Added some techspec tank grips. I had these on my K1200GT and really liked them. Keeps pressure off my wrists and arms in hard braking when I can grip the tank. Easy to apply and easy to remove or even move around.



Also added a touratech side stand foot plate. I add something like this on all my bikes. The only time I've ever dropped a street bike in 25 years of riding has been from the side stand sinking into the ground.



Also added a Kaoko throttle lock. I had one on another bike and found it to be the most factory-looking and high quality of all the throttle locks. There's some other nice ones out there, just my preference. A very easy installation.



I'm now about 95% done setting up the bike the way I like it. I've had it for 3 weeks but only have about 800 miles on it.

+1 on the Techspec knee grips. Perfect fit for the MTS and highly functional.

I'm really interested in your throttle control. It looks very nice. How is it?
Did you order it from S. Africa directly?

What are the specs o nthat top box too? I bought my 1200 used and it has a Givi rack already installed, but I guess I need to find a Givi box to mount on it. Is that what you've got? What size/model?

I ordered it from Twisted Throttle. I put about 15k miles on a V-strom with one. They work well and they don't look like an aftermarket stick-on.

It's a Givi V46 Tech monokey.

We have a lot more wide open spaces here than in the UK so it comes in handy.
