I think it can be mounted but could rub the exhaust can more than the fender.....of course that little plastic sleeve is toast......:wink

edit: here's the TKC in that size.....

i plan to put a stack of washers on the exhaust bracket to push it out enuf to clear. thanks for the info on the TKC, since i'm an XRR tire n00b! maybe i'll try out my 908 and huck it2 hick if it's a bummer. since winter is mostly trailer sesh 4 me i'm running a soft terrain (aggressive!) track tire that i had laying around... the beast is like a sand paddle except teeth instead of cups (*someone should post about cups here)

That's such an easy set up I'm not even going to bother.

We were joined by Harcus and Hick this weekend in Moab.
Worked out very well to do the WRT together. Cool weather made
the ride perfect. The DR showed up with a DOA battery. No back
up kickstarter so it was a tow to start and let idle all day. Kind of
a pain, but it worked out okay.



Opps, what happens when you kill an electric start with no electrics.



Some sort of a proud moment for Hick?



My son Josh, happy not to be pushing and enjoying the view.



We took the time to hike (100 yards) to Mussleman arch.



Harcus performs minor repairs full ATGATT.
"Safety never takes a holiday"



Nothing to see here, just move along please.



"Lord, we commit the soul of this fallen comrade to your....."



No worries. Harcus was soon up and tearing apart the trail
on the XR 650.



This is about as much as you ever get to see of Hick
and the Super Enduro.



They headed home that night. We stayed to ride Slick Rock.
Sunday morning was beautiful. The DR had a front flat, dead battery
and I found out my spare tubes were somewhere out on the WRT with
my jacket. So we loaded up and headed home. Fun, fun weekend.
Thanks Harcus and Hick. I had almost forgotton how Moab dust tastes.

It was about 150 miles Moab to Moab that would be 10 hours without
stops.

I would say we did it a tad under that.

That may well be true. I just choose not to dress to look like one.

Something you excell at.

He was always so proud of the fact, that not being from Wyoming,
or named Infidel, his boys had something to hold onto.

Pluric did your daddy make you the sweater and show you just the right angle of execution for the dick grab?

Jesus in Wyoming at least we were taught to grab another species (not ourselves) and not to wear that sweater.

Moab WRT Addendum

Here are a few more rare pics of the WRT ride this weekend.

Here you see the crew at stop 2. Note that Pluric Sr is puffing out his chest since this ride was HIS idea.




Here you see a BRP in it's preferred environment. Disregard that stuff in the background.




Here you see a pair of Plurics, Sr & Jr, rapidly approaching the last stop. These guys were no fun since THEY never crashed. How can I get an embarrassing pics?



Definitely a good ride. But sundown at 500 pm sure doesn't allow much time for pondering.

Can't wait for a return trip!
