Not centered very well or is it the picture angle?

It needs adjustment. I threw on it on real quick last night before going to "meet the teacher" night, I need to loosen the Ram mount and level and adjust. Just wanted it secure enough to get to work today. It is so much easier to read than when it was down over the bars...

There is a nice bracket out for the S10 that goes over the dash like that unfortunately I can't see that far so for now mine stays on the bars.

If you are a believer that possession is 9/10ths of the law then yes, I've had a DRZ for about 4 months now.

I put this on yesterday. Touring screen from CalSci. It doesn't look as sexy as the stock one, but in the low position it feels like I get more air hitting me where I want it (good), and in the high position it blocks most of the wind (also good). It's not as quiet and windless as the Strom with the tall Givi on, but it'll be a lot better than stock for longer rides and for winter.

The UPS man delivers:

Skidplate- LONG overdue. During my last ride with Peaches, a large rock hit the underside of the 'strom and killed the kickstand switch. Easy fix, but it could have easily been my oil cooler or oil filter or engine case...

Handguards- I try not to put the 'strom in places where these are needed. I have a DRZ for that. The added warmth in winter will be nice. Also, see "riding with Peaches" above.

Throttle lock- The good ol' caterpillar O ring wont work with the handguards.

I'll install these (and other consumables) next week sometime. Gotta head out shortly for the weekend (in the truck sadly). As Tom Petty said, "The waiting is the hardest part."
