But, to be fair... Radioman didn't really camp at all. He was in hotels and hostels and I didn't see any dormitory action in his report. And he was not out to do it as cheaply as possible, either. ...

Why?

I'm unsure why you're modifying the belt tensioner. Was it not adequately engineered by the professionals who designed the motorcycle? I don't see how a modification will enhance belt life. I have...

Arivaca, AZ

Took an interesting ride today. A couple of friends and I left out of Tucson in the morning and headed to Kitts Peak Observatory west of Tucson. Boring ride over, but the 12 miles up the hill were...

Route:

I know you're on a dual sport, but coming out of Taos, US 64 from Tres Piedras to Tierra Amarilla is a beautiful ride. (Better on a sport bike.) From there, I'd go Chama-Dulce-Aztec-Shiprock and...

Interesting

Forrestal would have been interesting, too. After the fire and explosions in 1967, it would be educational to see the ship, how extensive the damage was, what was refit, etc.

Problem Solved!

Well, I solved that problem by keeping my 2003 XB9R when I got my 2009 XB12XT. When I'm bee-bopping around town or on day rides, I take the nine and it is amazing. It's got the factory race kit and...

I sort of think it's the small 17" front wheel. Those KTMs you're riding with have considerably larger front wheels. Even going up one inch to an 18" like on some beemers is a huge improvement.
