Thanks Paul!
That's one of the first mods I did to the bike. I nearly went straight in a ditch on my first outing on dirt. I came home and modded the ABS so that it never happens again.

I like the abs system but I really like that it can be permanently turned off.

Scorpions suck on dirt. I felt like i was on marbles the whole time. Had also put too much air pressure because I didn't want to take a chance to get pinched. AND, most importantly, these guys are not beginners.
Should have put knobbies on...next time!

The same guy did the work my friend Mike A.

Advtank brace and July 2 Adventure Ride

Hi Guys,

the brace works great - I was up at Yosemite area this weekend and it worked great. Will have some vids to show.

Anybody interested in the Adventure Ride by Adventure Designs in Hayward July 2?

http://www.advdesigns.net/info.html

They will be going North of Golden Gate and hitting some dirt up there.

Thanks Paul, I assumed it was different. I was under the impression, from what I was told, that the bracket was different by the passenger footpegs.

I'll get in touch with Mike A. asap. That hole you had in the tank is certainly a bit of a concern...

Dual Sport Ride in Gold Country This Wkend:200 miles, LongBarn

ooooh. Hot Springs! Thanks, Double D Looked like a nice, pretty clean soaker. Thanks for sharing. Wow. There's some good stuff here.

Here's a dual sport ride that my friend is putting on. It's designed to be a smaller crowd than the Sheetiron and even though the lodge is sold out, call up the lodge to see if you can camp on the grass or camp nearby or stay at another place nearby.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...4#post16236474
I've taken my Strom on some of this route and did fine. It's not exactly all 2 wheel drive fire roads and there are some water crossings. There will be hard splits that may have a snow challenge to work through or work around. 100 miles a day, two days. Many of you guys on this thread are way advanced riders and know the riding areas well. However, if you are new to the area or to dual sporting, then having a package dual sport ride may be a great way to get acclimated.


Enjoy your weekend.
