No thanks, I'll just hike in and out.
Cool! Like the bit where he almost touches the wing coming onto the spit to land.

I think I'll ask at work if they would like to donate one for me to ride to Alaska for a road test

I was wondering if they would actually produce it. I was working at the motorcycle plant back when they were developing that stupid "Fury" chopper thing. I tried to tell some of the new model team guy's that the chopper thing was already over even then and they should be working on an adventure tourer.

I know it is hard to believe that ODNR is working on a public trail project with a meaningful amount of trails miles; and even I with inside knowledge of the project still have a slightly skeptical "I'll believe it when I see it" attitude, but this is happening!
Cool. That is a really great park in the heart of a really depressed area, I look forward to the new trails.

+1

Any possibility (I know this probably very early in the process) that single-track could be incorporated in addition to multi-use (quad width) trails?

Seems a shame to just re-create Wayne in Burr Oak, IMHO.

Dont be such a fucking puss. That was smooth compared to what those bush pilots land on when the camera man isnt already on the ground.

My laugh for the day was provided by a DID chain rep.

D.I.D Motorcycle Chain What is the part number for that D.I.D chain engraved on the sides?
Tuesday at 4:36pm
Topo Lake ‎520VM
Tuesday at 5:33pm

D.I.D Motorcycle Chain The best recommended chain for your bike is the D.I.D Super Street X-Ring 520ZVM-X which has a maximum of 1200c.c. This chain is much stronger and has a tensile strength of 8,745 pounds versus 8,050. Also, in your picture the inner side plates seem to be scratched up. Perhaps there is a misalignment. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Topo Lake Wow, my KLR has over 8050 ft pounds of torque? Wouldn't a misalignment that bad scar the sprocket teeth?
Think I can get him to admit the chain shouldn't have done that?

I had a heck of a time getting DID to warranty a VM2 chain that was puking rust after 4,000 miles...from nearly every o-ring. There are too many good chains on the market to put up with that, IMHO, I won't buy another.

Neither will I but the idea that my bike was needing a chain used on 1200 cc bikes makes me just laugh like a ticket for 205mph on the KLR.
