In my last trip a GSA fall on top of my bike and damaged the bars. The insurance didn't want to change them but agreed to paint them.
I prefer the stell because the paint is going to be scratched very soon but I like the look in black.

Meanwhile I’m hoping that ACD has time to develop some strong crash bars. The Touratech are nice but not very strong.

Hey, DaFoole -

Are you using a HDB top-clamp, but without the HDB hand guards? I see lots of added instrumentation, but no use (yet) of the HDB top clamp for switches and other doo-dads. Everything looks great, but what's your plan? How do you have your instruments setup? TIA. Cheers!

One of these days....ahem....I plan on setting up 1 or 2 plugs for power supplies...and some RAM ball mounts on the HDB clamp....after I get my fuse block set up...after I get my new shock/fork work done, ECU reflash....etc, etc, etc.....

Don't have much time these days for anything but general maintenance and just want to be able to ride when I get a few days off rather than continue farkling....

This winter, however....

Right now, the SPOT (on the right) and my Ipod control (on the left) are on Ram mounts set up on the handlebars. The SPOT will be moved to the HDB, the Ipod control will stay where it is as I can mess with it with minimal reach.

Not familiar with the HDB hand guards. Went with Touratech (Re-badged Acerbis) hand guards (not in this pic) as I could use my Kaoko throttle lock without a hassle.

My (old) Garmin is on a Touratech mount centrally mounted on a WASP windshield bracket where it will remain as I can see it without looking down.

Hope this answers your questions.

PM me if you have other questions, otherwise.....

Further inquires should be addressed to Pluric in hopes of annoying him....

Carry on.

Can't help it that I notice things like the fork tell-tale. it's habit. But what's up with the slight weeping around the rear brake caliper banjo bolt?

Can't believe you made me look at my caliper. Dry as a bone.

Now the drive shaft housing is a different story. You musta missed it. :)

If that happens, then plans (routes) will change.
But staying home is not only out-of-the-question, it's too late!

Already 3 tanks into this adventure.

I finally found a screen thats smaller than the oem and gives the s10 a more sporty look
I always liked the screen that was on the worldcrosser concept bike. Sadly that is not available so i had make something like it myself. Its a powerbronze adventure sports which is cut for a different shape with some vinyl and stickers added.
