    That will make everybody say Wow:bow

    No offense to anybody but is been about three years since I check the G-Spot and it feels like a episode of "All my children" or even better like a Mexican photo Novelia that you can stop watching for a long time but at the end you don't miss much, Yes the protagonist and the nomenclature chance but the plot stays pretty much the same.

    So shows us something radical, Something new, Something that keep spinning in your Head until you can not resist anymore to the point you need to make it happen since the object is not available anywhere at any price.

    Thanks for participating from the bottom of my heart

    Ps: Try to make this Post using visual aids like pictures of the objects or at least drawings that explain what it does and how it works as oppose to rhetorical pursues that lead nowhere.

    That has already been done on another thread.

    Some of the ideas and craftmanship were great; some of the workmanship had me :rolleyes

    Here is my ongoing submission of DIY.

    I have a little question:scratch

    How can it be that is a million Threads about GS Vs Gotzilla, or how much tire pressure you need to run when the weather is warm and the wind is blowing at 8.3miles per hour.

    But nobody has anything to show even to say.

    I'm been scanning the pages of the G-Spot for a few days and I have not found anything revolutionary, or even interesting is pretty much the same stuff i was reading when i left about 3 years ago, Yeah the models are different, but the flavor of the posting stay the same

    really sad..:bash

    Well at least I promise you guys when I get my 1200 i will make a "Pennytech" windscreen that will make the stock one a lot quieter with out the need of a barndoor size piece of acrylic to fix the Freaking noise

    I made this really cool christmas thing. My wife hates it so it's been there for almost three years now. Some people just don't have any taste.

    How about a trunk for the GS.

    I made some highway pegs with parts from Ace Hardware. Who know they had GS parts. :dunno

    How about a waterproof carrier for the XM radio?

    And a replacement LED taillight. Much brighter than stock.

    I made some friends. The ugly one is Medicine Creek. He's an idiot.

    You are right. I did a bit of research and I did say wow....

    At the same token, maybe that not what I had in mind, when thinking of "custom made". Nevermind, he's an artist without a doubt. I particoularly like the engine with top glass converted to coffe table...:D

    Helmet Lock for my wife's F650GS

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=490195&highlight=helmet+lock

    Wheel Removal Tool. 22mm hex on one end for the front axle, 1/2 drive for sockets on the other. I bought a 1/2 to 3/8 drive adapter and a T45 for the Torx screw, but you can put any socket you want. I also put a hole through for a "T" type handle. You can't see it in the photo because it is parallel to the table in the picture. You can use a screwdriver or a 1/4 bar to turn it.

    Now, that's interesting. Could use for some of my widgets.
    Details on the enclosure, please?

    I wasn't a fan of the gold areas on the forks, easily covered up with some PVC tubing.
    Not to sure about the WOW factor Ricardo...you be the judge.
