It's not necessarily "unavailable", but "economical" that gets me. Like $200 for a throttle clamp. Ridiculous. $500+ for cruise control, etc.

Just today a friend was commenting on getting a Honda 700, an affordable bike. But add on cases, mounts, backrests, etc, and the price goes up 1,500 or more.

Bestem is making a nice living by offering decent top boxes at affordable prices. It would be nice to have decent add-ons that don't break the piggy bank. : )

+1. A friend actually gave me a set of Givi bags he upgraded from on his 650. At the time, I only had the 400 and gave them back because mounting solutions were few and expensive.

how about a nice, pre-wired switched circuit box WITH good instructions for the B400. Something like an Eastern Beaver PC8 but include the correct length wires and drilling, mounting and wiring instructions. This seems like the E-ticket solution for anyone who wnats to take the next steps in adding eceltical options like heated grips or clothing, lights, etc.

Many LED lights on the trike is a great idea. The more you're seen on the road is best. Safety is key and LED are low voltage so no issues with a battery. Should be LED on the bottom of the bike inside the front highlight.

Another one: How about a bracket that would allow us to add any style of driving/road lights to a Burgie 400? I've seen the mount-to-the-forks solutions and they are too low for my tastes. How about a bracket that mounted inside the front cowling and extended out front and then to the sides for mounting lights? Measure it, stamp is out, paint it black and sell it for $60. Offer a wiring harness cut to size for a Burgie 400 with reasonable directions (or hire micbergsma to do a video). Sell the harness for the same price and offer the set for $119. Offer lights too, but DON"T require us to use your lights - as that gets the price way up there and some of us like to shop around for lights and things. But right now there isn't a good solution for front mounted lights so most don't add them. That's my opinion anyway.

You're showing your age, a youngster would not know what an E-ticket was. Now you just pay for all day ticket. I remember when the E-ticket got you on any ride you wanted to ride.
