Zip tied up a small crash bar bag. Not sure how I feel about it.

Hope you don't drop the bike. It'll be a "crush bar"

The phone mount only works with my life proof case. And it's broken twice now. But I still like it.




The light bar I'm not sure I would recommend. The beam is too focused for my tastes. I don't have much to compare it to tho.

Focused beam is good in big game country at night... We have Elk the size of horses in the mountains and Mule Deer of small Elk..
Be aware if your doing jumps the front forks tend to bottom out and thus smashing the light bar into the front fender..
Don't ask me how I know,, :-\

I feel your pain brother!  I had to "explain" to my wife why I was getting my Tenere.  These lucky guys have wives that are "making" them get one.  I had a boss whose wife would buy him custom pistols....for no reason other than love.  (sigh)
I didn't have to explain why i bought my Tenere three weeks after getting totaled on my Triumph Tiger vs Volvo wagon trying to get closer to Jesus..
I just pointed out how she bragged so much of her days riding horses, barrel racing and falling off jacking up her knees and getting back on.. ::009::
She was still Pissed why I didn't wait.. I had insurance money in hand and figured if i waited to long it wouldn't happen at all. That sudden impact sound didn't get out of my head for over a month along with the disconnected body from soul feeling for a couple weeks. The Tenere helped me get over all that.
This bike washes out it happens fast and go's down like a dump truck on ice..
Nice 10 but something more precious your cool wife!! ::026:: Stay safe, stay third eye alert and stay smart..
Now you need to buy her one!! ::016::

No jumps for me. But when picking out this light bar I tried to find the shortest one just for that reason. It's close to the right distance from the fender, but you're right.

I'm trying, believe me. However, she is very much a saver and me the spender. I wanna get her a fuel injected XT250. (I wanna have one too) She likes them but is unsure if it's worth it to her cuz she likes to right pillion still and commutes an hour one way on the super slab to work.
