    FFS don't tell Pluric, he'll have the state troopers turn me back at the Utah border :wink:. I'll sneak it in and see if he notices.:poser

    That looks very effective. :clap

    Here is what I built to do the same thing plus hold my GPS.

    First I made a templet.

    From the templet I made the (two) brackets.

    After the brackets were made (and powder coated) I clamped it to the bike (using a 3/8” bolt as a locator) and drilled the mounting holes.

    Mounting hardware and the 3/8” locating bolt.

    Right side mounted.

    Left side mounted.

    The hole on very the top of the mount I will put a cross bar that will hold my GPS. End result is I have a dual purpose bike with a dual purpose bracket. It stiffens the wind screen mount and holds my GPS.
    Because of my metal inventory, and my contacts, my cost on this project was $00.00. :D

    Looks like some kind of marital aid I've not seen before.
    You know what they say "Once you've had black...."

    I see you recycle your Depends to cushion your sex toys. Great idea.:thumb

    Very cool! Great idea

    After my weekend ride, the two braces performed great. I honestly didn't pay much attention to them, I guess that was due to my Montana not flopping around like before...:lol3

    Ray you are getting up in age and might need Depends just like pluric does now. I am sure he can recommend which ones to buy. :wink:

    PM Jaumev. He's the Development rider.

    I think there is removable oil filter cover and extra holes for the drain plugs so you don't have to remove it.
    Don't know whether that is his personal version or a production change though.

    That's his personal version. Been in touch with Cedric and it sounds like they are willing to make one-off changes at an extra cost. Will check into those mods.
