Welcome and I have to ask you a couple of questions...
- details on that ram mount ball you have on the triple clamp to hold your GPS.
- what tank bag is that and how is it held?

Very nice bike.

Thx. Actually it’s a hybrid of two - ttp://www.ebay.com/itm/GGI-bicycle-H...069881 http:// as a base http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00 http://as case. I’ve just take ball from case, little bit cut ball on it and it’s works and holds superb .
- Bag New Firstgear Laguna Mini Hard Tank Bag Black 10L x 8W x 1H 80C I | eBay it’s has suction cups and magnets. The suction cups not so good at all. I’ve glued home depot magnets under plastic tank cover but it’s was to weak and one time side wind just blow it up. thx God cars didn’t crash it by miracle (there was all my things – cell, keys wallet ) so now I’m putting all to jacket. Probably over winter I’ll find more stronger magnets

Nice. very nice and clever. I use ram mounts to hold a gopro cam so I get different angles. I could use something like this.

As for the tank bag, let me know if you find a better way to secure it.
The OEM bag is too tall for me.

Yes yes. that is what I need. a small bag hard shell that holds just the essentials.
And that looks good on the bike.

Redesigned cockpit! Now it’s more clean and ergonomic and I see alert from V1 much more clear! https://www.dropbox.com/s/g4iok7p6gl...2021.20.36.jpg
