Old fart installs some accessories

I know most of you guys won't be interested in this but if there are any old farts riding the xx on the trails like me, I decided to put this stuff on the quad.

AME heated grips - Easy install. Competitive price. Nice tacky feeling grip. 6 power levels. Auto off if battery capacity drops below 90%. Don't know if there will be more vibs since removing the fairly light stock bar end weights.

Quadboss rear rack - Easy install. No removal of stock parts other than 2 lower bolts on the grab bar. Price was right. Now there's more effort to remove/install seat. Large enough to strap on bigger stuff if necessary. Might look a bit dorky but I'm an old fart and don't care.

Sidewinder tank bag - Best feature is a can/bottle holder. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have bought it. Old farts need both hands on the bars. Holding a beverage in motion doesn't work well for me.

Put mirrors on - Like to know if anyone is behind me without having to stretch the old fart neck.

Thinking about a windshield but that might be going too far

Hopefully you guys can ride now where you are. I'm snow bound here right now. Right now I'll just stare at it in the garage and wait for spring.

xinu,
That small bag on the back looks great. Be sure to watch that dangling strap near your exhaust pipe. What, no nerfs yet?

Thanks for pointing the straps out Sid. I cut them off once I was sure that the bag was a keeper.

To Baxter's point, I think that's it for parts and stuff for now. But wait... anyone have an opinion on the Powermadd Sports windshield for the xx?
