Okay I'll take a guess.

I see a pen, a cell phone and a coaster. The other item I was going to say was some type of digital rectal thermometer but then I remembered where I had seen one of those before.

Are you ready for this?? It's a battery powered, digital thermometer for measuring the temperature of the water in a aquarium.

Now I wonder if that could be adapted to the KLR???

I've seen several who put a digital thermometer on the bike to know if it's getting close to temps where ice is made.

On the other hand, riding down the road in the middle of summer it'd be nice to know why I feel so danged hot. I'm sure the road temps could be a fair amount higher than the dreaded Bank sign's showing.
