a DIY bag that is modular. I often use it to carry my (real) camera so it's handy and I don't have to dick around getting the backpack off and dig out the camera.

So when’re you going to start making them for the rest of us?? ;-)

flattering as it might be I don't produce anything but a few prototypes for myself and maybe a friend.
I find it enjoyable to design and create items (not just for the bike) but would never consider going into production.
I let others do that, if there is enough demand.

Gorgeous paint job!!!

What are your thoughts on the flat seat? Firm? Soft? Better/worse than the OEM seat?
I like it better than the OEM seat. I got both seats when I bought the bike, so I may not have bought this exact one if I only had the OEM though. But I prefer this look too, and better for duo (although, that bike is not that comfy for duo riding!).

I finally got the tank parts back from the paint shop and was able to complete the update of my XSR700. I have always loved the shape of the bike's tank but felt that the different color band down the middle distracted from its look. So that has been corrected with one solid color (GM's Atomic Orange, previously used on the '07 and '09 Chevrolet Corvette).

The seat is courtesy of Brogue Motorcycles.

Showdown: XSR vs MT-07
The MT7 won by a long margin. The 200mm front and the 175mm rear suspension travel is no match for the OEM 130mm and over the bumpy stuff my buddy's MT7 just floated while I was shook to bits.

...and your MT buddy has choosen the more common 21" front wheel for off road riding. As far as I can see on the picture. Thank you for sharing, nice to see both bikes and your useful upgrades.
