As it currently stands - 03 Adv with powercells ohlins fork inserts and the matching rear end. But the next month revolves around; (+10 year anniversary)
09 SMT motor, 3.5 excel rear rim and oversized spokes, rottweiler intake and SSO headers/akro, new rear tanks, under seat 3lt+ oil tank, nav tower/dual led/hid headlight, oil cooler and an 1190 radiator, a little Powdercoat on the frame and sub.
Should see me done!!
Oh yeah - a new seat that has NASA technology foam. Can't wait for that one!!

Just installed my Spoke Skins from spokeskins.com. Super cheap and easy to instal. I was going to powdercoat them but this was a cheaper and easier option. Held on great for my dual sport ride yesterday and didnt budge when they got hit with my pressure washer.



And im fixing/modifying my old rally raid windscreen. My handle bar went through it last april when i was rear ended in north carolina by a car full of teenage girls. After seeing Geeks and Rades designs for their rally screens i knew I wanted something that looked like what they had since theirs were so badass. So im changeing all the angles on the lip and face of the windscreen with cardboard (I know all the professional mold guys out there are cringing right now). Then fiberglassing over it all. Once I get the shape I like Ill start gel coating then paint it. Pictures will be posted. And Ill have to hit up crispy designs again for a dakar rally decal again since he did such a great job last time.

Side note. The number plate decals that he made me held on and didnt move at all during the slide. there scratched down a little bit but thats it. Quality product for sure.

I need new tires...still not sure what to get so in the mean time I am milking the last miles from the Scorps. I also need to add some more forward light...I sure like that adjustable screen/gps mount/headlight thing I have seen a few guys do write ups about.

Using my SuperPlush revalve on a No. Baja Lost Coast expedition...

And with the sag now removed from my 265mm forks the bike sits too tall. I'm hoping a low seat gets my feet back down to ground level.

The Boxer on the floor in the corner?....

The 990 motor only has 5600 miles on it and i did a little cleaning when i got it, should give me something to do this winter.


Widebands in, all the wires routed and cleaned 7 years of crud off the pipes,a little dremel action on the bungs, and its time for my cans and a gas tank then fire this bitch up.

Got the call yesterday afternoon!! Superplush has my forks done!! Bad news is I'm leaving tomorrow for vacation for a week, but I'll be picking them up when I get home!!
Revalve + heavier springs + their own brand of magic should make for a nice ride for the Austrian princess.
