Great pic. Was that using the timer? I've got to start doing that, every time I go snowmobiling, quading or biking I come back with half a dozen pics of my ride in front of some scenery, but none of me.

Nicely done. My biggest complaint with the HT guards is that they block the radiator cap- easy fixed with the build-it-yourself model (at least in v2 ).

We have been having a friendly compatition on youtube with some of my subscribers and guys i subscribe too. Check it out if you have time. The comments on the video page is great. This is not my fastest pass. I wasn't really trying to make it a race when i did this. So i'm going to try another pass on a not so busy road next.

Hmmm, 280 pound, hey? Reckon I'm about 180.... that combined with a couple of basic mods on my 08 I think I can get to 60mph (100kmh) a little quicker than that

Should be closer to about 6 seconds, I think.

Which isn't bad compared to my Bandit 1200 at 3 seconds...

6 secconds is closer to what its suposed to do. I think i could probably get it to about 7.5-8.0 with a good launch. There is no way i would get down to 6.

Went on an overnight camping trip and snapped a few more pics.







800km round trip, all dirt highway. Never caught any fish, but I did have a good time.

I see those washboards!! Hug the shoulders! That sounds like a great ride, but with a stock seat? OUCH!

I had a Thermarest seat pad over the seat, but I don't think it made any difference really. My tail bone is killing me today.

There really wasn't much washboard to deal with, but there was a lot of pea-stone. That gets old real quick. Some of the stretches were a good 40kms long of loose, deep marbles.

Judging by the oil on the ground I must have been hot on the heels of a Harley rider
