A sad end to the legend. I wish I needed some part of it.

I'm pretty sure that's Dave's spare bike, not the one he did the trip on.

Yes, this is my spare bike. I'm still riding the trip bike. It is my only mode of transportation. I will be making a better post in the next few days.

My wife got me a set of hand warmers like the ones in your picture and they are great, but if you put on some heated grips they are awesome!

What kind of windscreen is that?

You must be a rider and not a polisher with 45,000 miles Lots of good riding in Southernish Indiana. I'm in Louisville. Check out the Indiana ride thread in Central for some fun.

electrical power scavenging

I replaced the bulbs in the speedometer unit with some led bulbs to save a few watts.

Here are the bulbs I bought:
(1) WLED-B6 - Blue
(2) WLED-A6 - Amber
(1) WLED-G6 - Green
http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...%2FWLED-x6.htm

The blue and green are super bright. The amber is brighter than the stock bulbs. These have a narrow beam pattern, which is perfect for shooting the light straight up through the indicator lenses.

I think the green will be great because it will be really obvious when I'm in neutral, but I felt the blue would be too bright for night riding with the high beam on. I forgot to buy a white one for the speedometer itself, so I decided to put the blue one behind the speedo and it looks like that will be perfect. I'm planning to disconnect the side stand switch, so that freed up the amber to be used in the high beam indicator. Amber led + blue lens = dim orange. I figured that would be perfect because I've never been a fan of bright blue high beam indicators at night.

Each of these bulbs is spec'd at about 1/3 watt, and the OEM bulbs are ~3.4w... gives me a little extra breathing room for big headlights.

Hopefully this helps someone who's looking to do something similar.

Does anyone know what is going on with the cylinder on the TwistedThrottle XR650L build for the Africa record attempt? Pause the video where there is a shot of the right side and a partial header build.

Is this what you are talking about:


Don't know what's up with that.
But they seem to know what they are doing!
