Hands down no question, my Aeroflow windshield and mini fairing for my 06 R12GS. Total wonderful transformation of the riding experience!

Swiss Champ/Top Box

Used Ventura soft luggage for years, then tried a topbox and never looked back. Couldn't live without one now.

My two Swiss Champs are also invaluable.

Steel cable ties.

Normal cable ties.

the Etymotic ER6 earbuds. After fucking around with lots of other earbuds, I finally spend the $. worth every penny. they seal out the noise about as well as earplugs and the clarity is great. there are a couple of songs where I thought, using other earbuds, they were singing different words than they actually are....

I have the ER6i (well 2 pairs actually since I thought I lost my originals and after I had finished weeping, I ordered some more on the spot) and they are fantastic.

Actually, my Icon deerskin gloves. Bought them four years ago and they are the gloves of choice for me, and I have many pair. Good all rounder. Still holding up well.

The best piece of equipment I've ever bought is my helmet. I got a new shorty helmet from MotorMedley.com and it shipped in like 2 days so I had it for the weekend rides! I thought I would hate wearing one, but it's actually really comfortable, and cool on the highway cause it's vented. I know I'm protected so that makes me feel better about it.

Actually, I'd probably have to say the Vance 'n Hines pipes were a good choice too! Sounds sweet now!

Anyone have a great windproof lighter to recommend? I'm tired of flicking the damn Bic.

Zippo. It'll run on gasoline, but makes your smokes taste funny. Won't run on JP8 though....

Blazer Butane Pen-Torch

Aerostitch Riders Wearhouse has a Blazer Butane Pen-Torch I've been eyeing. Says it can solder wires, melt or fuse plastic panels, start campfires or thaw frozen locks, etc. Has a "adjustable throttle and instant one button piezo system," that last for 30 minutes before it needs butane refill from the corner convenience store.

It looks like a pen, but isn't cheap at $42.00. I've had more need for other 'stuff so far, but it looks pretty handy.

They also have a "Blazer Micro-Torch" that says it has a "windproof burner." But when I look at it, I'm not sure how it is any better. It runs $47.00.
