Good deal! I think a friend has seen him. You'll be good as new in no time.

Can someone speak to the range we need between fuel stops? I can't remember.

CRS strikes again
I think RF computed it at 115+\- max range no diviations. That assumes gettting a couple of gallons at the campsite--which has been accounted for in the planning--to make the final days leg.

Required bike maintenance pics............



I'm starting to get the Husky ready. It has not moved out of the garage since last June after a crash

As I was trying to figure out the best way to make some luggage mounts I realized the rear subframe was cracked pretty bad.

I think it really needs some reinforcement regardless of what luggage set up I use. There is not much material back there.....

Nice Husky Ben, looks like you'll be a popular guy with that tank

I got the 525 almost done, I'm adding some GPS wiring, otherwise it's ready

So I have done two setups on the husky, a GL clone and then the big ass bag on the back





As long as I dont run out of time I really want to try the Wolfman soft pannier setup. I truely think that is the best option to get the weight down low and off the tail rack. We'll see though. I have so much to do on the Husky I may have to try and take my dads XRR I hope it still starts

Ben,

Of course my bike starts.

I had to test drive it a few times (as you know) after working on it Saturday.

The question is . . . will I let you take it! OK . . . as long as you promise not to go over the speed limit, don't pick up any hitchhikers (unless they have good looking legs of course) and that you wash, wax and fill the gas tank back up when you're finished with it.

I meant if MY bike starts. Dirt roads don't have speed limits!

I always carry my siphon hose! So Ben what exactly is your Husky year and model? My 650 is not looking so bulky and low to the ground now after looking at yours! Thanks for the encouragement. So that bike has been up Elephant Hill and Bobby's ?

Geo, I was going to load it on your bike, plenty of room

Actually I won't be carring much so I got some wolfman E12s, 2 MSR bottles (just in case we have to backtrack for any reason) and a small duffel that straps to the top of the saddlebags. Also a small enduro tankbag for cameras & stuff.

dmac, it's an '07, I figured I'd cover it with stickers so it won't get scratched up as much. I took it out for the first ride today, it runs nice, I'll get used to this bike pretty easy, the wr 6sp will eat up some miles too.
