Let the Farkling begin!
« on: March 23, 2016, 10:38:16 am »
As some of you may have seen I am collecting my new 2016 TTSE tomorrow morning and as any good motorcycle rider will tell you 'Our Work is never Done' and for me the Farkling has already commenced.  If you are not familiar with the term Farkle, here is a definition:

The term is well known in the sport touring community.

An enthusiast may be in the process of "farkling". The completed motorcycle would be all "farkled up". Radar detectors, Global Positioning System receivers, heated grips, and satellite radios are some of those farkles. Other accessories could be aftermarket seats, side and/or top cases or bar risers, which make the motorcycle more suitable for long miles.


Can you think of anything I have missed?

The list is attached; I hope.

Love, light and kindness,

Dave

Congratulations on your 2nd Trophy. With one day to go, I could imagine its kind of like being a kid on Christmas Eve waiting for the fun to begin. As far as farkling, I consider a drink holder farkle.

I did not think the rear hugger went around far enough to protect the shock?

Also good idea on the drinks holder but I stick a Camel Back Bladder into my tank bag for hydration.

Great excited feeling, may find it tough to sleep!

Wow, you're as bad as me. I had a similar list in my spreadsheet program.

Let's see, I'll post the things I got (or plan on getting), that you may or may not want...

  • Heated grip kit
  • Top box (prefer the OEM)
  • Alarm (aftermarket or OEM)
  • GPS Mount kit/GPS connector kit (I see you have the GPS, but not this listed; are you gonna RAM mount it, instead?)
  • Touratech Zumo 590LM locking mount (also works for 595 since the outside is exactly the same for those two units, AFAIK)
  • Inner bags for the panniers and top box
  • U-lock
  • Service manual
  • R&G Adventure Bars
  • Some kind of driving lights (I am fitting Clearwater Darlas)
  • Supplemental rear running/brake light (I have the Skene P3 Lights)
  • Brake light modulator (I have the Vizi-Tec SupaBrake III)
  • DealerTool
  • Slip-on Muffler (I'm eyeballing the Pipewerx Tri-Oval)
  • Garage door opener solution (I bought a keychain remote and wired it to a waterproof momentary switch and bike power through a buck converter 12v->3.3v power supply)
  • Bunch of stuff (LED strip, wiring, etc.) to add a running/brake light to the top box
  • Gyde Supply Co dual permanent temperature controller and panel mount kit for heated gear (works with essentially any brand heated gear)

:-)

    Hi Bob,

    I bought the Gerbings dual temperature controller. Instead of a panel mount kit, I use a DIN-plug on the left side of the fuel tank.
