DATA SO FAR...
Still a few holes to fill by individuals who haven't given ratings, etc. however, the data is providing some useful insight to our buying habits and maybe helping those with Christmas in mind, to drop hints to their nearest and dearest as to what might look good on their bikes.
I've already discussed this material with the MD at Powerbronze and used it to highlight some potential opportunities and maybe less palatable, market leadership elsewhere for specific accessories.
Maybe time to start thinking what we would like that possibly isn't available at present from the major suppliers (keep it clean please). You never know, maybe someone online will already have found it...
Again, I discussed the screen issue with the guy in charge of development at Powerbronze, so it's nice to know we're being heard.
Mike

OK Boys and Girls,
This thread has now been running from early August and since then, I've seen a few of you mention under other threads some of the new toys you've bought (excluding complete bike packages).
Just so you know, I'm quite happy to add them in this data survey also, but ONLY if you post details of your purchase under this thread.
No need for the window dressing if you've expounded on the item elsewhere. Just provide the item description, manufacturer/supplier and a rating.
Be honest with the rating, especially if you've bought something you subsequently thought was a mistake (better to give it a week or two to let the initial enthusiasm of a new buy settle down a little before passing final judgement).
Thanks in advance.
Mike

Givi V35 hard side bags             4/5
Givi top box                              4/5
Givi magnetic tank bag              5/5  I love this as I can hunker down on it with my head in behind the windscreen and chill on quieter roads ( my back loves this )
Honda heated grips                    2/5 at $300 no were near as warm as my wifes $99 oxfords on med. when mine are on high (b.s.)

Its not how much you have when you die but what you have done with your time alive which you are measured by.

 :002: I discovered why my lower fairing doesnīt look quite like the upper fairing. The lower fairing is Pb324 and the upper is Pb324c. The litte c stands for candy. It was not easy to see because the colour changes in the light and goes green in sunlight. Then I bought a Puig spoiler and painted it. The Candy Xenon blue is made by 3 layers, a base, the blue and clear. Now the Puig is instead of the lower fairing.

OK, just an idea.
There's been a lot of discussion regarding the 180 and 360 Honda Heated Grips.
One set's rubbish and the other set is as good as it gets.
If someone could post a pic of each, it might make it easier for the folks to spot the differences when they go shopping....
