    Keep the DRZ if you want to do some more challenging d/s. I have a few bikes in my garage and if I had keep two, it would be the DRZ and my tiger roadie. Mine is 8 years old and worth much more than it's value.

    I am also 5'8" and have the adjustable mechanism. When it's hot and windy, I lower the screen. When it's calm and cool, I raise it.

    No. Nuts would be if you were posting this some time between October and May.

    Maybe you found another reason to disable the ABS when going onto dirt.

    Definitely a well thought out farkling. Does the larger rear sprocket affect the highway performance???

    Anyone have the pin-out for the Alarm connector? What I'm looking for is a wire that will tell me the high-beam is on under the seat.

    Dang, nice farkling.

    I was happy to just pick up a new (demo) Triumph Tall Adjustable windscreen for $115 yesterday. Seemed like a good enough deal to try it. I was going to do a Madstad but at the price if I don't like it I can get back out of it without a loss.

    tucson, AZ, It's a dry hate.

    One wire from one of the headlights (also seems to share low beam) seems to go back to pin 9 at the alarm connection but that is shared with some of the other lights as well.

    Looking for a small magnetic tank bag for a phone, glasses etc.. I just want something I can just throw on the tank (figuratively speaking) and head out. I have a Wolfman for trips but it's a strap model so a bit more of a PIA to fit than I'm looking for here...

    Cheers

    My wife likes her Bags Connection "Engage", easy on and off but you'd need the tank ring.

    Joe Rocket Manta fits very well and will hold everything you mentioned.

    I used the Rocket until I got the Triumph City tank bag and it just stays on all the time.

    I did think about that actually but I figured it would then interfere with the Wolfman tank bag I use on trips, hence I was leaning towards a magnetic bag.
