Thanks Johlt.
I'll do some looking.

That's the Supermoto screen, custom mounted.

First valve check at 9300 miles

Yeah I take pretty good care of my bike but have totally neglected checking the valves since the bike has been running great. Anyway at 9,300 miles both intakes were out of spec tight at .055mm. Both exhausts were at .08mm.
Normal range is .07-.13mm. Just a FYI.

Has anybody got the RR Billet bar risers with the 10mm packer mounted as I think even that set up might not be too low, and then again the 25mm packer might be too much for the t-cable? It doesn't specify the actual height of the Billet Bar Risers.
hi,with the 25mm packer it measures 65mm from yoke to UNDERSIDE of handle bar,i just rotated the throttle body quarter of the way round,been running this setup for two years now with no problem,6'4 by the way

I received this outfit for Christmas...






I really like it and think the predominatly white color scheme will help with the heat here in Texas, but the more I look at it the more two things come to mind...

#1 Is it true people and their pets start to look a like after awhile?

#2 Does this outfit make my butt look like my fat fish?




What do y'all think?

Also for Seth... hmmm it looks like its supposed to be one word--I learned something.

Hamlet:
Madam, how like you this play?

Queen:
The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Hamlet Act 3, scene 2, 222230 --Wm. Shakespeare

Happy New Year to all of ya!

2. methinks

Archaic Verb. A surviving old-English dative construction of "it seems to me" where "me" is the indirect object. Sadly, abused by people who make special trips to Pinkberry.

Happy New Year

To all Adventure Riders, happy new year! A tequila shot for you all. May you find less travelled roads and single track to boost.

I just picked up a used 2010 690R and I have to say you guys rock and I hope to put my 2c as well.

Cheers, salud.
JC

Now you made me have to go and look up what the heck a Pinkberry is.

Woman: "What sort of berry is that?"
Man: "Tis a blueberry."
Woman: "But it is red."
Man: "Ah tis red because it is green."

Tripmaster switch.
Is there one available for the 690? I found one for every other model on a search but can't find the 690 listed.

I'm going to mount up a Garmin Montana. Would a touchscreen GPS operate alright with a roll chart? I'm trying to eliminate the need for a computer and all of the clutter and wiring.
