Corbin saddle

We would have to say that purchasing my Corbin Saddle for my V-Strom was the best $400 bucks I have spent on the bike. Even though it was spendy man is it comfy and looks cool.

You must have been one of the lucky ones who got theirs made right the first time...

new best ever

I ordered stretch Kevlar Jeans from Motoport & soon to get Jacket to match.

This is my second set of gear from Motoport because of the SAFETY-COMFORT & everlasting quality of the gear.

This material is the only thing on the market that's reusable regardless of use & abuse! Massive abrasion resistance. Prices higher than the junk & lower than say BMW-gear.

Daytona riding boots (model?). I've had them about 10 yrs - resoled them many times - and they're are still great. The build quality and materials are superb.

The best piece of equipment I ever bought?
Well, I'd say it's a toss up between the deer whistles (they only work in pairs, most guys make the mistake of only using one) and the brass bell that I hung off the bottom of the bike to keep the gremlins off it.

Redneck Lights

Fantastic and most practical solution for Snake River night rides- But on a personal note, has such a concentration of light at night caused that inbalance of your ocular muscles???

Apparently so.

I can't tell if he's looking at the camera or a fly on the wall...I mean a fly on two different walls.

Cool rig though.

Small but beautiful

We all love to add a little flash to our machines and I found this beautifully made footie called the Camel Toe for my Adv 990 on Ebay (look for 'adventure-parts' there) made in the UK by 950 owner, Paul.

It's precision laser cut and measures about 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches so it's big and functional without being obtrusive, a really nice piece of gear. It works like a charm on soft ground and makes the Touratech version look pretty lame. Swapping emails, Paul says he's working on different powder coated colours including KTM orange. He makes other stuff, all nice looking kit. GS owners are allowed a peek too.

That is really nice looking but I think that the gash is not big enough for my stability needs...........

Thumb Keeps you warm

In case it has not been mentioned yet,

Anything Merino by Icebreaker, from flat stitched underwear to 360 weight top layer, the stuff they make rules. No stink, hand wash and dry over night, super comfortable all around wear.

Simply the best, be careful highly addictive gear.
