    I forget the size but can measure it, I bought it off the net. I made a small plate and welded a stainless nut to it then welded that to the two pipes underneath. It then bolts to the bracket I welded to the bag mount.

    That might be a little bit grabby on asphalt.
    Causing the bike to topple over instead of sliding.

    What turn signals are these?

    And aceranic: Did you design those bash guards yourself? Any willingness to share the dxf assuming it would fit a 2006 GS1200 ...?

    I made a rack to replace the passenger seat. I had a reason for the asymmetrical placement of the bars that I can't remember. I am thinking about replacing the bars with a flat tray now.

    There code 3 strobe lights off a pd ohv. They are red and i have them set up to flash at different rates so when the hazard lights are on it gets there attention. There are also amber lights up front. And there is a bypass switch to turn them all on. I stop on the side of the freeway a lot for work and got tired of everyone zipping by.
    The only daily advantage is my turn signals now work much better. Although i have not put them on the new bike yet.

    I am: cheap, impatient, have no welding, machinist, photography, or electrical skills. Wrong GS, but here are my homemade items. All are kinda ugly but seem to work fine.

    GPS sunshade. Made from a cereal box, held on with a rubber band.

    Rack extension.

    Brake pedal extension. I bought a $36 TT one but it fell off the first day (despite locktite). I plan to refine it with "teeth", drain holes, etc.

    Windshield lip. Lousy pic but my best creation. Works perfect! Adjusts. Piece of surplus plexi, bent with a hair dryer, held on with Velcro.
