Bits and bobs

Popped some hard cases plus a rack/seat back on it as well as some slide-on foam grips which has helped with vibration-induced dead hands. Engine cover, a horn which doesn’t sound like a child’s tricycle and bars next when I have the time.

Hi Chris, do the foam grips make a big difference and where did you buy the rack/backrest?
Thanks, also from los.

I have foam grips and they do make a difference. They are not a complete solution, however.

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

@hombre : Hey! The foam grips made a surprising amount of difference. I got them from Lazada for around 120 baht. The backrest and rack were from Zeed Parts: nice people, great English!

I got the panniers from Lazada too. They needed a bit of drilling to make them fit but they were the size I was looking for (useful
but not too big), have brake lights and were cheap as chips at 2,000 baht for the set. They took about a week to arrive and I’m well happy with them.
