Toss up: GSA windscreen and Bags Connection tankbag

The GSA windscreen is just awesome compared to the standard GS screen. I just finished installing it along with the Bags Connection Engage tank bag. This bag is esthetically the best looking bag and is great for around town use.

Garmin 276c
Thunderbike Crashbars Not applicable outside of Triumph Tigers. If you have one, they're the best. (And quite expensive).
Sidi Strada Tepor Evos (Actually have three pairs of Sidis, if you count the 'Stich CBTs, but these I wear the most - awesome feel for the shifter, great protection)
Vanson Ventilator jacket and pants (why did they quit making that jacket? of the most highly rated - by magazines - mesh jackets available when it was made.)
Crampbuster Same as the old Throttle Rocker, before the legal battles ensued.
Hella FF50s Cheap, durable, and crazy bright for the price.
Oxford Sports Saddlebags Candidly, the only bags that work well with the high twin pipes on my Steamer. Hold quite a bit for the small profile. If you have high exhausts making it hard to fit luggage, you'll love 'em.
Sidi Monza Wicking Socks $15 for SOCKS? Hell no....$45. I bought two more pair. They're that good.
Held Steves Heard all kinds of stories about bad stitching and poor customer service. I haven't found either to be true in my case. Most comfortable gloves I've ever worn, and I'm a glove whore.
Vanson Leather Jacket The "Satellite", in my case, because I wanted the yellow/black combination for visibility, and was blowing them out. I have a Darien Lite, A Roadgear XCaliber, and a couple of older jackets, the model names of which escape me (a Teknic and an Alpinestars). All of which are more useful and practical than the Vanson. But I've found out the expensive way that I'm old school when it comes to gear, and I'll jack around with rain gear all day long for the satisfaction I get from a good leather jacket. Tough as hell, doesn't slap around in the wind. Unless it's 90 or hotter, it's what I'm wearing.
TourMaster Sentinel rain jacket and pants (See Vanson jacket above). Super durable, elastic in all the right places, very visible.

Best gear

If I could name just one thing, the most basic riding gear is GREAT PANTS! & those would be the BMW Santiago pants, including large leg-vent zippers! (Never as safe as Moptport)

Ok...two things, Motoport Ultra Kevlar pants for most all weather! Cool ya! & boy are they comfortable!

Now if I had to name three things, on a budget the V-Strom-650 is amazing. Till I buy my GSA (God willing) Oh ya, knife-spoon-fork too
Possibly a GSA someday.
04 KTM 525 EXC street legal
& 29 other bikes since 1974
Amazing love (grace) how can it be, that you my king would die for me?

That would have to be my 1987 Malcolm Smith ISDE Jacket (still going strong) and the Camelback. I also love my early '80's Vendramini Enduro boots.

#1 Motoport Ultra ll Jacket: 14 years and perfect! NEVER a drop of rain gets thru! 20F - 112F is perfectly comfortable. Use a rain liner or thermal liner.
With Motoport.... they custom fit sleeve length on jackets and leg length on
Ultra ll Motoport pants #2.

Next: A good top box. Nothing better than knowing you got a place that is always dry.

Gerbings heated liner.

SealSknz socks: I wear a size 15 boot ... so I have to wear waterproof socks under my Red Wing boots .....

Don't Leave Home Without It.

If a physical fact can produce a psychological state, a psychological state can produce a physical fact... The whole of creation is asleep within the deep of man and is awakened to objective existence by his subconscious assumptions.

Ordered and got it. It's perfect. Thank you for the great recommendation!
Danger is one thing. But danger plus extreme discomfort for long periods is quite another.

Thurlow Leather World RIP

I've had 2 pairs of their unlined gaunlet gloves. What great gloves comfortable, protected my hands when I totaled my GPZ 750. It's a shame it appears they are no more. Great people, great service and an awesome product, certainly is a tough combination in todays world.
