Dang, nice farkling.

I was happy to just pick up a new (demo) Triumph Tall Adjustable windscreen for $115 yesterday. Seemed like a good enough deal to try it. I was going to do a Madstad but at the price if I don't like it I can get back out of it without a loss.

One wire from one of the headlights (also seems to share low beam) seems to go back to pin 9 at the alarm connection but that is shared with some of the other lights as well.

Looking for a small magnetic tank bag for a phone, glasses etc.. I just want something I can just throw on the tank (figuratively speaking) and head out. I have a Wolfman for trips but it's a strap model so a bit more of a PIA to fit than I'm looking for here...

Cheers

My wife likes her Bags Connection "Engage", easy on and off but you'd need the tank ring.

Joe Rocket Manta fits very well and will hold everything you mentioned.


I used the Rocket until I got the Triumph City tank bag and it just stays on all the time.

I did think about that actually but I figured it would then interfere with the Wolfman tank bag I use on trips, hence I was leaning towards a magnetic bag.

That's what I use, but I'm not really a tank bag fan. On long trips I use it a lot, but I can't get used to it when I stand up.

Joe Rocket manta $50 at a local Suzuki dealer.

That is why I mounted the manta backwards, wasn't in the way as much.
What spoiler is that??

I have the MRA X-creen http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade...view/6777/845/

It flops around like crazy, but I have a bracket from my Givi windshield that holds it steady.

GPS mount

With all the locking, windshield mount fancy GPS mounts lately I feel a bit like a luddite... just using the same old U bolt I've been using forever.
