Cools Pics I gave up riding in really bad mud a while back, I can't afford
to replace chains etc. after every other ride anymore.
Mud is very destructive stuff, grinds bearings, brake pads and rotors,
chains not to mention how effectively it removes paint.
It's just not worth it. However, as my name implies..... if it gets in the way,
I love to go through it (I just don't go looking for it any more) .... I guess
I'm getting old

Looks like they already exist!

Wolfie, how would that tank bag work with a Clarke or IMS tank? I had never thought a tank bag could be adapted to the XRR...

from Eric's pics it looks like standing up might create the circumstances for some uncomfortable below the belt contact, especially going uphill

Any feild testing results Eric?

Hay wolfman,
I've got about the same set up, and now just waiting to get back to colorado for the summer. So my question is about the tank bag on the Acerbis 6.3gal tank and how far does it push you back? I also noticed your rear bag on there and how tight is that on there for you?

If you want more pics of that bike you can check out: http://www.mcraft.se/en/index.html
The bike was driven by a Swedish guy, "Berra" Marcusson.

A converted XR.

I converted a 2002 XR to the ultimate rally machine. Seen here in orange and silver. I put KTM stickers on it to fool people.

Behind this perfect honduh is my buddy with his stock honduh. He is on kick start number 118 and we are waiting around for him to get that big pig started so we can start riding. We all gave that thing about 25 kicks each before we told him to buy a real bike. He then got flusterd and angry and kicked the bike into submission. He says it's cold blooded.

Somebody has to ride the honduh.

Electric starts are for old guys that don't have the strength to kick start a real mans bike!
