Upcoming bike stuff

The BMW shop is featuring a lady (Binka?) that will speak about her adventures on her trip around the world.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 24th @ 6pm at
BMW MOTORCYLES OF PENSACOLA
Her bike is on display there now.

Also, a big group of area folks are gonna take over a section of the Georgia Dome feb 23rd to watch the Supercross race that night.
If you want to sit with us, pm me for further detail.

Lastly, plans for some Trans America Trail riding are being morphed into including a somewhat loop to turn down into Mississippi to include Sam's "Mississippi Hill Country" for the return home leg.
That date isn't set yet but hoping sometime in the spring/early summer.

That is all.
Now,,, I return the microphone back to the the goddamn chuckleheads bullshit.

I saw that bike. Benko Pulko is her name. Interesting story. Think I'll probably attend.

I'm meeting a few for a ride Saturday morning. Probably not the gnarly type of off-road craziness you guys might desire, but should be fun nonetheless. A little street, a little dirt, a little food, etc.

We're meeting at the Diary Queen on Scenic Highway and I-10 in Downtown Pcola at 9:30am if anyone's interested.

Sorry Dave, need to give you credit where credit is due. My bad, so can you post that brake caliper pic again? The one with the little white connector please...

GPR question

I just revived a V1 GPR from E bay

They don't make a mount for my DR 650, it looks like the pivot arm should be centered on the triple clamp stem.
I know it centers left and right but when centered fro and aft it doesn't leave a lot of room for the fixed arm to clear.
The only thing I could find at GPR says the fixed pin should be in the middle of the slot not at the end.
Any help would be great, I am going to need to drill and tap the top of my bar mounts and will only get one chance to get it correct

I can't speak for GPR stuff but on the Scotts SS they stress the center of the shaft that the damper connects to, should be exactly on center with the steering stem. See the last pic in the pdf.

http://www.scottsonline.com/litrack/416.pdf

The reason I know it is looked at as critical to the operation is that on KTM's when you buy a Scotts kit, you have to order it with the top bar clamp for one of the 4 positions that you can have by flipping the lower bar mount around and the 2 sets of holes. Once you make the decision and order, changing your mind later cost's you another top bar mount machined to the correct offset.

Dave thanks centered as I thought, found some pics on the DR650 thread that helped. Drill and tap then build the pin mount.
