Change of plans, unfortunately the G/S is out and the DRZ is in. I know people in Old's Cool will give me crap, but after some discussion I've decided to use the DRZ. Since both are setup for the TAT, I decided the DRZ will be.......(bite tongue) more fun as it has a better suspension, lighter, quicker throttle response, easier to get out of trouble. My main reason(s) for wanting to use the G/S, well 1st it's a G/S and 2nd easier on me for on the return trip on the super slab. Well I'm not doing this trip to enjoy the ride back home, I'm doing it for the ride out.

Here's the weapon of choice-..sorry G/S!!!

Current modifications-
1) Case Guards (Thumper Talk)
2) shortened brake and clutch levers, rounded ends
3) smoothed sharp ends on rear brake and shifter
4) Wolfman soft bag mounts, modified with rear brace additional bolt on brace to main frame (not in picture) Motostrano mention ADV in coupon code for discount
5) RG3 Re-valved front forks and rear shock (previous owner) worked great
6) Lock tight fixes to stator and starter
7) 4 gal IMS tank (Just Gas Tanks)
8) small tool tube on sub frame (Agri Supply, $5.00)
9) Corbin Seat (terrible seat) Since installed Seat Concepts
10) Billet AL rear rack (Wheeling Cycle)
11) Highway Dirtbikes Hand Gaurds and mirrors
12) 2" Bar risers
13) Zumo 550 wired and mounted
14) OFF Switch for low beam
15) 434 Big Bore Kit
16) Radiator Guards

The to do list for the DRZ-
1) fabricate small windshield from Harbor Freight face shield (done)
2) lock tite on 15t counter shaft sprocket
