Getting my '06 a little more trip worthy

I'm getting ready to hit the road for my annual trip. This time down to SE Ohio and WV starting in Michigan. This is first trip with her, all the others were on my '10 Honda NT700V. Love the Honda, but it was lacking a few things that the GT has.
So, I made a couple of mods (Michigan Hillbilly style)

Source of power - scavenged from the Honda:

Attached with magnets under the lid and attached to the power block. No tape, no screws. well, no tape you can see

Added grip tape for less forward movement when braking hard.

Added Alaska sheepskin seat cover
