    Homemade wateproof cell phone mount from a fly fishing box

    I had done something similar a couple years ago, worked great except when in direct sun. The phone would overheat and shutdown.

    BUMOT Aluminum and Soft Luggage Systems for your Super Tenere - Available at ADV Motorrad

    Hi Jason, I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. There is no damage to the frame, I already checked. There are absolutely no bends or buckles in the mount which would indicate excessive load. There are however jagged tears at the sharp bends (weak point) caused by fatigue. I'll have a...

    Here are some more pics with the mount off the bike. I didn't even notice the large cracks where the bends are previously

    Yep, that's the plan. I have a maker space near by that's run by an ex pro welder so will have those guys weld it and add some gussets in a few key places. Also, bike was never dropped.

    BUMOT Aluminum and Soft Luggage Systems for your Super Tenere - Available at ADV Motorrad

    All the bolts are tight. The box was on the bike 100% of the time for 2 years ~10k miles. Maybe 500mi of that was on gravel. To me it also looks like metal fatigue. The rust around some of the cracks also suggests that they started forming a while ago. Apologies for the double post. Made that...

    Thanks Jason, I'll put my address into the ticket. As I said above, the vast majority of the time the box was empty and on pavement and mostly used for helmet storage. Regardless, I appreciate yours and Bumots gesture.

    Strange, as I have yet to hear of a single sub frame failure on the super Tenere. I have seen them loaded like mules multiple times though. Mind providing any evidence of your claims of subframe failures on the ST?

    BUMOT Aluminum and Soft Luggage Systems for your Super Tenere - Available at ADV Motorrad

    I never implied he wasn't being reasonable. But 20lb is an insane amount of weight? Seriously? Guess we have vastly different definitions of that word. Just to be clear the bike spends most of its life on pavement with the box empty. I live in NYC after all. And otherwise gravel fire roads...

    BUMOT Aluminum and Soft Luggage Systems for your Super Tenere - Available at ADV Motorrad

    Hi Jason, appreciate the response. However, if you or Bumot think that 20lb would overload the mount which is marketed as "BUMOT luggage is handcrafted in Bulgaria and is designed for the rider who demands the most durable and functional luggage for their adventure touring." then you should...
