Unless they changed something for this year, there is an add-on oil cooler (read that - a finned tank) that adds an additional 1.2 quarts. It was done for the earlier BMW 450 as well.

I'm getting almost all my info from ADV... There is only 1/2 hour a day on North American TV.
Main ADV dir then Racing. 650000 hits to the main dakar thread in 14 days.

I've got it bad for Laia Sanz!!!! Just look up some youtube action on her and you'll fall for her too.



Chhub isn't a fan because she doesn't ride a KTM.

another boot

I wear these. Wider than most boots and much more protection than most street boots. Not a full mx boot though.

Hunting boot type soles.

If you go back through Walters ongoing Sibersky thread he talks about the oil tank/coolers that Eric made for his and Tony's XChallanges. From what I was told, the idea came from the Dakar bikes.

Just heard on the news Wintergreen has 7", Harrisonburg has none, Greenville, just South of Harrisonburg has 5".
Nothing here in Front Royal. Not even any rain.
Looks like up in this part of the State the snow stayed on the East side of Skyline Drive.

Mike, I somehow missed that conversation. No big deal. Was just interested in seeing what the cooler looked like.
