I see some room there for a GPS unit on your bars there, on the left between lights.

But only if it's skinny.

What's the farthest-leftmost thing? Garage door opener?

I think my title for you is a little long... we can acronymize it:

The SBAEVLOTPWTCOLOSFTROU

Eek!

I agree with Simple Nature: you need an action cam!! You could probably find one of those lipstick cams (as in: as small as a tube of lipstick). Much smaller than the action cam, although you can easily mount the action cam on your helmet.

Ummm.... strike that, there's enough on your helmet.... maybe attach it to your shoulder?

How can you live without it?
What makes you think that I don't have one on my helmet already? No really, I don't... (yet)

I've thought that a nice green pointing laser would be good for the helmet...

("YOU! Yeah YOU!... The One with the green dot on your chest... You're making me nervous... Stop that! Don't make me Angry, You wouldn't like me when I'm Angry!"



)

Now, if I could only get the shoulder mounted blaster from the Predator series... Hmmm, I actually might be able to do that, I have a friend who worked that movie in the props department... Yo Dragon! Howzit!..

You don't need a bar extender. You need whole 2nd handlebar (like a double-stack) ... on a quick release mount so you can just pop the whole thing off and cart it inside with you. Theft free!
