    "They do look nice, don't get me wrong. I'm just being my usual cynical, prick self. YMMV; who knows. In a yr or two, come on back and shove it in my face if I'm wrong :-)"

    No problem! I had know idea that, good LED lights cost that much! I broke open all of my piggy banks and cashed in all of coins and stripper money, to get this bike! At this point there is no way I could have spent that much.
    My night vision is not what is use to be, so I got them with the possiblity of them failing. I have a Blazer LED on my XR650L which so far has held up well.

    My bike had to have been built on a Friday at 430pm. Sloppy install, deformed rubber seal. But at least this coolant leak will be an easy fix.

    Stage 2, now there's windscreen, tablet nav, bags, mirror -- damn, I'm only crashbars and passenger pegs away from GS :uhoh

    Testing ridability for on-coming trip -- bags don't make it any wider and can't really feel them at all otherwise that they work like stegpegs supporting feet and giving hands some rest.. I don't like mirrors but mounted further on front it feels a lot better than bar mounts. Windscreen takes some pressure away from chest and keeps eletronics cleaner but helmet still gets fresh air - no complaints on speeds below 130kmh.

    I use those Blizzard Bags (size M), too - Enduristan is THE bang for the bucks btw. - and while keeping rear plastics, I strap them about 15 cm further back than in your photo, rear strap about to hit the logo on the seat. Sitting nicely without bouncing around, while keeping full room for boots and never make me sit on the front strap ;)

    Oh and I'd kill that tablet mount on my first ride :D

    Edit: Why the f00k you still did not mount the billet tripple clamps?!

    The idea of my bag placement is to keep them as center and as low as possible. And support legs to remove the need for fighting the wind with hands - similar to stegpegs. Being soft and not too wide I can still leg paddle without problems.

    My tablet mount is pretty strong, it has took fair amount of beating during past years on excs and 790. Only thing to break is ram mounts other parts are 8mm HDPE and it's slightly bigger than tablet. I hit a tree tablet edge first once and all I broke was 7€ ram ball.

    I've been too busy breaking & fixing my 150tpi plastics to have time for billet triples - maybe next winter

    First day of the CPAAT. Still clean.

    Third day. Pretty dirty now. Stayed at a very cool spot - the Austin Dam Memorial Park - in memory of the 76 souls who died in the flood of 1911 when the poorly built dam gave way.
