ADV motorcycle add-ons, gadgets and so on...

Hello everyone!
As a very proud owner of a 91 Yamaha XTZ 750 Super Ténéré, I want to share my bike improvements (that's what I think...) in terms of add-ons and gadgets, and find what other guys are doing to their bikes.
I don't know if this was done here, and I apologise if this was done.

My add-ons are the following:
- Homemade bracket made of steel tube and two steel bars, located behind windshield, and bolted to the gauges bracket
- Usb and lighter dual socket, to connect an usb cable or a lighter charger, to recharge a smartphone, tablet, camera, gps... it's bolted to the handmade bracket
- Handlebar waterproof case for Asus 7" tablet, located on the centre of the homemade bracket, but usually only the mounting plate is on place, the case is used only in trips, not for commuting
- Asus 7" tablet... I use it as gps, music player...
- Koso digital watch, attached with Velcro to the gauges pannel
- Another handlebar waterproof case, this time for my 5" smartphone, located on the center of the handlebar, just to know if anyone's trying to call me, and stop the bike if is someone REALLY important
- On/off switch to turn on manually the radiator fan, located near the lights switch. My fan starts working too late in my opinion. The thermostat is good, the wiring is fine, but it never turned on alone, even in the hottest day at summer! And I'm talking about 40℃! So it's a need, mostly in traffic, because my bike drinks lots of oil when the temperature gauge reaches the middle position
- H1 headlight converted to H4, and two osram night breaker unlimited H4 bulbs fitted to have more and better light
- Blinkers changed to led ones, for lowering bike electrical needs (changed relay...)
- Gauges light bulbs changed to led ones (same idea of the blinkers)
- Ice to put on one of the givi side cases... for cooling beer :-D

Later I'll put some pictures here!
But now I want to know what did you do to your bikes!
Regards!

Of course they're good for something! Another picture proving they're useful:

Beer in one side, food in the other.

No one uses gadgets or some add-ons to "improve" motorcycles?
