Oh yeah, this is what I'm talking about! That's the part that I'm calling the 'dashboard', that spot to the right and left of the instrument cover. Thanks for the pointers, guys. I'll start...

Let me see pictures of your dash-mounted power ports!

I want to mount a power outlet like the one below in that flat part of the dash to the left of the instruments. I can kind of, almost reach around behind the panel and it seems to be clear there for...

Gear shift lever adjustment?

I'd like to raise my gear shift lever a bit if possible. When I look at the linkage, I see two possible ways to do it. The spline contraption on the left looks pretty standard and I imagine I could...

I'm a guy who loves riding and camping equally. This way I get to spread my good habits evenly across our great land.

Yeah, I use everything I take at least once on every trip. We have tables and chairs and a folding grill so we can cook steaks on a picnic table if we have to. Two cook pots and a coffee press.

Yeah, I carry a lot of gear. I'm old and it takes that much stuff to keep me comfortable. The idea is to build camp, dump all the gear, and go ride. Meanwhile back at camp, I have a comfortable...

I have a knack for finding off-label uses for gear. Like tank panniers, for instance. Since I always ride one-up, I see that space behind my heels as a place where more cargo can fit.
