Armrest??

Anybody put armrests on their strom for their passenger???? I know, I know, but I have a problem... My brother in-law, read into this-"wife's twin sister's husband". Bought them a Gold wing last Saturday, and now the wife want's armrests???? Go figure... but anyway, I'm going to try and figure something out, would like to find some, removable armrests, if I can't find any, I'll see if I can engineer my own. So, anybody have any input for me????

Thanks,

Gary

P.S. My strom blows the goldwing off the road..heh heh!! Land yacht it is!!

you might be able to adapt these to a givi type topcase:

you'd prolly have to reinforce them with plates inside the topcase. it would take some igenuity, but i believe it could be done.

i had a similar set on my bmw ... wife LOVES 'em.

I have seen a removable passenger backrest for the V-Stroms and I bet you could find a way to add armrests onto that. Can't for the life of me remember who makes it though.

Thanks guys, the BMW armrests look promising, I'm going to look further into something like them. I'll report back when I find something that works.

Contact dan vesel at the before mentioned link. He does a bang up fabrication job and at good prices. He may be able to make a vstrom specific arm rest in short order. I know I'd be interested in a set
