Haven't gotten out to the desert for a couple of weeks, but from last time,



I'll have to get a proper camping shot soon.

My 950A chatting with my pal's SE under a tree after riding up to El Triunfo, BCS.

The SE was explaining why it was so fast in the dirt, but couldn't understand why the old black A-model would blow by +20 on the long straight runs. Fun place to ride on two great bikes.

Use a washer to take up slack so the stock tensioner has less free travel.


.......... sorry Pyn, hopefully a mod will pop these replies into a new thread.

Went for a ride as it was a nice day until the way home, all hell broke loss. The wind was unreal, plus I could test out my new to me 19/17 wheels.
