The wrist rest I'm referring to is the one from Bob's BMW... it locks the throttle in place so you can do whatever with your hand when needed. Be safe!

Sorry to disagree.........like my $40 Timex..the Omega Seamaster languishes in the drawer, needing a $400 rebuild for the crown gear and an overhaul.

best equipment i ever bought

the thing that comes closest to perfect of anything I have ever owned was my Cummins, B series, inline 6 cylinder, 5.9L Turbo Diesel engine. It had a Dodge truck wrapped around it so I could use it. Truck was okay. ENgine/motor was sublime. Power, economy, reliability. Gave me a woodie everytime I fired it up. Shoulda kept her forever... I sure miss that rattler

Best gear

Ok, my Stainless Rolex GMT Master is ok but my wifes Omega Sea master is cooler.
If I had it to again... I'd save toward my new GSA. The watches were anniversary gifts.
Waste of $$$ boy!? Cuda blown that $ on a BMW Santiago suit!

Best thing ever

TIVO!

Hands down for tech no winner. If you don't have sat. t.v. and a tivo you are missing the boat. We record everything and watch it the next night and fast forward through the junk. Leaves much more time for working on the toy's or keeping up with Adv. Rider.

How 'bout several?


Sierra Designs Clip Fashlight tent.

Sleeps one person comfortably with gear, two if youre very, very friendly. Watertight, easy to set up. I use shock cords to stake out the fly, and it goes up quickly, and sheds wind pretty well. Packs pretty small too. Mine's got about 12 years, and 3 or 4 cross country trips on it. No significant wear to it.

http://www.sierradesigns.com/tents.display.php?id=14

Coleman 442 duelfuel stove. Runs on pretty much anything thats liquid and burns. It simmers better than anything else ive ever tried. theres a pump thingie on the side that you have to pump to build up pressure, and those have a tendancy to fail after a few years. I have yet to fix mine. I usually just shake the thing, and that gets enough fuel into the generator pipe to get it rolling. The msr stoves might be a better choice for the himalayas, but theyre too unstable with a big pot of chile on em, and they dont simmer as well.





Danner acadia boots. Yeah, i know, theyre not the armored star trek boots that some people like, but they provide damn near as much protection imo as the aerostich combat touring boots, theyre more comfortable to wear off the bike, and theyre waterproof too.

Wore them for years. Soles don't offer enough traction. Roads over here in Okinawa can get pretty sick when wet. Now that I've "seen the light," I wear these:

Love my Gerbing heated jacket liner with Heatroller(tm). Best $240 I ever spent. It's been a lifesaver on long road trips. You never know when spring or fall temps will drop below 20 degrees in the mountains at night. I've spent too many hours recovering from hypothermic shivers in remote, dark places. I don't use it everyday, but it's great to know I'll never be near-death cold on a bike trip again.

By far...this is all I need:

Under Armour Compression Cold Gear long sleeve shirt
Gerbing heated vest
BMW 3-Phase suit
Daytona Goretex boots
AirHawk pad
M&Ms
Corn nuts

ok....and maybe a change of underwear....but, really, I could ride for a month on the above without stopping.

I just bought a LEATT Neck brace for my son and I (we both race MX). It looks like it's gonna be the best, smartest equipment purchase i've ever made.
