Poured some Sea Foam in the tank, went for a short last ride of the season, and dropped the oil for the winter storage oil change......what a bummer! It was a great summer/fall though. Will be installing factory adventure racks/panniers, and a Camel Tank this winter. Will also re-spring the forks, and either re-spring the rear shock, or replace it altogether. At first, I thought the suspension would be fine with my 235 lbs, and on the blacktop, it is. Rough roads, and its way too soft.

Jeff,

Where in AK are you and what is the usual riding season. I was going to try and do a trip to Inuvik next summer but my schedule may not permit it so I was thinking about doing a rotation up at Wainwright in Fairbanks (I am military). Get to travel up there and stay for a month etc... hit me up via PM and I will talk with you some more. I have many questions, also looking to maybe move to Wainwright post residency.

I live just to the north of Anchorage. What I consider a typical riding season is starting around mid April to early May, depending on how soon our subdivisions streets are ice free. Putting the bike up for the winter, can occur any time in late Sept-early Oct. This year is the latest I've ever ridden. I have an unpredictable work schedule, that also factors in when I start/stop riding. Will shoot you a PM later.

Just after 11200 kilometers, she was in need of new rear brake pads.
Well, with enduro mode the rear brake is useful out of tar even with ABS on.






Oh, and I did remove some tupperware in preparation to arrange all the wiring for electrical farkles better.

I was a few hundred miles from home when a bolt fell out of my side stand. I fixed it with the bolt and cotter from the passenger peg. Pk

well... installed the accelerator module (wow how smooth! bike gets a new youth), installed the maier rear guard (hate to see my suspension covered in crap each time). mounted the OEM aluminium support bracket to support my TT screen and mount a GPS on it (since adding the MRA spoiler it generated some buffering and moved quite a bit behind cars) and since it doesn't "fit" with the TT "cockpit" I needed to cut it "in shape" :o).

I plan on riding all winter if I can manage excluding ice/rain. I know that is not reasonable in AK but it did get down to 18' F today

Dolly builds



Built two dolly's for the beasts. I am able to put the Moto jack underneath making it into a temp lift. Also allows me to put the bikes flush against the wall.
