What
Why
Bike
1 Scotts Steering Damper It has saved me from crashing at speed countless times.
The biggest was when I was torpedoed by a kangaroo in Oz .
If I could only have one toy I'd junk everything else and keep this..
2 Fruity Exhaust People hear me coming and hardly ever try and cross the road in front of me without looking.
This is not the case with quiet exhausts.
3 HID Lights I never intend to ride at night but if I do I feel much safer with these.
I have two for when one stops working. (I am on my fourth and fifth units).
4 Horns Air horn and electric horn for recalcitrant vehicles and pedestrians.
I have two for when one stops working.
Health
1 Ear Plugs Custom made with wind noise filters to protect my ears from tinnitus which I got after my second trip when using a motorcross helmet.
Toys
1 Garmin GPS V - Knowing I'm heading in the right direction and possibly on the right road.
- Navigating in and out of cities and finding my hotel again, especially in the dark.
2 Touratech IMO Hours of amusement from the ten screens.

- Km/litre on every tank.
3 Spa Design Temp Gauge Outside Air Temp - Is it really that hot/cold?
