Hey Trinity, now that looks the dogs balls !!

I like that, excuse my stupidity.

Did you just take the parts off to someone that does the anodizing ?
The panto colour did you match it up to kTM parts?

Cheers

Nice looking ride Trinity, I like the Sharpie Anodized look on the calipers and skid plate, a nice little touch for sure.

Brilliant!!!!

I don't have an orange one on hand, so I'll grab the blue one and scribble on the DRZ to see how I like it.

they work great on bare metal and not so good on paint or vinyl.

Been hiding nicks and dings on black rims this way for years.

Yes sir! Back in the '90's when black Excel rims were the bomb, my black sharpie was my favorite "clean up" tool. Desert racing is tough on rims and black magic markers weren't:-)

I was going to be the first APORMC member to get one!!!

Nothing left to do but go out in the woods and commit suicide!

To much effort, guess I'll just trek to my fridge instead and get a cold one...

I tried the Karoo 3 tire (front and back), but observed some vibrations (not good at longer trips on pavement) at higher speed (above 60 km/t). Has anyone else observed the same? I changed back to the Conti tire due to this.

Baglux Easy Trail Tank Bag mount

I have one of these which fits really well. I'm no good at posting pics sorry!

http://www.baglux.co.uk/product/?cat=52&id=3595

Out of the way of you and the filler cap, the only downside is the rear straps come down over the front pointy bits of the seat, so replacing the seat takes a couple of seconds longer than it would otherwise. You can keep the buckles clear of you when seated with a bit of jiggling. Then you can mount any of Baglux's bags you want. Being short I just have a really thin one with A4 clear window on top.

If the catches broke you would be in the same boat as with many other clipped on tankbags. Parts are available but I could just tie it on as a temporary fix. Not happened so far though.

Hey, where did you get those rim stickers?
