Come on guys, you can make most of this stuff yourself out of scrap metal and a power drill.
Think, do yo REALLY need a stainless steel resevoir cover in the first place ?????
You've been talking to Austin Vince haven't you
You're absolutely right, that most of this stuff we probably don't really need. Of the stuff we really want we could probably make it ourselves cheaper, but I'm quite happy to spend my hard earned on a bit of bling. And not all of us have got the time or skills to make it robust enough for the trips we want to make.
All personal choice really. I'm just happy that we've got enough resources about that we can do it DIY, or buy it off the peg. Not everyone has got the option.
I did get the large rear rack for my 950 Adv from these guys, and I must say its very good. Cheaper than the Touratech one by a few quid, and I like that I'm supporting a British firm.
