I had thoughts of doing a adjustable mount for my tenere so I could lower or raise depending on track conditions. Still thinking about that one.

Really cheap blinkers, stick on amber led strips. About 6 bucks for the pair.


Quick and dirty headlight guard. Is it pretty and bulletproof? No. Was it about $10 in parts, an hour of my time, and likely to take a rock before the $250 Yamaha light does? Yup.

Looks like you have a hex spacer and a bracket into the headlight surround. Does the hex spacer line up with the edge of the glass? Hope you have some space to prevent the he. Spacer moving impacting the glass when a rock hits

Looks pretty slick really
Well done

That was also my first concern when I put it together, doing more harm than good. But the brackets are about a half inch from the glass in all directions, pics just don't show it well. I went with the hex spacer so that I could have rounded allen bolts facing all directions.

Luggage rack for my R1100R

I needed some support or luggage rack to hold my T-bag. Two up tent camping sure eats up space fast. The T-bag uses the backrest as support but still needs something to hold up the bottom. I decided to build a rack that I could unbolt when not in use to keep things clean. So I started out with a CB antenna mirror mount cut in half to bolt to the Touratech bag mounts, then bend some tubing and welded bolts to the end:





Rear w/T-bag

T-bag hangin

Done deal,once I paint it. So far $15 bucks.

Brilliant! I love this thread...always learning a new idea from a fellow inmate!

Off to look for CB antenna clamps!

as promised, they arent the best photos but you get the generall idea .
ive also gone to HID on both low and high beam as well..


low beam only


high beam


high beam and light bar



front view


though it doesnt look like much of a difference in the pic the light bar throws the same ammout of light as the combined hid kits in terms of brightness and visable light distance, where it out does them is the spread of light. this makes it much easier to see the sides of the road and avoid those potential furry speedbumps .
