Favourite farkle

Tell me your favourite farkle, only the favourite ie one and why it's so fantastic! And if it has som flip side get it out in the open, don't be shy!
After all we're all brothers and sisters with the same penchant for orange crush.
Mine are:.....
Rather mine is; Aeroflow touring screen, ugly but very effective.
No turbulence at all, always with my visor open. It gets a bit warm in hot weather.

Your asking to pick one. That's tough, because everything I've bolted on her has been invaluable. But if just 1, I would have to say woody s wheels. Because in Mexico tire width choices are scarce.

HDB Handguards with mirrors. I kept knocking the standard mirrors against branches, which is very annoying.

not currently drinking the orange kool aid, but on both my DR650 and my CRF450x...the HDB setup is my favorite all time farkle. If Paul ever makes one to fit my 1150gs, I'm first in line to buy it.

Shouldn't you be over at the thumper/mini-bike thread?

THis isn't a DR650 farkle thread, it's for the dudes that are currently drinking the orange ade.

#1 is my Konflict worked suspension. Everything else I have bolted on is simply the protect bits like levers or the motor, or carry stuff. But the suspension actually makes the already awesome bike even better to ride, so it's my favourite because of that.

Honourable mention: Blackdog Skid Plate. Thing is friggen bomb proof and I love it.

Aw, c'mon, buying gas from a guy's front yard is part of the Baja experience!

And, yeah: Upgraded seat, side stand support and bash plate are good starts.

might be my carbon low swept back windscreen
because I made it myself , infusion molded with four layers carbon and UV resistant resin
it is tough and light and is not intimidating to the neck when riding aggressive off road
the swept back design provides clean air with NO buffetting turbulence that passes just over head
