Could you have added a stainless cup holder to keep your stainless coffee mug warm/hot enroute?

Otherwise...great job.

I forget the size but can measure it, I bought it off the net. I made a small plate and welded a stainless nut to it then welded that to the two pipes underneath. It then bolts to the bracket I welded to the bag mount.

Sidestand enlarger.

Homemade headlight guard, homemade center stand skid plate.
Drilled speedholes in bash plate (the increase in speed is tremendous)

That might be a little bit grabby on asphalt.
Causing the bike to topple over instead of sliding.

My bet is those zip ties will let go long before that.

What turn signals are these?

And aceranic: Did you design those bash guards yourself? Any willingness to share the dxf assuming it would fit a 2006 GS1200 ...?

I made a rack to replace the passenger seat. I had a reason for the asymmetrical placement of the bars that I can't remember. I am thinking about replacing the bars with a flat tray now.

There code 3 strobe lights off a pd ohv. They are red and i have them set up to flash at different rates so when the hazard lights are on it gets there attention. There are also amber lights up front. And there is a bypass switch to turn them all on. I stop on the side of the freeway a lot for work and got tired of everyone zipping by.
The only daily advantage is my turn signals now work much better. Although i have not put them on the new bike yet.
