I have an 05.5 950 Adventure with 55,000 miles on it. MOSFET will be the replacement down the road. I'm scraping monetarily due to my Girl being out of work for two yrs due to an injury (workers comp pays squat.) full knee replacement surgery was today

Yeah, only ever had arthroscopic on one, but they can ache something awful after a day at Knoxville or Clear Creek.

I used this:



To mount this oil pressure gauge (From here):



Like this:


The gauge doesn't have a light so I can't see it in the dark, but it is easier to install since there are no electrical connections.

Idle hands and an old helmet visor turned into this today. It is held on with sticky velcro. I'm hoping it will add some additional comfort on long street rides. It can be easily removed and stashed away when I hit the dirt. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic.

Perhaps the best, non-narrated video I have seen.

The song is "N'to - Trauma (Worakls Remix)" (link to track). He probably grabbed it from this fantastic video of Alex Chacon's travels:

Great looking bike! I am interested in that mirror solution as well but I was not planning to run HDB hand guards - I wonder how these mirror mounts will do on either the stock hand guards or perhaps the Touratech guards as I prefer all plastic hand guards on my bike. How is the visibility (view and vibrations) with those mirrors mounted like that?
