    Wethead GS Farkles - Post them here!

    Ok, boys and girls, what are you putting on your new water boxer for accessories, and how do you like them?

    So far, I have only put a Wunderlich sidestand enlarger plate on mine. I like being able to use the sidestand even on fairly soft ground, and this helps a lot.

    Thanks, Gary! Yes, I did. (Which accounts for all the rain. )

    Thanks. LOTS of fun! But now the farkling begins! Since other "Sporkhead"[1] owners are bound to be in the same boat, I am hoping that we can share info about what accessories are available, which ones we like and dislike and how they work, etc.

    BUTT... the front fender is not a head!

    I put a u-bolt style Ram ball on mine for my Garmin Montana GPS mount. I plug it into the power accessory socket on the dash.

    Gonna get a set of Jesse boxes put on next week at the RA rally.

    Here it is with the Jesse bags. I think the squared off look of the Odysseys goes will with the angular look of the bike.



    Engine crash bars from Touratech arrived the other day, so mounting those up will be the next task.

    BMW Vario bags + Kathy's liners (from Bob's) - I like easy on/off and lack f visible brackets wen removed
    Touratech cylinder head guards and side stand expander
    California Scientific (CalSci) windshield- a big improvement for a big/ tall guy)
    BMW tank bag (not that thrilled with it)
    Wunderlich handlebar bag - nice design

    Next will probably be BMW Navigator IV since I already have the mounting bracket.
    So far so good.
