Very nice filming Chris. That kind of work, is not easy to do. Takes a lot of trust by both riders. He's tall like me, your son?

Thanks Garthe, the other guy is Ev, he cleans up nicely so I use him in my vids... Seriously he's the dude I ride with most of the time, I totally trust his line choices and I think he does mine. We're both used riding in close like that, it's the best way I've found to get good GoPro video plus it ups the game a little when all ya got is 2 track .

We were cruisin pretty easy for the first part of the vid, about 1/2 way through we decided our gas would get back and remembered there was beer on ice back at the truck

The RDS Red Sled Is Waiting to be Fed

We made a big push this weekend, by installing an upgraded clutch hub bushing, installing the tank, finalizing the baja designs install, tightening all frame fittings, routing cables and installing the TCI Products skid plate and engine gards.
The beast runs, and is ready to roll bones at the Roll The Bones Rally and go to Big Bend Ranch State Park!

I am at C-10,R-15 with spring rate of 9.8 kg/mm. For 80 kg weight (I assume that is with all your gear) you should start at 9.2 or 9.5 spring rate. I think stock is 9.2, but 80 kg is near the upper limit for 9.2.

Fun ride! I've done that section before and NM surprised me. Good riding for sure. I can't pin-point it but I think we camped somewhere along this ride you just did.

As for riding, my buddy and I ride side by side a lot. Not the safest, but sure beats the dust. We trust eachother and know when we're doing it.

Love the sound of the XRR!


I think all these spotless XRR's on this thread lately have to actually go get used. Shiny bikes aren't worth much to me because it means I haven't rode them!

Thanks dude, Ayers Garage did the work and I could tell you the color I think. It looks good, and I like how the ManRack is right-sized for the XRR! Looking forward to packing up for a trip!
