Eek Sucks!

Being prior Army 101st Airborne... I'm thinking helicopter and sling loading that one.
Stuck a YZ250 in a plowed field like that once.

Out for a 214 mile day ride in the foothills of the Cascade Mts. This shot is about 50 miles SSE of Molalla, OR looking SE.

I built this and you lift all the gear off and put back on at once.

brilliant! Did you build any retention straps into it?

Its the stock graphics cut to size, just take your time with a ruler and a sharp razer and you are set. I have put that bike down too many times and the stock graphics can be reset with a glue gun and then a heat gun with a good rub down... good as new.

ADVTuga, sweet stuff. Pretty gnarly right at the end, no room for error.

Looks like some good riding in Portugal as well.

Money... I never seem to have enought to buy all the toys. I bought a system to keep the bags off that muffler and it never should never have melted, it did. Had to wrap everything in 1500 degree tape and then in asbestos tape.

The heat produced is amazing, you don't need a stove to cook, it will boil water, cauterize wounds, meld broken plastic or you can use it to beat wild animals to death!

Will be buying a FMF exhaust once the snow melts. Also need lighting as the stock stuff is worse than using a paper cup and a lighter.

I love the 690 much more than my 525 but it takes thousands to make it worthy of adventure touring...
