With an iron man in the family should be simple to make this change which greatly improves comfort! Pirelli sport demon tires lasted on average 20 000 kilometers. In good highways ran 500 kilometers before refueling. Your trip will be fantastic and I'm watching! Have great miles! Sorry for the bad English, google is doing its best!
Hello hugobci. Great, thank you. You know, it's funny, I have to go to my nephew to put two footrests !!! So, I would appreciate to see a photo of what you did on your own ! He plans to use the two existing holes, but it's always good to see what others did !
Your english is very good for me.

As Hugo mentioned, I also have had a Yamaha YBR 250 (here in Brazil the name for this bike is Fazer 250). Such a good bike! It wont be a problem for you in this adventure for sure!

I'll be watching this thread!

Thanks for posting it!
Thank you very much !

Your Inglês is very good for me . : clap [ / QUOTE]

Hello ! Unfortunately I have not found pictures of the pieces I made for my YS 250 . However , I found these images on a Brazilian forum of a guy who bought a ready company that manufactured the accessory here in Brazil for a while ( http://www.fazeronline.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t = 16649).








I think the number 19 is a screw item that already exists in the framework of the bike , and is replaced by a longer to install the part .


I hope the pictures help . And maybe a trip through South America to commemorate 61 years old ! : freaky : freaky

HI, member willing to help out if Im home, not sure what dates you plan to pass Skellefteå, Sweden if you stick to the route in your first post.

Let me know if you would like an email and phone number if you have a list of people to contact if needed but lets take that over PMs if so.

Cheers and looks like a great adventure!

Perfect link, thanks a lot for your previous pictures.
But, it's all too complicated.
On Serparti, there are already two holes at that place, that my nephew noticed. And he decided some weeks ago to use them for that purpose. But it's the right place where I wanted to have it !
Nevertheless, I'll send pictures soon (I hope, he is very very busy....)
Have a nive day.

Hi Johan alias DirtyADV
Thank's a lot for your offer, very kind.
I plan to pass thru Skellefteå on the 29th of may, with a night stop in the surroundings of Lulea.
OK to note your email, I could send you one, even just to meet us or drive some km together. Perhaps could you show me some nice second road.
You can email me here :


If you know about a small cheap camping around Lulea, it would be nice.
Have a nice day.

PS
I've no phone !

Do not install the footrests directly into the holes of the frame as did fellow of NC700X in other topic. In the event of an impact this can damage the frame. Maybe make an aluminum plate as a small rectangle with four holes taking two screws on the frame and two others to the footrests might be better. It´s complicated but safer.

Hi everybody,
So, I'm on the road.

Departue on the 1srt of April, from atlantic coast.


Traversée de Paris....



In Bouillon, in Belgium


Bruxelles, so nice !


Thru the channel my birthday 60 years.... with a so nice weather



Thru London...



Ah, England, so beautiful, I love !
The narrow roads, the fog, the mysteries in the lands....













Oh, the breathtaking Scotland !

















The scottish cows, So wonderful.



The landscapes.... so nice, that it brings to tears !



Already at the top.... The beaches, as in the tropic !



And saturday, I had so much wind, three times fast on the ground !
I had to find a safe place as quick as possible !



What I founded in Durness, where I stayed also sunday.


That's the beginning, guys !
I made hundreds of nice photos, but I've no time to put it here.

I'll come from time to time, to give you news.

Here the route already rided !






And... this evening, I looked for the first time to my back tire, and...
Horror, the tire is almost total destroyed...
Then of course, I need to change it, imperious and urgent.
I'm in Fort William.
I guess the best place would be Glasgow, because I drive southly.
The tires :
The best one would be the MICHELIN PILOT ACTIV
130/70-17M/C(62S)

Is there somebody who knows where I can find it ?
Other possibility is a Bridgestone Battlax BT 45.
Is it known in England ?

Thanks a lot for your answers, guys, I need you !

Your pictures from Scotland are the only ones I've seem with blue skies!
