Hey Geek, nice to see your pics again!
Have you been in contact with Scot? Is there any chance of getting that screen or he gave up?
Cheers!

Geek, if you and Duke ever got together the combined suckage would create a blackhole severe enough to pull the entire earth, solar system and much of this arm of the Milky Way into it before riding off across some awesome extra-terrestrial landscape.



P.S. Great shots!

Do you mount the Rotopax using just the straps or do you also have a Rotopax mount fitted to the luggage racks ? I guess those are 1gal cans. If u mounted them using just the straps, how did it hold up on corrugated roads and rocky sections ? any movement ? did it need frequent re-positioning / tightening ?

I'm planning to use 2x2gal Rotopax as aux fuel cans on mine.

cheers

I've seen a number of pictures of your bike on different forums (Facebook?)Still to my mind the best looking Adventure out there. She looks nasty. Two thumbs way up.

I think you are looking for these - http://www.highwaydirtbikes.com/HDB_Shop/

You can find lots of reviews of them on this site. I see lots of people with them, mirrors fold in for offroad, people seem to like them.
