Jeeze... some very professional looking farkles....

Here's my sand stand plate with retriever cord. It's wide enough for my centerstand for tire removal in dirt.

Ok. I think I know where you're going with this now.

This may be of some use to those riding KLRs - or maybe it's good for all bikes at some point...

dovetailed mounts for rear top box with adjustment rod - sliding the box forward or backward. There's three different positions on mine now - way back, in the middle and all the way forward (makes a decent backrest).
The dovetails are made out of composite decking material - Home Depot.
The Female parts attached tot eh bike - note the rod laying across...


and here is the male portion on the bottom of the box.



It's a Doskocil box I got on ebay - $30 shipped - it's got the pressure equalizer valve and a large o-ring around the perimiter making it waterproof. Just like a pelican but cheaper and fwiw, Pelicans for a top box seem to be either just too big or just too small - this one's a perfect size.



There's more on a page here...

Any questions?

Here's something I put together last week. I need a roll chart holder for an upcoming ride but my handlebars don't have a crossbar to clamp it to. So, I made this bracket out of some sheet metal to mount the holder behind the windscreen:

Here's a shelf (aircraft style) I made for a friends R1100RT today. I think it looks good in bare aluminum but were leaning towards a black mat finish. Always amazes me how strong, ridged, and light a piece of .050 6061 can be with a few bends in just the right places.

Thanks,

I use a Bandsaw,12' disc sander, and a die grinder with a couple of different rotory files. All finished up with a 3M wheel on a bench grinder.

I made one out of a dollar store cutting board. Strong, durable, waterproof, bright color, and I made four of them in short order. I added a string like yours, but made a loop on the end that fits over my left grip or mirror.

I'll have to take a pic at some point...
