First one in Australia?

I too have got sick of the plastic versions breaking. They are a great idea, but I always have to carry a spare (and they are $25 here in AUS).
Pulled the trigger on the Omni 3 minutes after finding it on here.
Brian, I'm hoping to be able to say I've got the first one Down Under??

Cheers
Tim
PS. 106 degrees F in Adelaide today; how's it goping over there?

Order 244

Order placed.
This one is going on the BMW.
The plastic one from the other company is still on my KLR and still works fine.
Won't need to replace that.
Yet.
LOL

Congrats on the write up in Motorcyclist! By your lack of posting on the thread lately, I assume that CNC is running like crazy!

Received

Forgot to post that I received it promptly.
Haven't installed it yet, but it seems pretty sturdy with a nice design.
Can't wait for the weather to break to test it out.

Holy Cow, guess I missed an email so ADV quit sending notifications of new posts!

Thank you everyone for the comments and thread bumps ;)

I'm working on a run and have lots of machining work ahead if me since my mill was down since the 4th. Had to rebuild the spindle and rewire the motor... fun stuff!

Prior- thanks for the congratulations, but I don't think they printed it yet did they??? I think it will be in the March issue, possibly even under the "MC TESTED" section which would be killer!

Surprisingly I've had more international orders so far in 2013 than domestic! Including Australia (Backonthebike- never heard back from them BTW), Finland, Netherlands, Spain, Singapore, and of course the Ever-Awesome-winter-warriors to my North: CANADA! I figure about an order a day is great for the dead of winter with no advertising yet. I'm excited for summer to roll around because when orders pick up I can start working on some new ideas (including some neat ADV toys :)

I'm so glad all the reviews are positive and exciting! I could hand out free money and one in 10 people would complain they have to pay taxes on it... THANK YOU GUYS!

I started throwing in an insert begging purple to post reviews on other sites too. I started to sign up for a few other forums and they are almost all owned/managed by motorcycle.com and require I pay monthly to even post. Seems kind of strange to make it harder for businesses to offer discounts to your members.

I'm actually taking the wife down to Ensenada, with some friends, over Valentine weekend. Her birthday is the following weekend so its an expensive month for me.

Im going to have to order one of these. I have a lever type system on my 950 right now, and I dont like it. I have big hands, and the unit I have takes up enough space on the throttle, that it makes it uncomfortable. I have the handguards as well.

How wide are these units? they dont look much more then 1/4 inch ish...?

Dead on 1/4". need 3.25" clearance to the hand guard. I'm working on something to adapt the new v strom guard to fit too :)

Just measured, should work perfect for my bike, just put my order through!

Only problem is, we dont get to ride till late april or may due to snow and ice and crappy weather.

What do you have that solves that problem for me? haha.

Forgot to post up that the part showed up quick, with plenty of communication along the way, nice! Product looks solidly built and worth the price. I haven't been able to ride lately due to work and family obligations, but I hope to give it a test run this weekend, weather permitting. It test-fits great and looks to hold the throttle in place better than the other manufacturer's product. I'll try to remember to snap some pics when I get home tonight...
