Love This Bike

Ok, I know the composition of these photos sucks other than the subject- especially following the beauties above. But I just came back from a little, very little, ride in a small area along a creek near home and I can't wipe the smile off my face. I got the bike back in February, heck maybe January, and took it apart and started upgrading per the forum advice. Got tired of that with the Rally Raid tanks yet to put on and reassembled it last weekend. The little dirt jaunt was great. Sliding, wheelies, incredible throttle response. I had ridden it to work last wek and was blown away by how fast the bike is on the road. Anyway, here are a few photos of my 2009 with 2600 miles. You can easily spot the various goodies the wife does not know about. I am looking forward to some adventure/camping rides soon.

Yup, the Lynx from Britannia Composites. Had both lights done in HID. Got the plug 'n play outlets with it, mounted the heated grips switch and volt meter too on the dash along with the Montana.

Hey Christian,

Where did you get the sticker for the Safari tank?
I want to dress my orange one up a bit, but don't really want to pay the $300 for the full set from RR.

Does it adhere well?

I don't know. It come on the tank when I bought it new
I can see that they were manually cut.
One side sticks great. The other one kind of come undone once a while

But I like how it breaks of the black some so I leave them on
Maybe came from a 950 or something. I don't know

690 Wide Ratio??

Does anyone know the part numbers or where to order the 4th, 5th, 6th wide ratio transmission gears for the Ralley 690??? They are wider than the american normal ratios. If you do, please chime in!!!

Yes Scorp's. I've got these on - great on tarmac but limited off road. They're lasting quite well too with near 6000 miles on and plenty of life left.

The bike came with these and the original set of MT21's in good shape. The A/T's are great road tires. They are tube tires. I got a Motoz Tractionator rear and I'm looking forward to having a reason to put it on. It is an aggressive looking thing.

Finally got a solid ride in today on my new to me '11 R. Been a bit of a work in progress to get it to where I want it, even though it came to me very well appointed. So far I've removed Kouba lowering link (which is for sale in Flea market...), added proper DOT knobbies (Scorpion Rally fr, XCMH rear), oil change, UNI air filter, RR upper tank bolts.

Here's a pic from the Uinta's today... All I can say is DAMN! this bike is everything I hoped and then some
