Added some buddy pegs onto my KTM, very nicely made from Tec-cycles.

Trophy must wear both uniforms.
love my BMW, but if I were buying a new 800 or 1200 ADV bike, it would be a Triumph. They took the BMW foundation and built a faster and less vibrating house on it. And I've had really good experiences with Triumph. Only been one I didn't gel with and I think it just got mad at me cause I made it take a bath and shine up.

I love it so far... just hate having to refarkle after having my other two bikes setup the way I liked. I will very glad to past break in procedures to really feel the power.... staying below 5K for first 300 miles. Half way there already.

I thought spending half the bike's value on accessories was half the fun of it

That's only when you add stuff to a KLR.

EDIT: Excuse me while I contemplate a big bore kit for my 6 year old DRZ...
