So you want to race your 640 adventure "the Race"

Well, ADVRIDER.COM readers you might have seen this thread a few weeks ago. "so you want to race your 640 Adventure" which then lead to INTE aka "JOHNNY WAD"

So now it is 4 days till the Terrible 250 off-raod race in Nevada, that I will attempt on my modified 2005 640 adv. well, not way out modified, it was all bolt on stuff, carbs, pipes.. tires.. stainless steel balls.. high fender, some frame bling and a full massage to every bolt, nut and screw. plus a radio set up.

well here she is, number 068 "Ironman class" ...thats means I will do the whole race solo...





I will keep this thread going after the race with the full story and photos by INTE, he will be coming to assist me, and take photos.
And if you would like to ask any questions about what I have done to the bike, I will be more then happy to get into details with each one.

Very nice looking bike!!!

SF best of lucks for the race! And hopefully Inte won't do much harm to himself this time, unless the camera decides to break his nose I know we will be seeing some great shots from inte, like last time.

Cheers to you guys!!

the tease....

At the risk of a Flug flogging, I'm posting a tease to the RIDE REPORT.

I went through my shots from the trip & narrowed the field to 110+ photos to catalogue/edit/upload ... this might take a bit. Expect an update sometime on Tuesday...

For now, meet the team.



...and a couple preview shots:











More to come!
