Any luck with Hurricane or California? (I think they plow Eng/Cin).

Those photos are from yesterday

The road grater was at work on the road down by Silverton. So it was nice and smooth until the pass itself. (where we have decided that my gearing SUCKS for this right now time for a -1+2) Found myself on a bit of a ledge on one of the pass switch backs with not enough grunt, or traction to really get the bike to climb. Its these moments of shear terror thinking you are going over backwards off a 1,000 cliff that keeps motorcycling fun It was also over heating on the climb....so dual fans are also no the list.

Statements like that make me wonder if I should convert my 990 into a 100% road bike! Anybody got a little 250 they want to sell me cheap?

Look how far the sprocket is from the spokes. Talon have adapted a narrow wheel to fit the Adventure by making an overwide sprocket carrier. That cannot be right?

My Rally Jacket looks the same as DeeGees, just not as CLEAN.

I think I'd worry more about your riding .....


To be fair to my statement and the 950, my bike has the 17/42 stock gear combo and a stock set of Perelli Scorpion tires at high street pressure on it right now. Even a slight change in gearing to 16/42 or 16/44 would have made a huge difference, especially with knobbies at trail pressers.

Been down Black Bear in a Jeep! The cover photo of the 2005 "Jeep Calander" is me going up Pokipsey Gultch......there is a good reason I chose Engineer Pass for a solo trip on the KTM fully loaded

All run trails of the area......here is the edit with the Jeep cover photo!
