Gadgets for my V-Strom

Ok, just got all of my gadgets (GPS, CB, XM Radio) installed on my 05 DL650. The whole thing is plugged into Mix-It 2 Headphone Anplifier. Its really great as this Amp has a Priority Override input so all of my device mute whenever my CB is activated. What do you guys/gals think?

Nope, not at all. What the picutre doesnt show well is that I have Pull-Back risers, which gives me plenty of room for the key.

My buddy is calling this thing a Wing Jr. because of all the toys I have on it.

On a serious note, how much wattage are you pulling with all that and how much overhead do you have left? I keep reading that our 6fiddies don't have a whole lot of room on the alternator for accessories, and I am definately looking into some heated gear and grips, as well as maybe a few gadgets of my own.

I am getting corrupted by the BMW riders I keep hanging out with...

Something's missing. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's still a little useable space there to work with.

Outside air temperature guage maybe?

Maybe a grandfather clock?

Yes, a DL650 can definitely do a major smokey burnout!!

There's still room for a juicer. How are you supposed to enjoy fresh squeezed juice out on the road without a juicer?

It's not an adventure unless you need a tent, a passport, and a leather glove for your shooting hand.

How do you keep all of that stuff from disappearing when you park it?

To be honest with you I haven't totaled the wattage. I think I read somewhere that the wee-strom has about 150 extra watts and I doubt all of my gadgets draw that much. Now if I had to add heated grips and/or aux lights I might be concerted.
