the bike has been fantastic on dirt and gravel surfaces, handling is outstanding.
paved roads are just as fun, cornering is precise even with the knob-like tire tread.
sustained highway speeds to 65 mph are tolerable and necessary to get to where the fun is.
rear tire lasted 3800 miles (mostly paved), front tire still has useful tread.

still hoping to make a trip to Prudue Bay, AK as soon as I can get away from the rest of my life for a month or so.

Hope it is half as good as they say it is.

The tear-down pictures date from Sept to Dec 09.
I'm actually in the reassembly stage right now.

More to come

It is good to 450 degrees F. Average MC exhaust tempo is 600+ degrees F.

Actually, the manufacturer claims temps to 1200 F

but it did not hold up as well as expected.
I'll be recoating the pipes this year with something else.

I am around

Just getting over being sick. Need to get into shape to ride. Hope to ride soon. I like to ride either GP east of Sunset or Tillamook Forest. Let me know.

Can you explain how the bike rests on the center stand? I mean, what stops the centerstand from folding forward? Are the side frame tubes resting on the center stand's cross tube?

I've been working on a similar design, but my it would put the bike's weight on lower frame tubes, and it looks like they're welded in that area. Makes me a bit nervous.

That is correct, cross tube rest against lower frame tubes.
No problems to this day.
BTY am the in process of re-painting the frame as the silver paint failed big time.
Also converting to fuel injection using MicroSquirt controller, ignition controll included.
No more faulty Honda modules.
Will post progress photos soon.

WOW that bike was really clean.

Good to know it hasn't caused any problems, thanks.

If I recall correctly, it was POR15, brushed on. For what it's worth, I sprayed my frame recently with Kustom Shop white epoxy primer, then Rustoleum satin black with Valspar hardener (isocyanates, nasty stuff, but supposed to make it UV and solvent resistant). I've found that the Rustoleum chips really easily, and I wish I'd just shot a cheap single-stage 2k paint instead. The epoxy primer, on the other hand, seems extremely rugged and hasn't come off in any of the chip locations.

This is the first I've heard of the MicroSquirt, sounds very interesting!
