Those CR shrouds look pretty good on the TA. With a nice baja designs LED head light it would be a good no fairing option.

Awesome vid! 19 minutes well spent. All thumpers too...and
rightly so. Were those ticks they were pulling out of their skin with
thread?
The field radiator repair was cool. Vodka and rope also appears to be standard issue in those parts for a trip such as that. Thanks for putting that up.

Great vid.

Note the complete lack of hard bags.

Good thing it didn't rain. T'was muddy enough already.

Also, it would appear that the women don't take kindly to motorcycling types....sad.

Make sure your tire does not bottom against the lower clamp, that could ruin your day

From what I've done in this area, I find you wil contact the frame downtube (and crashbars if installed and the front wheel is turned) before you will contact the bottom triple clamp.

I you possess any sense of self-preservation, you will assess the full travel of front and rear suspension and make certain that the tire stays free of hard parts.

already tried and tested for that
I bottomed hard just once, coming down from a 60 slope to a flat part
the wheel sligthly scratched the crashbars, nothing major
I am pretty sure it won't get stuck in there since wp forks have the wheel advanced 60mm more that the regular ones, and it was already happening many times with those

I guess I am going to check anyway, and I'll make myself a couple 20mm spacers just to be sure

yes, these shrouds are for a '89 CR 125/250 (from Cemoto), since several years no longer available here in Germany or Europe.
It's nice to hear that UFO sells them - still or again (fortuantely I still got one Cemoto set)

you can drop a mail at UFO

Made a little progress on the TA. Installed some new LED turn signals and extra LED indicators. Welded a couple of brackets on the engine guards to get the turn signals on a lower plane, away from the head lights. Replaced the RD07 clocks that came on it, to me, with correct RD04s. That bit of rewiring led to adding a relay for each headlight, 1 relay for the horns, an LED flasher relay and a couple of relays for the turn signals. By using 2 NC relays you can wire the turn signals as running lights (always on) and cause them to flash as turn signals, and light the indicators. This, of course is not new, there's all kinds of info on the web on how to do it, but it still took a couple of trys to get em all working right. Boy, this stuff was a lot easier 40 years ago.

I remember the days before every 3rd person had a law degree.....days when you could just take off and ride cross-country like those guys did.

Now every bloddy vacant lot has chainlink around it and all of our off-road planning is tied up trying to determine if the forest service gates are open or locked.
