That helmet you had that busted...it was defective. You should send it back to the manufacturer and ask for a replacement.

with the wheel turned one grip is pointed up and one down. This may sound obvious but put the helmet on the one turned up. Dont ask how i figured that out.

That must be the same group that had a mining operation in "Kennecott", AK. The mine has been shut down since the 1930s, but the old structures are still there. I visited last year.

I destroyed one once dropping it from waist height while stationary onto concrete, all the polystyrene came out of the crack like it was under pressure...
Was that the $49 special

Really nice! Are the side racks for wolfman luggage ? Do you have a pic with the luggage on the bike?

Thanks

My new winter ride

I usually ride a BMW F650GS Dakar and like it verry much - but for some more serious offroad riding or for bad conditions it's a bit too heavy.
I looked for some time for a lightweight and reliable winter and fun ride that would fit to limited budget and came finally back with a Suzuki DR350 form 1991 - kick starter only model. It was not in the best cosmetic condition - but the engine was starting verry well and so I gave it a new home.
Some work was necessary to make it street legal again and yesterday I finally passed the technical inspection and got the registration.

The first ride out to the fields

applied some dirt

With the knobbies mounted (Heidenau K69 front, K74 rear) it behaves verry well offraod and is much easier to handle as the Beemer.

I'm shure we will have much fun in the future .

Nice find. I ride a GS and recently got a DRZ400S for much the same reasons. Looks like some fun!
