    Life is better with TC off. Fun right?

    Mounted up a Mosko Nomad tank bag and rode a bit under 300 miles. Local Pass opened up

    How do you like the tank bag so far? Get in the way at all when standing or seated? Ready to pull the trigger one myself.

    Added a lip to the factory engine guard - an attempt to keep a little more of the Alaska highway spray and mud off the engine and out of the radiator.

    Drips underneath are ACF-50 anti-corrosion spray BTW - I am treating the whole bike with it before I set out.

    Can't say for sure as today was the first ride and didn't really do any offroad. I think there's a chance it'll be slightly in my way standing up. So I might try moving it forward just a little. Loved having the hydration bladder though so I could drink without stopping.

    Finally fitted the indicators to the front of the bike, a bit of a faff but not as bad as the rear. Looks a lot better than original and the four of them was cheaper than just replacing the one I ruined.

    I popped the handlebars off and flipped the mounts around to position the handlebars more forward. I don't know if the rearward position is factory or if my buddy that works for KTM set it up that way while he was "demoing" the bike. Regardless, I'm looking forward to trying out a slightly more leaned forward riding position.

    Also, I received my Hondo Garage Perfect Squeeze phone mount and installed that on the handlebar. The mount + their Low Profile handlebar mount was super easy to install. It only took a few minutes. And it came with the extra piece and screws needed to mount it so the phone will be held in a Portrait position (versus their default Landscape position). My phone is a Galaxy Note 8. Using it with Google Maps for nav is a lot nicer with the phone upright. It holds the phone in what looks like will be the perfect spot to be able to see without blocking any of my instruments.

    I don't use a tank bag, so no worries for me about a tank bag blocking my view of the phone. If I did use a tank bag, it does look like the bag would probably get in the way of seeing the phone. I used tank bags for many years and grew to really hate them, so no more. A trunk/top box works just fine, for me.

    The view from sitting on the bike in riding position. The phone mount is angled down slightly to (hopefully) prevent as much sun glare as possible from making the phone screen hard to read.

    Did they change the key around in 2016? Mine doesn't look like that.

    Best phone mount on the market in my humble opinion.

    I don't know of any other that seems even "as good".

    I also really like that the "fingers" that hold the phone are nice and long, so I have the option to mount a Qi wireless charging pad between the phone mount and the phone and there should still be enough length to hold the phone securely.

    Note to the designer of the stickers. Produce the center sticker in white so that it blends in as do the side stickers......dumbass.

    New shoes. Went back to the OEM's after only managing just over 5k miles on a set of TKC70'S. Unfortunately I am not changing these myself.....yet.[​IMG][​IMG]

    How did you fit yours under the seat? There's not enough room for mine?

    Never mind. just saw yours is smaller! Bought the wrong freaking one...
