Hello, my name is Steve, and I'm an accessory addict.
(audience- "Hi, Steve".)
When I bought my new 650 last June, it started innocently enough by purchasing a new Givi trunk box mount for my existing box. Then racks for my existing Hepco Becker saddle bags, and it has only mushroomed from there.
Hepco Becker saddle bags, which have since been replaced by-
Pelican 1440 boxes mounted to SW Motech racks
SW Motech engine guards
SW Motech skid plate
Darrington Outback bar risers
Universal Vista cruise control
Kyryakin Universal Throttle Boss
Kevin Baker lowering links (and lowering the front end to match)
Oh, and then I needed some tunes for when I'm riding, so along came an Ipod (pre-VStrom), and this winter I decided I needed some real motorcycle boots, so a personal visit to Aerostich was made for some Combat Lite boots, which compliments their Darien riding suit very well. Oh, a new helmet last year, the Shoei Multitec. And the new Aerostich catalog just showed up the other day, darn it. And I recently upgraded my Ipod earbuds to Westone UM1 earbuds. I could use some new gloves, and those Ropers up at Aerostich were sooooo comfy, those are now on the short list.
I'm finding that my addiction just won't stop. Now I'm thinking grip heaters, too. When will it stop? When will it stop?! Help.
Thank you for letting me get this off my chest, I do feel better.
Editing- I forgot the OEM hand guards and center stand I installed.
