Thanks for the replys. And yes i ended up in 3rd...and 4th. I could try convince you OC´s regarding the widescreen cam, but that would be a lie.

I was a little nervous for the first run in 3 years in the soft and needed the first time to be an succes. As confidence rise i´ll get this moving and promise to, not feed you guys with long winded boring movies.

Speed was between 60-90km/t

Reminds me of the Dakar finish line seashore where I used to go for a run in the sand dunes every week-end. A 160 miles of pristine beach with no Agenda 21 booklet wielding United Nations official to prohibit sensible use of mother nature.
I miss those beaches.

Come on, guys! don't pressure...
Yes, I know adiablolex is just kidding, but still... Bike Project in its first offroad test... the need of hearing every little thing, dying to feel every tiny vibration, noise and/or whatever that can tell something's wrong or all is going just fine... and now going out to ride the beast on gravel and sand after 3 years out of business...!
As many of you, I think I would did the same ride as Locul...

Mikael, thanks for being that authentic. Each time there's a new post to this thread, it's like we meet you at your garage for a beer and to fool around

Of course I was kidding, I have no doubt that the bike and rider will finally connect after all this time getting it perfect and it will all be worth it.
The bike is just unbelievable.
I must say Mikael, when I saw this thread, even though sceptical, I knew that you can pull it off as you stuck with the plan and made it happen.
You've definitely inspired many of us and thank you for that.

Duuude. That bike is sick as fuck. And riding the 9fitty on sand sucks. Too much weight up front, especially with that pizza cutter for a front tire.

My bikes been on the back burner for a month now. Freshened up EVERYTHING on the bike only to get rear ended by a 16yr old girl. So while my muscles re-attach themselves to my body I've been working on my mg midget with a turbo bmw swap.

Keep the videos and pics coming. It's the closet thing to riding for me and is keeping me sane.

MrSandman818:
For your healthy benefit i´ll accept the "ride more" concept. And thank you for your kind words.....though you said turbo....??? RC8R...turbo???!!?!Maybe


Everyone else. Thankyou. It has been a pleasure and still is showing this progress with build in faults and succes.

For an while ago i asked for lower temp sensor for the fans. The original kicks in at 105 celcius...that is a tad high in this type of bike. I´ve searched around and one guy(OC of course) pushed me in the direction of Suzuki sensors.

Suzuki Burgman 400 and the like fits straight on and it kicks in at 94 celcius. Damn perfect.





How it looks on this machine.



Perfect fit.












Any danes need it i can be helpful with mc nøglen.

Made an quick edit on the last weekend touring.



The test included an old abandoned sand-road. An absolute test for my lesser skills in sand and the time being away from riding this kind of big bike makes it even more challenging. With that said it was damn fun, i really enjoy the stability that these huge bikes has. I´ve totally forgotten how much it feels like skiing. The suspension got worked a tad more on this ride. It really shines and needs me getting more courage to attack.

Enjoy
