxy-Acetylene will have to do for now.

I hope some can use some of the ideas, even if its for another make and model.

Love the gas grill heat treatment color matching, very clever.

I believe its a 20mm ammo case, i got it in Fountain, CO (right next to an army base) and i paid a cool 7 bucks for the case.

I did the design for the bracket and had a guy weld it for me (no welder or skills here ) and if i remember correctly it was 20 bucks for the materials and work on that.

The only thing i wish i had done is lower it a bit more, it sticks up a bit and on some bumps or long riding my butt hits it, and being hard mounted it vibrates quite a bit. Like having a brick shaped vibrator touching your ass for an hour
