Great to see all the cool mods you guys have done to your bikes. I have done some to mine too, and I guess it's not a very good offroad bike any more. But thought I'd post a picture anyway

Hi all.
Happy Easter
Nave great fotos, lovely family.
Stefan mind your back buddy give it time to heal
have heard a "jingle" from the front end somewhere, sounded like my keyring was made of metal, stripped all panels and such I think now it must be the rebuilt caliper and new pads
best wishes to everyone
Chris

Happy Easter!!!

Happy Easter for everyone!!!

Season 2010 finally started here in Finland. And oh it was a blast!

After hard winter, gravel roads are almost impossible to ride with Tourances. I really need to get second set of rims with knobbles! I think it is pretty easy to lift the bike and change whole set instead of all that tire work every time.

Anyway, some pictures from Friday ride.

No possibility for icefishing on the rivers anymore


This is pretty fun time of the year. Some people are still snowmobiling and downhill skiing. Some people are riding motorcyckles


You really have to keep youre eyes open. Bigges damages on tarmac are as wide as tires and 30cm deep.


Snow melts fast and has no place where to go. In worst places water comes to roads. I think i have better pictures of floods next week.


Just some stupid idea


Even the birds are coming back from spending the cold wintertime somewhere in warm south...


It is a beatuful sight when these birds come back. So happy easter for all, and for all the boys in North welcome back to the road!! No fancypancy it is warm enough

Hi Pasi!

Finland looks just like home for me. Although you live 600 km north from me.

But the VIN number is pressed on the frame also, so it doesn't matter.

Why would you wan't to see it? Isn't it ordinary that the manufactureing year is written on a DR Big?

its difficult to find out the year of building by the mainframe number
mostly impossible
but i see it on
carb type (gas gables)
frame (paint or welding)
plastics of course if original
engine
..so if you have problems to identify the parts send pics of these and your doctor big will help you

also possible with damaged back - eyes ok

Hi Martin!

I guess east Finland is similar with Jogeva in Estonia. Lots of fields and all flat.

This year my bike started right away without any problems after 4 months standing still. Last year had bad luck with the starter, but problem were solved by You and Your friend! Started has worked perfectly since then!

Stefan!

Can you tell me the year of my bike from those pictures above?

It is registered 03.02.1992.

Hopefully back is not badly hurt. I think 95% of back problems go away in few weeks, but almost all people suffers bad back problems in some time of their lives!

Idle mixture adjustment

I just fitted the Laser Produro ( Legal ) to my Big and it works so much better than stock exhaust, both sound and performance.
What´s the preset value for the idle mixture? I have a 1996 model and the code for Sweden is E-77 but I can not find the preset value for E-77 in the service manual. Right now it is set to 2 turns to prevent too much popping but the plugs tell me that it´s too rich.
Any ideas?

Now that you are in bed and bored, maybe this is the best time for all of us to start overloading you with all our questions.

Big Time Again

Happy Easter everyone! And Stefan, you will be racing Dalmatia for sure, we all wish you quick recovery!
I’ve been quiet lurker for a long time but finally its Big time again!
My Easter present to Big - changed oil, tensioned balancer chain, replaced air and oil filters, mounted and hardwired Garmin Oregon 300. And new AGM battery helped to start after a long winter vacation.
And here we are on the road again. Going back home 217kms from winter storage. It took me 5hours to cover the distance (final 70kms was on tarmac that took less than an hour). Some pics:

Gravel roads are still wet and soft.


In the forest the snow has not melted yet.


The trees tried to stop me. I wouldn’t let them.


Estonia flood. Had to turn back from there, local people told its lot deeper than one meter in the middle.


Now these are proper water crossing for us. Had 6 or 7 of those during the trip, some more, some less deep.

G'day morse,
and the answer to your question is , 'NO'. In Australia all VIN plates have the year of manufacture stamped on them but the bike I got from chanterman in England didn't have the year on it. It was the first time I had seen that. I can only guess that some countries insist on the year being on the VIN plate and others don't.
Cheers.
