That's all already trackable without needing the UUID.

I posted this over on the DR thread, but to take our minds off of black helicopters and because want to show off my pretty Iphone photos..., here ya go.


TIme for some stealthy lights and something I can run on the trail without concern for busting off (sort of). OK, I confess, I liked the black.

Step 1. Procure cheapy lights on fleabay.


Step 2. Hold up to fairing for look test. Oh yeah, stealthy and barely (not) legal.


Step 3. Decide on hole spot. This is critical for coolness factor.


Step 4: Drill hole and put wires through for testing. Oh yeah, sexy.


Step 5: Wire up both sides for full test. Bitchin.


Step 6: Admire.

Around here, Volvo cell phone lady wouldn't see his signal even if he were pulling one of those big programmable message CDOT trailers....

That's funny as a Volve SUV decided they wanted my lane more than I over towards Castle Pines. It's quite fun to stay in ones lane just a few feet off the front quarter panel while they merge and then see them whip it back into the merge lane.

I only put the bulbs on for minimum legality and some level of function. If I cared about full visibility, my ride would be a 1150 GS with a full set of lights and then some.

The ADVMonster LED lights are affordable and very bright.

Just snagged DR-Bee's DRZ400E...



It's gonna be a fair bit easier to pick up out of the dirt than my 990

I rode that bike a few weeks ago. Scott got it set-up and jetted by Eddie Sisneros, the DRZ guru, so it pulls hard and strong.

Was pretty happy with the performance when I rode it. The Corbin makes the bike's height fairly manageable for my 30" inseam, too. 4 gallons of fuel should help get me up to some trails so I can start gaining some real off-road experience. One of these days I might even be good enough to start riding with the big boys around here

Best of luck.

I was thinking of the DRZ I sold last night when I was working on the KTM. Mine also had the same rear rack. I had to tear the rack halfway apart, then remove all sorts of fasteners to get the tank and seat off.

The KTM: 2 bolts total to remove the tank & seat. Yes, I need to check the valves more often than on the DRZ, but it's a vastly simpler job to get to them. Not to mention the ability to change jetting without being a magician at geometry.
