First of all.....I have the short levers and when the bike hits the ground, it is always the handle bars that make contact with the ground.

But, this ride killed those crappy hand guards. Acerbis guards will soon be mounted on my Protaper Bar.

Waiting for a bath

Here's mine after a quick trip in the woods near Mt Hood last Sat. This is a great thread, lots of inspiration for building mine up. OBCDR here I come!

Sweet lookin bike Eggman! I recommend the RAM mount for just about anything that needs to be held. I've got one on my bike that holds my Magellan and it does not move at all.

I have a touratech on my GSA, but I really want to mount it right above my triple claps, maybe just a bit ahead, might try the enduro engineering universal mount and my toruatech
