If you do some searching, you'll find several KTM riders with bike racks. . . . it's on my to-do list, but I still haven't made it happen.
Dropped in on the local BMW/Triumph/Duc dealer and gave the 800XC a proper exam. She's a lot heftier than I had pictured. Seems somewhere between the 800GS and 1200GS. $13K OTD the way they had her rigged up with aftermarket.

Bonus is that there is a local guy that manufactures bike racks for motos and they gave me his contact info.

I'm semi-interested in the 800s, as I can get the 19" or 21" front wheel that my 1050 lacks. Buuuuuuut, the prices on them scare me. I'm not in a position to make that kind of commitment.

They are mountain bike shifters. I do have a set of 8 speed Durace bar end shifters that would work. Send a PM if you are interested

So one of us got let go for texting the wrong thing to the wrong person today.

Evidently, what *I* thought was slightly crude, yet funny, wasn't taken that way.

Since she has the owner wrapped around her finger, I get the boot.

I got the impression my days were numbered when they brought in the new guy and they were just LOOKING for a reason. Since I gave em one, guess what?! [George Thorogood]Out the door I go.[/GT]

I knew this gig was temporary, I just didn't figger on THIS temporary.

Very sorry to hear that M. Sounds like you are well rid of them...as one door closes another opens and all that good shit.

Good luck

sucks M, onward and upward, and no texts or emails next time that you wouldn't send to your mother at a workplace - it's all too easy these days to use that as "the" excuse to shed someone. I see it all the time.

can anyone confirm if these will work with late 90s/early 2000s Ultegra derailleurs in a 7 or 8 speed configuration? I know I've read that some D/A stuff has different SiS spacing than non-D/A but I'm not up on all the nuances.

They will work.

I used them with both cassettes and thread on freewheels on my time trial bikes (all non-durace, usually Ultegra or 105). If you adjust the cable correctly so that 1st is locked out, they Should work on 7 speed also. If not you'll have an extra click when you shift into 7-8 because 8 won't be there.

You guys can let me know if I missed anything or am wrong.

Sending you a pm....

Sorry to hear that Gummee. You have to be really careful in today's society with what you say or do.

We have this old dude that gets off trying to peak down shirts and stuff. One guy used to call his desk and tell him so and so has her shirt unbuttoned and you can see straight down it. Next thing you knew he was scorching the linoleum getting down there just to ask her a dumb question and get his peek.

One day he was asked to take office pictures for an annual report. Same said secretary was asked to turn so he could get a better shot from beside the counter instead of over it. So that she could cross her legs, she unbuttoned the bottom button on her pencil skirt. The Fktard file a sexual harassment grievance against her for doing so!!

The girl was smoking hot and super sweet but, I think they were already trying to get rid of her and he finished the poor girl off.

Now our secretary is a short little butterball that has the fashion sense of a 13yo and the personality of a 3 toed sloth. She wore black spandex nickers under a ratty camo mini and a T-shirt to the office Christmas party at a country club!! We went from Fashionista to Fashion disaster!
