    I made a thing...

    I got a wooden seat bottom and cut out a blank for the pillion . Going on my first big trip with my 2020 750dct in a couple of weeks. There's no way I was going to remove my dry bag with every fill up. So, I made a thing. I'm too cheap for a Dale's Rack. This a cheap alternative...did I...

    Really liking the DCT

    I've got 440 miles on my DCT. I'm still reaching for the non existant clutch lever when slowing down This bike is so easy to just get on and go. Going from a R1200GSA to the NC was a leap of faith. I was hoping I wouldn't have buyers remorse...and i haven't. It helped knowing I was downsizing...

    Helmets, speakers and ear plugs

    If you have a helmet with built-in speakers, do you still wear ear plugs? My ears can't handle wind noise so I always wear earplugs. I can imagine a helmet that fits so perfectly it covers the ears and has speakers. But, I don't know if such an animal exists. If it did, I would think it is...

    Seahorse cases?

    Found these on the Tenere forum. I've never seen them before but they look like a good alternative to expensive cases. I'm sure you would have to get the attachments from one of the regular suppliers like Givi, Touratech, SW Motech or any of the many others. For those of us cheapsters, I think...

    Packing heated gear

    For those with heated gear. I just got a heated jacket and was wondering how durable they are and how to pack them. I'm hesitant to roll it tight like I do everything else. Afraid I'll break wires or whatever makes it work. What do you do?

    Anyone else?

    Concerning the thread subscription tool on this site. I really like this website. It is easy to use and usually, family friendly. My only suggestion is to make the subscription to threads easier. I've lost threads (my own fault) from not subscribing to them. To subscribe seems convoluted to me...

    ArkanSTOC 2015 is now September 17-20

    Ok Ok! I know this is very close to my previous thread (dates wise). I think I can do both. This is put on by Bug Dr. and started out as an ST owners rally but all bikes are welcome (so saith the Dr.) It's at the Hub in Marble Falls Ark. Many of us have been there and know what great roads are...

    Led strips for additional turn signalsemergency flashers

    I wired these into the harness by going in through the plastic cover in the rear wheel well. One screw to take off - that's it. I got some weather proof connectors so I can still take my side cases off with ease. Was going to take pics of the install but forgot.... I'm sure I'm not the only...

    Another seat mod thread -

    Hey guys, for your consideration -or not. I'm not cheap, just poor. I bought the WalMart $20 4-wheeler seat pad and modded it a bit. It will work for some. It works great for me around town, I've yet to take a long trip on it but that's coming up in March (Hillbilly Hangout). I didn't get a...
