As for the wear parts... yes, I have been known to use them to the fullest I started with the Wunderlich bash plate but it really didn't take the abuse that well. Have gone with the Touratech version now, which actually mounts to the subframe as well as the engine

Mav- Would love to host a ride out west- come anytime!

A couple of these shots are from Eastern Sierras and Death Valley (California) and the rest are from Baja (Mex). Lot's of good riding to be had.

Post a pic when you get the Touratech plate mounted!

Sr Dopra- Yes, that's a Dunlop 908 on the 18" wheel. I like that tire quite a lot and have been through a half dozen or so. It seems to handle the weight and power of the HP well without burning up in no time like others I've tried. I think they use a hard compound and have a very rigid carcass. Still I've not tried a Michelin Desert--it's supposed to get good mileage too, but has tread that appears more dirt-focused than the (very dual sport) Dunlop.

I'd love to hear reports on the Mich Desert of anyone's used it on long highway and dirt trips!

I also keep waiting for Mich to release a new heavy duty dualsport tire as I saw pics of prototype tires from Dakar a couple years back...very cool
