Sure the Suzuki DR350 is a great motorcycle but for longer trips with a lot of highway it is just torture so I had a Transalp. And now that it is so hard to get a Transalp I miss her!
Top Box – a waterproof top box that will be great for my laptop for those long trips.
Luggage Rack – Perfect for soft luggage. Some modifications where needed, but it was successful in the end.
Voltage Meter – measures how many volts you have left in your battery. It also has a 12V outlet which can be very useful if you have a phone charger, but it can drain your battery as well. Therefore, the voltage meter.
Heated Grips – for those cold days! Not a typical motorcycle heated grip, but made for a snowmobile!
LED lights – like the LED lights for the KTM, these are great if you ever get caught in the dark.
Lowering the rear – I am short, and it easy enough to lower the front forks. The rear on the other hand, took a little more work, but was well worth it.
