Cross Dressing... ?

“Dressed” it up a little with a “cross” bar, the bar (clamps) was way to small and of course the biggest bit I still had on hand was only 1”.. So had to ream it out a bit, in the end I barely got it to fit.Got a new blue Honda crossbar pad on the way, in the meantime I threw on an old skullcandy one I had laying around...

Wunderlich... used to have it on my R1100GS. but with a crossbar is perfect on the Africa twin. Though they will work without.. just not as elegantly I reckon.

Just search for Wunderlich Handlebar bag.

I know rugged roads sells them.

Ive never liked the idea of a tank bag, popular though they are. These little bags are handy for those items that I don't want cluttering up my pockets. or have hidden away in my luggage. takes seconds to remove and carry away when the bike is parked up. They even provide a shoulder strap. Also.. if you have a smart phone there is a port for the cable so it can be on charge from the accessory socket, if like me you use a dedicated sat nav and prefer the phone turned off and put away.

Where did you get the crossbar? Although I love the color of mine, the bar itself is a bigger diameter and a pain in the arse to put a pad on it. Plus it is a bit longer...
