Yup, YouTube (google) has been doing the copy-write cock block for about 2 years now.

I could see the first one, but the second one is blocked: This video contains content from UMG, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.

Ok.. where the hell is the accessory socket?? My bike came with it, but i don't know what I'm looking for it. I'm sure the dealer pointed it out to me but I've just be so into riding it that I forgot about that little tidbit..

Thanks.

The accessory socket is on the right side underneath the fake gas tank toward the seat. The opening is facing the front tire. It has a cap on it.

I think you meant the "left" side;).

Yes, I meant the left side. Sorry, I have four children talking to me at one time right now, I'm trying to get some office work done and I'm answering this question. That and I'm a moron!!!

I plug in the charger every day on that bike....you'd think left wouldn't have come out of my fingers naturally...

I think "Moron" is a bit harsh, but you look a little too young to have four children .

It did; it was just the other left.

It's a BMW socket. You can plug BMW heated gear there. Or you can buy a $10 adapter that plugs in there and converts it to a regular car power adapter. One thing to keep in mind: I wouldn't leave the adapter plugged in, when not in use. This would deprive you of the closed cover and expose the electrical system to possible water spray and what not. I suggest plugging it in WITH the equipment that you are going to power.

That little guy is in high school now and has the same sense of humor that he had when that picture was taken.

Pic of My New Sertao

Here's a pic of my Sertao. I should actually point out that it's truly my wife's bike. This is her bringing it home. She's the best accessory on the bike!
We share our bikes and this is the bike I use when some of my younger kids want to go for a ride. She needs the shorter seat. I'm picking one up from Gundy and having Sargent provide her wit a custom lowered seat. I've had Sargents on three or four of my bikes. They fit my ass well but this one is for her. I'll put up with the stock seat whenever I ride it. Since these photos she has added Altrider crash bars and master cylinder guard and Hepco & Becker panniers. The Sargent seat is next. To be followed by either the Leo Vince or the Remus and some TKCs.

Migo - you want to talk about heat? I woke up in Ouray yesterday and it was 30F, I rolled into Phoenix at 7pm tonight and it was still 100F, and i was wearing full offroad gear. I almost passed out.

But yes, its the fan that blows hot air over your right thigh. Try hoisting your right leg out - like a sail. That cools it down. Just try not to catch any branches with it ;)

And windscreens. I have the Touratech adjustable windscreen mount. It looks a lot better than that mickey mouse clip on that swamp posted, but its not as big as the barn door one by Cee Bailey.

The main problem with mine is the screws - meant to be adjustable - on occasion, adjust themselves off my bike and onto the trail somewhere. I've lost 3 of the 4 screws over time, and Tourtech, kindly, told me that "they always fall out", and sold me 4 more for only $16!


Alskee - some more TAT goodies for you. Colorado destroyed me, but it was because I kept going off route and exploring: lower engineer, black bear pass, etc. They are NOT part of the TAT. The TAT routes in CO are generally graded, and so fairly smooth. I did Ophir, and it was enjoyable - you could do it sitting down. Its got a lot of exposure though, so your heart will be beating!

Practice: hills, loose rocks and steep ravines - ie, the opposite of the pine barrens. Plus self rescue - i tipped a few times, the worst, my bike was almost upside down in snow, so i had to unpack it, and then drag it around to flatter ground, then walk it off the steep part. A crappy hour long job in all.

No idea what's in UT, I'm headed there next week.


Top Speed - dont forget i have giant Wolfman Rocky Mountain panniers bogging me down. Also, now, I have D606s, and the trends start to rip themselves apart over 65, so I'm riding like an old lady on the highway.


Rucksack - doesnt work for me, i need to be charging my stable of electronics. Temped by one of those panini makers as well :)


Sprocket teeth - I'll put new ones in in Canada, before Russia, and want to lower the ratio a bit. Not much land speed record setting in Siberia! the "offroad" recommendation is to drop one in the front, and keep the rear stock?

Checking my camera for a video of me falling over! Will try to post shortly.

Rear Ohlins, I can see that coming at some point in the future but after other farkles are completed.

Someone asked earlier about an extension for the windscreen. The first thing I added to the bike within an hour of riding off the dealership lot was a Wunderlich adjustable extension. I like how I can fine tune the airflow in subtle ways you can't with the TT version. It also channels the air around my helmet nicely so the buffeting is all gone. Off road, I flip it all the way back because I don't need it.
Throwing it out there but take a look at ricor intimidators. I have a set, not yet installed but it sounds very promising besides the whole fork conversion. Just a thought.
