Awesome! I remember having a few laughs about that later Chris' stuff is top notch...and he is a pretty good guy too If I could actually ride well enough to race I would be all over a kit

I am happy and sad at the same time to post this.

We are taking a hiatus from selling kits while we develop our new design. Selling kits while at the same time trying to test and design improvements is not working.
We will continue to post progress here.
Cheers and wish us luck in the upcoming months!

Rally ON!

For those who have purchased kits, do not worry. RMS and RMK will continue to offer support for replacement parts and general help.

Mmmmm...

Bad ass light.
Stock Orange headlight mask (would look better in KTM Blue BTW).
Some fancy 3D printer work.

Does it have a beer bottle opener built in?

A great write up on Ned's first stage of the Tuareg Rally. Rocking a Rally Moto Kit. The light weight roadbook and fairing is working out great again!
Thanks JMo, keep up the great work!!!

Tuareg Rally Day 1 (Saturday March 9th 2013) summary - #97 Ned Suesse - Team RMS/IYSK Wines

Baja 1000 racer and Dakar 2012 finisher Ned Suesse must be one of very few riders today who genuinely enjoyed the conditions of this soft and sandy special stage. “I didn’t think it was too bad - I’m not saying it wasn’t difficult, it was certainly hard and technical... but then I like hard and technical!” he laughs “So I’d agree it was tough - I just think some riders must have a different definition of what is ‘good’ and what’s ‘bad’...”

Certainly Ned’s choice of bike - a KTM 505 XC-F Enduro bike fitted with a lightweight ‘Rally Moto’ fairing assembly and oversized gas tank - meant it was far more nimble than many of the other [larger] machines who’s riders correspondingly struggled in the dunes.

“This bike is just so much fun” he says with a huge grin. “It has a lot more power than my [450cc] Dakar bike” he explains - “I’d come into something, and knew immediately that if I’d been on the 450 I’d be stuck here... but with the 505 you can just wind it on and it simply ploughs through.”

Having completed the course in a more than respectable time, Ned is confident that he was able to navigate to each waypoint and control, despite his concern about the accuracy of the paper roadbook. “The riding was fun, and the route was excellent - but I’m not sure you could have completed today’s stage without relying [heavily] on the GPS to direct you... whereas I’m more accustomed to using a GPS to simply confirm a decision [I've] made from the roadbook” he explains.

Ned Suesse is part of the US rally team supported by Rally Management Services and If You See Kay Wines during the Tuareg Rally.

Stage result: not available at this time

Overall position: not available at this time

#97Ned Suesse - really enjoyed the 505 in the dunes:

First of the extended family of products we will be offering very soon.
These are tough and very light, ABS plastic parts, printed with my 3D printer! We will race test these next weekend and make any needed improvements. Along with some much needed aesthetics.
Price TBD at this point. They will be very affordable. We will sell with our without a Rigid LED.

The overall direction I am going with RMK..... 3 modes you can quickly changed your kit into: Rally, Enduro, Desert Race.

We will sell these mounts sooner than later in hope to fund much needed improvements to the fairing mold.

- KTM and Berg will be for sell in about a week. (I need to build some inventory) Once the site is launched, we will start taking orders.

- Honda, Kawi, Suzski, Yamaha, coming next...
Oh yeah
, I need to create a design for the other bike brands. I am looking for anyone willing to ship me one of their stock headlight surrounds. I will ship you back a free enduro mount when they are ready for production. Please send me a PM, I would like to schedule up the people who interested in the loan/trade program. I will choose 1person / bike brand / model.
