Mine and Spencergt66's bikes prepped and leaving Shasta. Alleycatdad graciously supplying pre-ran route to the Rally on his GPS. What a class guy.

Have fun. Wanted to go this year but couldn't swing that much more time from work again this year. What rack is that and what is your hitch tongue weight rated for? How long was the haul down in the cage before pulling her off the back? Cheers!

That looks like a nice bracket.
Are you really that comfy with having possible bombs sitting in a hot environment so close to your Boyz?

My Boyz would never forgive me.

Why would you prefer Mitas over Scout?

Like this tire very much, from road to off road, it makes the ADV handle very well.



But i was a little agressive on off road use, and it shows



But no problem, still is a very good choice.
I had previously a Heidenau K60 Scout and for me the MITAS is much better
Hi,
right now I am thinking about switching to rear either Scout or Mitas 07.
The Mitas solution is cheaper (where I am at least), but not sure about comparison of the tires on/off road.

Can you describe why would you choose mitas over Scout? (as I read most of the posts here and it looks like Scouts do lead a bit(.

many thanks

Good one

I actually just tested to place the tire spoons on the oil tank bracket because im thinking of fiddeling with some carbon fiber bracket/box for the tools in that area during the winter..

They are now back and secure under the saddle.
The co2 bottles is just strapped for added friction, they will come out anyway.

Is there someone who has made som nice setup with the rear underseat compartment, and can someone tell me what the half round "bottle" molding and the rubber strap under the rear fender is intended for? That one behind the crossbrace for the saddle lock.
Pictures please
