Got the first wave of gear yesterday. Just a list and first impression here for now. I'll try to dig at every stitch and write small reviews on all the gear.
- Kuryakyn grips - nice beefy grips, similar to what my dad has on his VTX. Should work really well. I went w/o the throttle boss as I like to run a crampbuster to give me adjustability of boss location.
- Kuryakyn throttle lock - nice unit, again similar to what my dad has on his VTX(I did a lot of test riding on his bike and found his setup to be very comfortable.)
- Another cheapo set of bar risers. I'm a sucker for well priced goods, hopefully this set will live up to my expectations. Just can't bring myself to spend $100+ for risers when the $40 billet aluminum parts should hold up for me. We'll see if I'm in for another round of disappointment..
- Jetboil - used one in the past and it should serve MRE/Ramon noodle style needs just fine.
- New plugs and a couple oil filters for general maintenance.
- Seat cover - I had planned to use a shower cap or something cheap to cover my seat at nights. This cover is designed for the mustang seat w/ backrest and fits great(see photo below)
- Frogg Togg Leggs - These units are Heavy Duty! Was surprised, but not disappointed, by the weigh of them. Hoping they fit and pair well with with my H20 suit
Also had ordered a nice little inflatable/solar powered lantern for inside the tent. Unfortunately they sent me the spooky spider model
Wouldn't have minded it, but its a color changer as well. Correct one(clear with white leds) is shipped and should show up sometime soon
Seat cover fits like a glove. Rain is in the forecast today, so I left the main bike cover off to test the seat cover. Not expecting gore-text level dryness, but it will be nice if I wake up to a rainy day with a seat that's just a bit drier than my ass.
Rest of the gear should show up today. Going to run out to a local camping world and look at some tents/pads/bags in person before doing more research online. I'm always open to suggestions from you weathered road dogs though!! Nothing beats learning from those that have, "Been there, done that!"
