38/45L - As the sides are swappable, I might get a 31 for around town/lane-splitting duty.

Guards

I just went to the web site for Motogeist, sounds interesting to have a different vendor for GS stuff. I have a new GS on order, have the ALT rider crash bars on my current GS but the look nice. Can you tell us more about them?

Installed:
--Touratech Skid Plate (short) installed perfect. Love the removeable skid gards
--Touratech side stand foot. Solid, does the job
--Touratech radiator guards. Install was fast, just not a fan of using zipties to hold the parts in place. Otherwise solid.
--Touratech pannier racks with Globescout panniers
--Touratech lower crash bars

On the list: Lots of parts

I really don't want to sell as I have limited experience. However, I can say that the design is solid, installation straightforward (Xlnt instructions), and *superior* customer service. I met the "Chief Enthusiast" at OX. Great guy and someone who clearly takes pride in his work.

I would suggest you call and talk to Omar if you have any questions.

How do you like the Cee Bailey screen? How tall are you?

I'm 6'3" and would sure like quieter air.

I am 6ft tall. Cee Bailey is marginally better than stock. I did get the dark tint, so it looks quite cool.

New Awesome Products

Check out Black Dog Cycle Works, Kurt has some of the most innovative designs available. They are working on a skid plate, handlebar risers, foot pegs, radiator guards, rear master cylinder guard with power port, tail rack, and light bar mount. Kurt said all of his new products should be available by the end of June. I have a standing order for all of his LC products.

What are you guys liking for accessory light mounts?

I'd like to put some good driving lights on when I get a chance.

Nav Mount

Any way to get wired audio out of the Nav with the mount that comes on the touring addition? The audio jack is covered by the left side of the mount.

There is a hack for that but does have some drawbacks... Search this forum, I cannot find it right now.

What kind of fine tuning is possible on those?

That is almost funny The Russell Day Long is the best you can get for long distance riding. I have one on my 2012 Triple Black and wouldn't ride without it. The best of the best in my opinion.
