What a good picture!!!! Really sharp :o
Do you know what lens and body the guy who took it has? :)

I can see why you would want to keep her safe ;)
And I can see you surely must buy new shoes often

I think the ABS ring is not part of the hub, it might be screwed in, just like the brake disks.

Since nobody asked it, can the caponord rims be laced to the standard hubs with the caponord spokes, or do we need special spokes???

not a bad lens, if can make f4 at 240mm, probably the short end of a tele, if not paired with a 2x magnifyer)))

I just ordered a set of the Caponord tubeless (19/17") for my Adventure last week. I can't wait to get them.

Since I'll be reducing the size of the diameter of the rear tire by 1" and keeping the same profile tire (i.e. 150/70), I'm considering getting a new sprocket for the rear to keep revs down at speed. How many teeth should I go down on the rear? AND, does anyone have recommendations on some good aftermarket sprockets?

I'll keep my stock sprocket for when I want to change back to the 18" rear for my more gnarly plays in the dirt.

Did you get a second Cush drive?

I like 17/45 for dirt/DS use. (21/18" rims)

Swap to 17/42 for Street use. (19/17" rims)

All you need to do is swap the rear axle block 180 Deg and you shouldn't need to even adjust your chain.

The SM and SD have a shorter chain, so they can run an even smaller rear sprocket for higher speeds. The smaller you go in the rear sprocket the longer the wheel base gets. I find that 17/41 w/ my 17/17" SD wheel setup works pretty good for general use. Stable and geared about right for general use.
