Love that, @mikeS - only you would farkle a farkle.
Yes, I farkled it, PZ. As I get older (much) I hear my dear old pops words ringing in my head “ Mike, it's ok to stop”.

those pegs I want...
The adjustability is worth the investment. Made a big difference to my comfort levels. The rubber inserts do a nice job as well. He's a product link:

We are talking very minor thing - I did say minor - as my dad would say “a place for everything and everything in its place” there’s now a place in my OEM top box for a cap, beanie and sunglasses.

What glue did you use? Was it difficult to remove and change the location of the mounts?

Thanks

I used the GoPro helmet tethers and you can pick them up on Amazon. These have the same 3M VHB adhesive stickers as all GoPro sticky mounts. To remove the mount carefully apply some heat to the mount and they can be removed.

Ok, another very minor modification that addresses annoying issues. Since I installed the Winderlich wide low-foot pegs, I was finding it fiddly flicking down the sides stand. I installed a little tab on top of the Wunderlich side stand foot.

I’ve been looking at those to move the pegs forward and down. Seems like that won’t work with kickstand.

I think you can move the pegs forward (without changing the stock height) in the neutral position with 23mm arm. Probably best to check it out with the local Wunderlich dealer. Cheers

Sorry I misread you question. I have the 30mm arms but with the 50mm arms and at one of the forward and down adjustment position closer to the gear shifter level that should work. Anyway, give Wunderlich a call. Cheers

Today I fitted new Road 6 boots to the Panzer in preparation for the trip to World SBK Phillip Island, heading off Sunday. Today’s fun fact - The e3 SC Project can (SC-1) allows rear wheel removal without disturbing the muffler. I didn’t check the price for a set of Road 5, but updating my service records I found that the sixes were almost 50% dearer than what I paid for fives 18 months ago.
While I was at it, I gave the front calipers a good scrub with washing up detergent, in preparation for new pads all round, arriving Wednesday. This will be the fourth set of fronts (average about 35,000km) and, remarkably, only the first replacement of the rear.
I also took the opportunity to remove the skid plate ready for a minor service tomorrow. Like the rear tyre, a few thousand kilometres early, but my trip will be more than 4,500km and it would not be practicable to do tyres and oil change on the road.
Poking around, I picked up on any remaining grime I came across in crevices and hidden areas after the three washes the Panzer has had since returning home - power wash on return to remove the bulk, a normal hand wash, and then a detailing with toothbrush and micro-fibre cloth followed by wax.
Everything will be shipshape by Thursday, ready for departure - and, likely, getting very dirty again.
I’ll have a riding companion this time, and we’re planning our route around road closures due to flooding. Again, we can expect water damaged roads. All part of the adventure.

Well Panzermann, you certainly put me and my inherent laziness to shame, I simply couldn’t ignore the grime on my bike after reading this. I was thinking of leaving it on as a winter layer of protection until your post popped up; so I’ve now given my steed a jolly good scrub

Today a quick LC pre-trip check and all packed a ready for an early start tomorrow morning heading down to Phillip Island SBK weekend.

The OEM top box is all packed and sorted - just on the 5kg load limit. All organised and everything is easy to access.

@Panzermann - Tomorrow I'm catching up with some friends for quick lunch at Gundagai. From there Tumut-Tumbarumba - Murry Valley h’way - Tallangatta - Yackandandah - Myrtleford and then onto Bright for an overnight stop. However, the flood situation is changing fast and ill double checked my route tomorrow & adjust if required.

Tonight I ran an errand. At rush hour. First time if been in rush hour traffic in a few years, had forgotten how bad ot gets here.

Side note, I'm almost done building new doors for our little free library. Tonight I picked up 0.20" polycarbonate panels for the widow panes in the doors. (Some punk broke one of the original doors with a swing of a skateboard, destroying the plexiglass and breaking the door frame.) These are much sturdier...

Replaced the Clutch lever microswitch. I've had issues with the original unit and removed it several times cleaned and straightened contacts and works for a month or so then kaput. I'll keep the old one as a spare but not worth the annoyance as it usually fails when I'm on
a trip.
