It is the second best therapy I know, right behind squeezing the throttle. Thank you God for the privilege of having and using great equipment.


Can't comment on the bag for obvious reasons! But may I be so bold as to ask which bend of Flexx bars you're running there?


Cheers,

Eek

Sadly, Not much

I dream of being able to work on the KTM again. Even though I might have a blown head gasket after 18K of touring this summer Hell, it might still be packed.....maybe I should look in those bags!!

Finshed The Livery Design.

I think that lad, Crispy, done good!



Plus, a set of H&B Crash Bars were delivered by my friendly neighborhood UPS dude a few minutes back, to go with the gear that arrived from BDCW last week. When the doorbell rang I was putting together a little CJDesigns wishlist, which coincidentally includes one of them there real purty clutch covers, along the lines of what Me, Myself, and I just took delivery of.

But... the best bit is that Mark at Scuderia West just confirmed my bike should be ready to roll towards the back-end of this week.

S'pose I'd better get me US bike test booked pretty sharpish then!

Looks good

I've been very happy with my Crispy Designs set. It has held up well to lots of miles (maybe 14K of back road touring and trails since the install) and I've even tossed it on the ground once to test them



14k Later?

Yup! Yours was one of the bikes I was scrutinizing while making a call on who to get to do the graphics. It definitely helped make my decision, so thanks for that!

Looks even better after the 14k too.

Forks are off and getting some loving.



I knew immediately the front end of this monster needed some loving attention and I know just the people to do the job.

GP Moto and Riders Edge Suspension , more pics of suspension porn to follow.

Similar story here, mate! Just with James at Super Plush instead...









Jacked up 35mm, re-valved, stiffer springs and custom pre-load adjustment.

... And so it begins!

I'd love to, fella. But - to be honest - I didn't even know what you were talking about until I looked a little closer.

That's actually just a bit a duct tape covering the fins on the OEM tank protector to keep things nice while the bike's being pulled apart. I'll be whacking in a set of Hepco & Beckers for protection, but now that you mention it, in the absence of hulking great steel bars, a little bit of carbon fiber over that area could prove useful in street rider spills...

Did you have to change your side/centerstand?
