one of my other off road bikes dale

Hi Dale You have a couple of pretty serious looking bikes there,,,Just a coupe of questions On the XR at the top of the instrument panel,am I correct in spotting one of those temp gauges with two sensors? I had one and it was very handy for telling me how cold I really was... And why not fit a 19/21 inch front wheel,,surly a nicer ride!!! lastly did you make any attempt to reduce your bikes weight???? Myself I think the winch is a great idea,,,Overall ,just plain awesome!!!!!!

All it took was a long zip tie passed through the slots moulded into the undertray and a rubber flap threaded onto the zip tie.. 30 seconds to fit

Exactly what I did. Takes at least a 14 inch length, or 2 short ones. I might add for the flap I got into the garden shed and found a black plastic container. Has the needed radius, cut a section and made the flap. Cost to me, 2 zip ties.

the bike only gets more weight with acc,, it has a two temp gauges one out side and one in the vapor for engine heat, this is a built motor and has large cooling fins to keep it cool, it runs about 75 degress cooler than as a stock motor, but still runs 200 in town, the ohlins fork and shock work very good, so does a 17 inch front wheel, to many people no not try different things, the 17 with tkc off road works good, does not sink into the sand, and mud, stays on top of it, the contact patch of the tire is two or three times that of the 21 inch wheel. and your not really going to slam this type of bike off road, i have a 450x for that., and nothing works better then a 17 on the street, you can use all the 320mm front rotor and do stoppys. a big plus off rode is a lower seat height, every one ,want 10 inchs of travel, and end up with a 38 inch seat height
height, not as much fun to ride with that kind of height.. lower seat and low center of gravity always make a better bike on and of road, that why the nc700x works so well, i have had two bmw gs1200a and ags1150a, nice bikes but way to top heavy. dale

When its warm out and I can take longer rides, 70+ isn't a problem. Cold + commuting speeds drops me into the high 50's.

I am going to try to beat dduelin's record this summer. That will be hard to beat.
