  • Bark Busters Storm hand guards,
  • Truimph fork protectors,
  • Skid mark rear hugger ( this is the longest one out thier unless your willing to pay stupid money for a fareast import factory M) i will be doing a small mod to this to extend another 125mm to stop the underside being destroyed everytime it rains. now removing and replacing with a powerbroze and cutting up the skidmark to extend this see later post. pictures will be forthcoming on completion

Hi David, Southerner here from UK forum.

Unlike yours for some reason, I didn't have enough spare flex in the wires for the new horn so I'll have to do a slight mod after Xmas.

I had the same problem also, but just made the mount a little longer.

Hello DB1965, im loving all your farkles :)
Im wondering about fork protectors and i like yours, would you mind telling me - are they a particular model or just general 'triumph' ones. An idea of where you bought them would help me greatly, they look like they will fit my 700S. Thank you
Ive ordered, a double bubble screen, pelacon crash bungs and a skidmarx rear hugger, ive already fitted a cig lighter adapter in the frunk and im going to have a go at a rad protector from a mesh magazine rack, amazon £4! First DIY project ever!
Ive had mine lowered and the dealer didnt chop the stand, then chopped too much! My bike and i are currently in Portugal so the stand thing has been a proper pain. Anyway, hes got another stand to chop i hope he gets it right this time :)

Why did you need the power point on the handlebar?

Like the farkles, especially the rear hugger.

How do you find the Tom Tom SatNav, I have always used a Garmin in a Mrine box?

Hiya Tim
i will start from the top the 12 volt oxford handlebar charger is used for charging the drift helmet cam on the go which only has a 3 hour battery charge i am often out for 10 hour days less hassle changing batteries and carrying them, when touring camping i then don't need a site that has electric hook ups every night same goes for my helmet comms uses the same mini USB coiled lead, i tend to leave the helmet comms me and my bro use Nolan B5,s now fits into our Nolan helmets nicely to the last 2 hours of the riding day that fully charges it ready for the next. i also use this charger for a small travel tire inflator less room than the 7 C02 canisters it took last time i had a puncture out in the sticks lesson learned.

The twin USB in the funk I use this for the Phone /tab /Anker power bank/Rav power 5-1 this keeps this electronic stuff fully charged for over night use as that's when im using it heavily whilst wild camping ie skype, transfering hd vid files to portable hd ect via phones wireless hot spot ( the wonders of modern tech ehh) i also use them to charge my led head light normally change stuff around at stops throughout the day never had a prob yet but hard lesson learned previously lets say a learning curve and as much effort as lifting the lid of the funk all my power outlets are switched so no worries thier.

For me the tom tom great & works well with the tyre software, the winding routes is fantastic for justbpress and go found some real gems of roads no hassle with cases as it WP, I previously used the wife's tom tom in a Givi WP case but major hassle when stopping getting it off ect, the rider just unclips and in my pocket so yep very happy with it, just hurt the pocket a bit when purchasing it still haven't told the wife how much yet! never had a Garmin so couldn't compare mate.

The rear hugger another story war and peace im afraid what i have is a skidmark hugger this has the longest tire cover thier is on the many various huggers out thier except their is one from the Korea but didn't like the look or cost, anyway the hugger does not work as picture below this was one day on A's & B's an a odd country lane.:(
[URL=http://s937.photobucket.com/user/david_bennett4/media/NC750Xrearhuggerfail_zps4bf408a1.jpg.html][/URL]
as you can see a right mess!!!!
the skidmark was a bit flimsey and hasn't actually stood up well with chips ect
so i am looking to buy a power bronze hugger slightly smaller cheaper and sturdy but looks great my brother got one on his 750X then going to mod it by extending the tire coverage by cutting up the skidmark as this has the correct curvature i need this should give me a good 6 inches of more tire coverage stopping all the fling 9 I hope fingers crossed)will use a couple of rubber strips to stop vibration and rivet it on ill post some pics on here when i do
well you did ask !!! :) nearly brought the NC in black myself same for my bro but we both ended up with the silver and red ones heading up to the peak district camping for the weekend in maybank hol with some others from the uk forum i organised previously but dont use now hope its as good as they say any good bits you found would be appreciated.

Cheers David :D

David, is that not a Skidmarx hugger in your photo? The Pyramid I know of is smaller, retains the stock chain guard, and is attached with merely a single wire tie.

That Givi top box is a damned sight better the the honda unit I had fitted to mine, I believe it is made under license by Shad, bracket it at least 4" too short, takes away all the pillon room.

Certainly think I'll swap that out.

Hi DB1945, nice pictures !

Do you have any compatibility issue with those two ?
- Givi tall screen.
- Bark Busters Storm hand guards

I have tried the BBStorm SW-Motech handguards, and I had to return them because they were knocking on my Givi tall screen.
Impossible to use the steering lock without cutting a large part of the screen...

yep i know exactly what you are on about, i have also fitted S W motech barback risers up 31mm back 21mm this enables givi tall screen to clear the barkbusters on both locks cleanly problem solved.
