    LOL! I didn't even catch that :D

    There are a few double mounts, yes. I might try to just fabricate something, but I'm very busy and it's just easier to give somebody $50 to figure all that out for me.

    Is that the Blackhawk or Enduro?

    My Wolfman bag does not fit worth a damn, it's just too big. I can't get it tight down on the tank, so it just flops around. I have it fully cinched at the top as far as it will go, and the bottom is cinched until the buckles are on the seat; and it flops about 4" to 6" around to either side of the tank.

    I'm not sure what model it is, I think it's an older version of the Explorer or Explorer Light. It's quite large, though it fit on my KLR because the tank is so tall.

    I like that idea. I’m not so sure that the 790 needs rubber handlebar mounts. The parallel twin is much smoother than a big bore single or a V twin.

    The way my Scott’s mounts on my 250 SF-X is just a couple of bar spacers with ears to bolt the Scotts on to. I would like to try something like that before I go the rubber mounted direction. I have the dampened BRP on both my 690 and 1190. It seems to work fine but I would like a lighter set up

    How are those straps routed to the frame? My GL Fandango straps are in about the same place. I went over the seat and under the plastic to be able to tighten the strap effectively. I would rather not go over the seat, as that makes the seat and side compartments difficult to access.

    Why?
    I like this method of attaching a GPS, much better than the ram mounts IMHO.

    I took plastics off to get to frame. Then pulled tight and put seat on last. Just works. If the buckles were any longer it wouldn’t work and the straps would need to be over seat

    I love that the first thing so many of you guys are doing after getting your super light butt kicking adv bike is to bolts huge bags, skid bars, extended screens, etc on it. I dont think i've seen one pic of anyone getting rid of those garbage karoos... but lotsa guys getting windscreens, lol.

    "Light weight" is relative. I'll be adding Hardracks, Panniers, different windscreen, lights, etc as I get more seat time in AND the manufacturers catch up. I'd be adding the same 'heavy' stuff to whatever Adv bike I got. Whether it was a Tenere, AT, or GSA. So, again, it's relative. I had the above heavy stuff on my Cb500X and it weighed just about the same as the 790, with less than half the HP. My reason for getting this bike wasn't to strip it down and make it a light weight dirt bike-I have a 500EXC. I'm building a long range Adv bike that I can take almost anywhere hauling a 'relatively large' amount of gear.
