    Nice.

    What GPS app do you use? I'm considering Sygic but haven't gotten to use it a lot during the trial period.

    Hey Brokein 2,
    How does the head light guard effect air flow? It looks like it would have a substantial effect ...either good or bad. Have you tried it both ways ?
    Thanks,

    Would you post a pic of the "Black Box"? :D
    Thanks.

    And that's a great idea for the tank bag hooking points!!! Very easy to put/take them on/off.... didn't see it before.
    How do they perform? it's TT or your own mod?

    For my GPS software, I ended up using BackCountry Navigator Pro.....works well. I also purchased additional topo maps that have a bit better contrast and viewability in the sun as the Nexus 7 computer is not designed to be in full sunlight and it as times hard to see. I normally run that oversize sunshield that was in the other picture to help...

    I built the enclosure with HDPE and a few different clear plastics (the top one being frosted to cut glare. Totally dust and water proof. So far I love having the large format, but it eliminates the touch screen ability and I am forced to use a bluetooth mouse to change things once it is sealed into the unit. I am going to work on that...

    It is built to be breakaway in case of impact and with the anti-vibration mounts the computer has survived 1000 off-road miles so far. This is all just testing and if it fails I will just get a Garmin Montana and call it good.

    As far as the headlight guard revising the airflow, I have no real idea as I installed it at the same time as the carbon windshield. That thing is held on with 3m Dual Lock which is 5 times stronger than Velcro and is now my favorite way to semi permanently mount things.

    The tankbag is a Touratech and really does work pretty well as it can be removed very easily. I wonder how long it will last, but if it does break, I will modify it to be better.

    In retrospect, I am a bit of a dork to not have taken pictures with the computer in there...I will get them a bit later. :cry

    Oversized sunshield: it looked like a big black box in the first pics, that was what called my attention the most :D

    Tankbag: for money reasons not planning to change my KTM for a TT one, so it seems I will have to make some mods someday to the KTM one... :norton

    I wouldn't say a "dork"... but yes, you should have posted pics including the computer... :lol3

    SQL Much.

    School: Hi, this is your son's school. We're having some computer troubles.
    Mom: Oh, Dear. Did he break something.
    School: In a way. Did you really name your son, Robert'); DROP TABLE Students; --?
    Mom: Oh, yes. Little Bobby Tables, we call him.
    School: Well, we've lost this year's student records. Hope you're happy.
    Mom: And I hope you've learned to sanitize your database inputs.

    Hello. I was wondering what high fender kit you have on your bike? I like the looks of it quite a bit. Looks to suit the bike better than the Touratech kit. By the way, bike looks awesome and very well set up! :thumbup:thumbup Thanks!

    Thanks for the compliments...I am just trying to cover the bases with my mods. The high fender is not a kit, merely a bunch of parts I sourced from different places and put together. The actual fender is a Polisport rather than Acerbis and then I used the front fork guards from the KTM 80 along with the required mods to hold them on the fork. I got all the info from other members here on this board. Not a tough mod at all...
