Multiple Gizmo compatibility

I purchased a 2012 KLR. My first. Just rolled 350 miles. I decided to add my own gadgets versus having the dealer do it so I could learn the bike. I installed an SW Motec center stand, crash bars, and skid plate. It was very obvious purchasing the same brand really helps with ensuring parts are compatible with each other. I've very pleased. The crash bars and center stand are heavy. However, worth it. I've also installed the Cee Bailey touring adjustable windshield. Works great. Still up in the air on the looks. Does the job though when riding to work in the AM. I purchased the rear side guards, KLR saddle, rear, tank, and handle bar bags. Perfect for me. Handle bar bag great for cell phone and wallet. Some stainless oversized dirt pegs on the way. Bark busters next. Installing all this stuff was a good oportunity to add blue lock-tight to all the misc. fasteners at the same time. I rode through the Columbia Wildlife Refuge today two up with my wife on the back. First time off the pavement. Had a great time. Happy trails.

Since you can't post pics, can you put up an album so we can see your bike?

What's the easiest way to post them? I could throw them on Craigslist or something. I haven't explored the Forum too much. Can I not post due to being at the Junior member level? I have pics if you want to see them. You could give me an email address to fwd too.

Must not be a moderator on. Too nice a day?
You need 15 posts before you can add attachment. I just got there. But I did add an album to my profile page with a couple of bike pics before I could attach pics to posts.

tadbaker- It is a nice day! I'm in the middle of a 450 mile ride, and it's 100 degrees in central CA. E-mail the pics to me at [email protected] and I'l post them for you tonight. Or, go to the test thread and put up enough posts to get you to a count of 15. then you can post them, but you'll need a photo-hosting account like flickr ot Photobucket. Tom
