OK, I just searched, and all of BigDogs's Terra posts are gone, and his link to his Terra blog is 404'ed...

WTF?

The Terra Blog might be on Mark's end, as I get the same thing directly from his web site........

Rode my new Terra today - very first miles put on it and there wasn't any stalling or overlean condition. The dealer said mine was his second one sold (second shipment) and the first one had the stalling problem and the owner was bringing it in later - another poster noted his second-shipment bike didn't have the problem, so it looks like the factory may have fixed this issue.

My experience too. My Terra is from the 2nd batch and hasn't stalled once. The kickstand stays put too.

WTF?
He wrote me & was upset him with my comment about his hybrid skid plate and jabbing at him. I apologized to him.

In his PM to me he said he was "outta here" which i figured he referring to him being upset with my comment. Didn't realize he was outta here with all his TR info and especially deleting it on his website.

Either others have messed with him too or something else is going on.
My comment alone can't be the cause of all of that?

If it was that, I don't think I'd worry about it.

I installed white Cycra pro bend hand guards and KTM hard parts heated grips today...

The Cycras are nice and I use them on most of my off roaders. The install is a tad more work. The left grip on the Terra is a weird screwed in plastic tube.. Two screws to remove, one top and one bottom.
The bar end weights have permanently welded in mounting hardware in the end of the bars. I just drilled and tapped those with a M8x1.25 tap for the bolts that come with the Cycras.
The KTM heated grips are real nice with a bar mounted push button controller with LED indicators for level. All the wiring is tucked into the headlight shell..
Needed them for my afternoon ride. It was 32 out and they are very toasty!
The little snow flake was blinking on my dash, I assume that means it is cold out.
I have a left over wind screen from my old CBR 1000RR that with a bit of trimming may be installed on the Terra.

My ride took me into the dark for a while and the headlight is great. The high beam indicator light needs some tinting though, it is friggin bright.

Dang-it, eakins....why did you have to insult the man's handi-work? Geez...

BigDog's got more creative spirit in his tin snips and welding torch than probably the entire rest of us combined. He can actually lay a welding bead by hand better than most auto-welders I've seen. As skilled a machinist as they come. His home-spun, simplified garage-mods are as inspirational as they get...pure gold! Best entertainment I've enjoyed all year. It's made me seriously consider buying one of these bikes.

Aaahh man, this SUCKS - squared!

At least you came forward right away, not leaving us in the dark. That's more than most people would do.
