Yeah, the only difference is that In the UK sunglasses are just superfluous. We never get any sun .

I like the way my braces do the work of what a belt used to be employed to do. Its a bit pointless using a belt on the widest bit !

Believe it or not my Landrover is my home. My house is rented out most of the time and I am a Grey Nomad.

How sad is this: I would be touring on my bike if we did not have a cat - yes a cat. He travels with is and the 16 year old little bu66er wont die. Hence 4 wheels not 2.

You couldn't make it up.

"Strap on friendly".......no comment....

Any way back to the bars: They are actually a set of Yamaha ones that I have modified. They serve 5 purposes really.

1) They are big enough to stop my legs being trapped when I fall off.
2) They allow the side panels to be removed whilst still protecting the rad.
3) They (as you said) are big enough to allow bags to be strapped on without blocking the rad.
4) They make the bike look like it wants a fight. They also stop the Yamaha lights looking like they were borrowed from a car.
5) They protect the handlebars from trauma when the bike falls over.

If you want to see more, PM me and I will send you pics of them being painted for a better view.

A fellow on ST forum drew up a windscreen from a picture off the net and made a downloadable PDF file. I thought it would be a good exercise, and after initial failure with the ABS sheet melting and makeing huge bubbles, my second try worked.

That's one cool screen. Saw that thread over the Tenere forum right today. That sounds like a fun DIY project.
How's the screen behavior?

I have the wasp screen adjuster, so can move it around some, I like it down and pretty much parallel with the original mounts.

I now have to ride with earplugs of course, but no turbulence. Makes a GREAT hooligan screen, and would work great at the track, you can get down behind it and giddyup! I really like the overall feel/look when riding, makes the bike feel like a motard if that is possible and I have never been on one.

MPG will most likely pickup a notch also as my other screen is a modified madstad F650GS2 large screen.

+1 on the good wishes for a speedy recovery. If it makes you feel better, I've had my Tenere since December 31st and don't have but 175 or so miles on it. And I have no injuries keeping me from riding. 2 jobs, 3 kids and 2 small businesses, but no injuries (yet). Oh, and crappy weather almost every weekend since New Years...
Get better soon.
