Quick questions:
  • Which motard wheelsets did you go with?
  • Any upgrades to the front brake?
  • R&G axle sliders?

I have yet to see a Basel kit on any bike other than the promotional photos. I wish they would take more/better photos of the kit in detail to show us why it costs as much as it does.

I live in Basel and have seen the kit a few times ( hi Joeren! : )

Its ktm OEM rally tanks plus some other bits, custom exhaust manifold and quite a few custom made brackets etc, plus its switzerland and shits expensive here.

A little ride report from the weekend riding north of Death Valley.

I spent the weekend up in Gold Point with some good friends doing some fun riding. Much of what we did may be used by others for our October Gold Point Weekend in 2 weeks.

Saturday riding- Not many pics
Here's my Ginger at a rest stop with friends on Oriental wash.



Ginger got kinda dusty out on those trails.



Ginger with a big M2W smile




Sunday- My son TJ & I decide to do the Bishop run.

A gratuitous glamour shot with a cabin along the way.




It seems other M2W vermin have been here before us.



I'm sure glad this was left behind. Came in kinda handy.



Here we are at the turn off from the pavement. There's electrified fence along the highway. I tried to get TJ to test it out. He decided not to.



Oh yeah. We'll be the judge of that.



There was nothing to stop a bike along the route.

About 11,000 ft on the way to Barcroft Lab.



What a view



What planet are we on?



We made it as far as we can go. 12,000 ft elevation at this point.





Rider1 met us for lunch at the Amigo Mexican restaurant. He pulled up just as we did. Great timing!


Dave being the great man he is bought our lunch! Thank you very much!!!



From Bishop it is about 55 FAST miles to this sign.



Not gonna stop us. Already passed several others along the way.

About 50 ft before this point is a "washout" sign. Believe it!



This is how I finished off the day.

Nice. I got that one too!

Here's a couple more with the bike.










From CO,

Really liking the white/black scheme - I assume that is the Britannia Lynx fairing? Any other pics of the bike you could share?
