    Yes, it will be interesting to see just how much "lift" you can generate. Provide a cant adjustment and you might just get lift off!

    If:

    lift+speed > load+drag

    anything will fly.

    I designed this tank bag for my 09' 990R. Had a friend stitch it up here in Cambodia. It crowds my Flexx Enduro Hi bars a bit at the moment because I have the high/stabilizer cross bars on now. Parts are coming to fix that, pony express from America. The inside has velcro all around, with moveable compartments like a camera bag for flexibility. I love creating stuff for my bike. It is the second best therapy I know, right behind squeezing the throttle. Thank you God for the privilege of having and using great equipment.

    Felt my way in to work at 0430 through very dense fog. It's an hour ride, half backroads, half interstate, fog sucked but felt great to be back on the beast after a small mechanical error on my part.

    We are working on a new gps-mount for 990 Adventure and in this case Garmin Montana.
    It will also work with the Zumo, we will also make it for F800GS & XT660Z.
    I´m developing it together with "crazytok" here at advrider.com.

    I will post more pictures when we are finished with the testing.

    Looks good- here's my solution, similar bracket, but yours will be much better.

    Can't comment on the bag for obvious reasons! :evil But may I be so bold as to ask which bend of Flexx bars you're running there?


    Cheers,

    Sadly, Not much:cry

    I dream of being able to work on the KTM again. Even though I might have a blown head gasket after 18K of touring this summer:eek1 Hell, it might still be packed.....maybe I should look in those bags!!

    Plus, a set of H&B Crash Bars were delivered by my friendly neighborhood UPS dude a few minutes back, to go with the gear that arrived from BDCW last week. When the doorbell rang I was putting together a little CJDesigns wishlist, which coincidentally includes one of them there real purty clutch covers, along the lines of what Me, Myself, and I just took delivery of.

    But... the best bit is that Mark at Scuderia West just confirmed my bike should be ready to roll towards the back-end of this week.

    S'pose I'd better get me US bike test booked pretty sharpish then! :ricky

    Looks good:clap

    I've been very happy with my Crispy Designs set. It has held up well to lots of miles (maybe 14K of back road touring and trails since the install) and I've even tossed it on the ground once to test them:lol3

    14k Later?

    Yup! Yours was one of the bikes I was scrutinizing while making a call on who to get to do the graphics. It definitely helped make my decision, so thanks for that!

    Looks even better after the 14k too. :D

    I knew immediately the front end of this monster needed some loving attention and I know just the people to do the job.
