Three "Upgrades" in One Week!

Spent the past week in crappy weather so I decided to farkle up the Strom a bit.

Here's what I did:

1. Upgraded the brake calipers to Nissins from a 954
2. Finally got around to putting on the Contour Roll Bar Mount
3. Bottle top remover

Haven't got a chance to ride the bike due to weather and me having some bronchitis so I can't comment on the brakes yet. I was hoping the Roll Bar Mount would allow me to use the Contour camera in it's waterproof housing I have for it but no such luck. Haven't tested the bottle top remover because all of my beers are lever tops!

Here's a pic of upgrades:

I also added this to the strom just this afternoon:

Misc. tool holder!

Just mocked up with zip-ties right now but you can see where I'm going with it. With the bags on you can barely notice them:
