Noob dual sport post, spooned on my first tire/tube. I really like this TKC 80.

Got my soft bags mounted.  Nelson Rigg touring bags at 30L each.  Not waterproof, but I pack my stuff in Dry-Sil bags anyway.  The large buckles are the weak point, so I swapped them out for some Sea-to-Summit Field Repair buckles.  Now to find time for a trip...

Looks like your bike is all ready for a long trip......where are you going?

Need to find the time first, but I'd really like to take a long weekend street trip somewhere.

Wife's bike not mine, Suzuki DR200se.  ProTaper ATV High handlebars and new grips, had to reroute wires for both sides and cut 3/4 of an inch off both handlebar ends to get it all back to OEM width which fit her.  Now without risers the bike fits her standing and sitting and the OEM soft handlebars I was warned about are unscathed hanging with the spares.  The daughter still needs risers in addition to the ATV High bars to get hers to fit her, thats later.

I prefer "mini" bars on my 430 and 450's.

Mini, the handlebars nominally for 85's. Stock uncut about 29" but have the full straight handgrip space for my 3XL/13 paws. Also usually higher than "adult" handlebars. Probably not as high as ATV, but it is worth looking.

No so much the bike but for the bikes. Built a strapless system for the trailer.

Installed a GSXR muffler on my DR650 using the Procycle midpipe adapter kit. Should add 100 HP!  :D

It's called compensating @Fencejumper09  ;D 

It looks much bigger than the stock muffler, but it is actually only an inch or two longer.  It is much lighter, free flowing and doesn't require repacking.

We didn’t work on a bike today, but we did get the trailer ready for Vintage!! Thanks John and Mike! teamwork makes the dream work! Still a few minor things to do to button it all up, but that is everything that was in the trailer before except the office and kitchen/food boxes. And the easy ups. Buzz will be working on solar POWAH over the next few days.
