.
When two worlds collide — one functional, one fanciful — what’s left floating in their places are the gadgets and “do-hickeys” that make our bikes individuals. “Function” and “sparkle” combine, into one of the most awkward words you’ll ever say out loud, “farkle.” If you are reading this then it’s likely you are familiar with the term. Here’s a refresher just in case:

Farkle (also spelled “farkel”) is a term common among adventure motorcyclists. Enthusiasts will “farkle up” their motorcycles with aftermarket accessories such as radar detectors, GPS units, tall windscreens, steering stabilizers, carbon fiber bits, cushy aftermarket seats, and so on.

The idea is to upgrade your bike in order to improve its capability and style, which can, if one is not careful, become costly. With a little research (and maybe some helpful suggestions here), affordable farkles are within reach! So, make it comfortable. Make it flashy. Make it safe. And make it yours. Enticed? I bet.

  1. This is not a simple bolt on item (Tusk 1 1/8″ handlebar). Even the photo shows you need something like the Roxx bar risers to make it bit as the stock mount is for 7/8″ bars. This fact was not mentioned in the article.

  3. How did you put the bar ends back in that klr? Just did this mod on m y 2014 klr but don’t know how to put the bar ends back

  4. Coleman saddle pad is barely a half inch thick and pretty useless. I gave mine away for free after a 600 mile ride in which mine did ZIP ZILCH NADA for comfort. In fact, I rode through rain and it made my behind and inner thighs feel about 1000x’s worse than if I didn’t have it.
