They do work well together and last about equally too. I wish the rear K60 gave a little more bite going uphill in loose, rocky stuff. Otherwise, they're great.

Thanks for the comment!
Yes, they're powdercoated built up with stainless spokes. The previous owner a friend of mine had them done a long while back, still in nice shape.
Here's another pic, might be able to see them a bit better, picture quality not great as taken with phone.

Your bike is spotless, looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor circa 1998?

Cheers Scott! Both the previous owner and I have looked after it, but it does get ridden, close on 93,000 miles on the clock now!

Only bought mine in April. Didn't realise Kalahari's were so popular - 2nd photo was taken in the Pyranees.

It is the original plastic tank. The paint is bubbled underneath but so far so good on the pretty part. After 17 years I don't think it's going to get any worse.

Nice photos from a great riding area. How did you mount your GPS? I want to do something similar.

The navigation system I've fixed with a homemade bracket to the lamp body. The mounting bracket is the original magnet from Tomtom.

Migsel do a neat mount that would put the GPS in the correct position:
http://www.migsel.com/store/index.ph...od&productId=5

Not cheap but totally removable leaving no trace.

I'm very aware of the Migsel mount - It would be just about perfect (although I don't care about leaving a trace when it's removed) but I can't quite bring myself to spend $111 (at today's exchange rate) on one.
