I assure you, orange hand guards would not make this bike go faster. The limits are all in the rider! :)

Would you change anything if you had to do it again? Did the fact that everything turns with the bars bug you at all? Didn't it worsen the jarring/shaking on the bars?

HowzIt! Thanks! Literally the only thing I'd change is the way I mounted the Etrex. Had it on a little extension plate and it vibrated too much and switched off. Luckily I had a backup!

Possibly if I wanted to spend a lot more cash I'd buy the Dutch under-seat rally tank, but it's not essential by any means.

The handlebar-mounted rally lite setup is the business. Doesn't feel heavy at all - from half a tank on, the bike rides like a motocross bike!

Will hopefully be back next year on exactly the same setup.

Since I was using a consolidating shipping service out the US, I threw in a few extra bits and bobs that normally wouldn't be worth shipping separately.

Max, which consolidating service do you use? Sounds like that kind of service could save a lot of money on shipping.
