This is my current set-up... Good street rubber would be a hoot.. An easy bolt up second set makes sense. Comes down to the $$$$.

Also wanted to get a cush-hub for this wheelset. Was planning on building my own, but found a great deal on this 19/17 wheelset and jumped on it. The cush-hub is amazing. REALLY smooths things out. Had a cush-hub on my old LC4, but never rode it without one, so didn't know the difference. Have another cush-hub that I'm going to buy some spokes for and lace-up for my dirt wheelset. Tires came with the wheels, so I'm just going to burn them up before I buy something a little more DS-oriented.

Long Beach. LBGP. That's the a parking lot section that connects to the top of Shoreline drive. The race is this weekend.

between starter motor and oil filter LHS, if you still have the little bracket that's were it lives.

You can see mine attached just above the Countershaft sprocket in this pic. The bracket goes on one of the oil filter bolts.

Some more 525 fun, entering the Caromom mountain range in Cambodia. Why don't all river crossings have nice small stoned, easy to ride gravel bottoms?

Dang! I would have taken the clutch. Oh well.

Some Utah pron. Side stands don't work on the salt.

B-Rod - I don't believe the bike fell over, I just figured the bike was used to the lean angles with your ice screws. Was it your first time in the warm climates or have you been down before? Gorgeous pic of the 525 airing in the sand.

I should have been clearer. I turned off the gas and laid the bike over, since there was no chance on the side stand working. I have been to Utah five times now, and every time it is better. V-Strom one year (barely counts), two times with the 640 Adv, and this was my second time with the 525. Funny you mention ice screws, riding on the Salt Flats is almost exactly the same as riding with the less grippy carbide studs on ice. Screws will get you super low, but the studs don't grip well on ice, but have enough to allow for consistent drifting, which is what the salt was like.



Maybe I'm chicken, maybe I'm a better photographer, or maybe 530s fly better.
