Attempted to mount some Barkbusters Storm handguards (I was hoping it would keep my hands from freezing less). No dice--the stock handlebars don't have enough space to mount the single side mounts....

Just finished Ted Simon's Jupiter's Travels about the four years he spent riding around the world on a Triumph in the mid 70s. Very well written--better than Ghost Rider by far. Worth reading if...
