Thumbs down Mine suck.

The 84Ducati S2 sucks because its kick start only, looks like a volvo & its frame is flexi,
The 96Ducati SL900 sucks because its about as big as a 250 and I don't really fit,
The 97KTM LC4 sucks because I sold all the rego gear on ebay and I have to trailer it everywhere,
The ST4s sucks because they stopped making them and it needs an 1198 motor.
Attached is a pic of the Ducati996 ST.



But they're mine so I don't give a shit.

Cheers Rich

Now that doesn't suck at all, nice work mate.

Did you go with the AWD setup for climbing sand dunes or is there some nasty trails inland from Gero?

PS, have you done any riding around Carnarvon?

G'day LC8TY, only new to Geraldton so I don't know many inland tracks but the 300 Christini should be great in the dunes. The photo is current, the Christini kit arrived last week, so between hours in the shed, night shift and trying to sleep I hope to get it finished and go for a ride on Wednesday.

Cheers Rich

This is my Red bike. I ride it the rest of the time.... if you know what I mean.

I'm a little color blind too; it is nice to have a couple of green scoots around.

My 07 990 Adv has a couple stable mates


An 06 KTM 640 Adv


And an 02 KTM 400/453 EXC (plated)


Can't say they suck, wish I had more time to ride them, I guess that sucks.

So, which suspension shop did the best job?

I'm no suspension expert but I have ridden a poorly suspended KLR. I did work real hard to improve that KLR suspension but these bikes are all so much better. I was lucky to find bikes that had great suspension upgrades.

The 640 came with the SPS suspension and has worked great. Its had the most use off road; Death Valley and the Pony Express Trail across NV.

The 990 came with Precision Concepts suspension and its worked great the last couple thousand miles of mostly road.

Both PO's of the 640 and 990 had set the suspension up close enough to my weight. If I had to have work done on these I'd go to SPS, it is so close and James does excellent work.

The 400 came with Trail Tricks but set up for a much lighter rider. I stopped by Javier's shop on my way home from buying the bike and had it tuned for my weight. I was the only one at the shop that morning and Javier's tech did a excellent job. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to ride the 400 on trails yet. Thats the part that sucks.
