Its an interesting concept. I like the size of it for doing some rougher terrain. My main concern is its based on the 450x engine that BMW produced a while back. That engine was geared towards day riding and frequent maintenance. Not so desirable on a adv touring bike that needs to go at least 3k between oil changes. Perhaps they have addressed these short comings. I didn't read that far...

HOWEVER......that odd child of mine.....Ms "I don't condone your motorcycle riding"......actually now says she'll take the BRC since I offered to pay for it!!!!! Wonders do happen!!!!!!!!!!


I have to admit.....I was really mulling this over....going to RTB this year.....a lot of times I feel like the 3rd/5th wheel on the wagon.......just standing around and looking silly..................

I didn't think that you working the front counter last year was too silly. Ghost really needed the help and it was much appreciated. The rest of the time it's good to have you around when we run out of other people to pick on. So you better show up!

Yard is instrumental in the smooth running of things. Plus she's just plain cool. Somebody should tell her that I guess.

Pretty decent production by Monster but DC Shoes still has the lockdown on drift vids with Ken Block. Drift 3 has its moments and more importantly, two wheels.

Yay, my first video upload. This is a low res video of one of the "paved" bits I've been scouting for RTB. It looks like an in car video from the Nurinburgring.

Ever notice how mounting a GoPro on a bike (or rider) is
equivalent to about 5-6 lbs turbo boost?

Eh?

That's how I usually ride that road. Oftentimes 2-3 times a day. :o

So you're claiming the GoPro doesn't energize you even a little once you turn it on? OK, I'll buy that. But I've seen it work some magic in the mountains of Mexico. It should come with a cape or something.

I can see how it could do that but going much faster on that road would easily lead to a face plant on a ranch truck. There's only about 14' of pavement to work with.

You would would find pure riding pleasure in the mountains of Mexico. Based on your vid, I'd say.
