SMIB sponsorship offer is still open

The SMIB sponsorship offer is still open and you don't have to sell t-shirts...... You tell me what is needed to get a SMIB sticker on the primary and backup bike and I will do my best to raise the cash.

I have been working like crazy the past month and a half putting the bike together, still a long way to go but is starting to look like a rally bike. I hope to update the blog in the next few days as there has been good progress and i've taken a bunch of pictures along the way. Until then here is a little teaser.

I took the bike out for a little shake down on Sunday to check fitment and clearances of all the fabbed up bits. Pretty much anything "rally" related for the bike had to be modified or built from scratch. Below you can see the bike with the extra gas tanks, nav tower and skid plate. After hitting a sand woops field, technical trails with jumps and some high speed runs down dirt roads everything seemed to checkout ok.

Great job man...thought I saw somewhere that you shipped already, or was that just motors and tires?
