Personally.. I love how the low fender looks (more than the high fender) but I've had a full front lockup in the mud with the low fender and I fear that happening again more than I like the looks

Which front rotors are those? Stunning wheels

Hi Geek, Heading east this year?
Hey Matt!

I'm not sure yet. Definitely going to shoot for CJs get together but beyond that

If I could break from work long enough I'd love to run the TAT... If I really got the time I'd ride from here to my Sister's house in Newfoundland... but I'd need a month off and I don't see that happening.

I can have good income or I can have time. I gotta figure out a balance somewhere in between...

You coming out west this season?


You need to post more photos! ....you've some mad photography skills

How about if the number of Gallons you hold + the number of Grand you've spent on upgrades totals 10Gs you are a member?

I should have make it the 17G club...



Since we're being silly.. I changed the first post to that

Not sure Safaris even existed at the time; at least that extra tank looks pretty inconspicuous next to the Gobis

Yeah, that's the reason I left the low fender on, I like the way it looks more. I don't do a whole lot of dirt that's really muddy but I went on and made a high fender kit so I can swap out if need be.

Those are Woody's Caponord tubeless wheels that my wife got me for Christmas with Galfer wave rotors.

Talk.

About.

A.

Game.

Changer.

It's like a 500 pound motard.

Does your fuel capacity plus the number of grand you've spent on upgrades total 10+?
well...if we're splitting hairs, you didn't specifically say it had to be all on one bike

Thanks for the compliment.
I hope you can make it to CJ's that would be awesome and I will defiantly be there.

I understand the work / time equation, I have been very fortunate to have been very very busy these winter months
and I hope that means some nice long rides this year.

I will be in Bend for my first KTM rally this year but who knows what else may be in my cards...Pony Express maybe..

More photos as per request.

Matthew

I had mine in three weeks and Aqualine had to make and ship them. Call Francois and see if what he can do. He did say that there was a container coming over I think at the end of this month and that almost all of the tanks were already sold.
