Additional accessories can affect handling

Met those guys on the road a couple of years ago, here in NZ. Nice people. Amazing bike - quirky doesn’t cover it!

They seemed to be doing ok in the gravel when I saw them, though they did mention that Mongolia was a challenge. But what you can’t see in the picture are the deployable outriggers!

Actually from Saturday - Met up with Creola from over in Kissimmee so he could check some dimensions on my F 650crash bars, we could ride some, I could collect a photo tag, and we could find a lunch spot.

Wound up at a well known German bakery & deli, the Yalaha Bakery and Deli. As we're leaving there is a freaking helicopter landing in the clearing adjacent to the parking areas. It looked like a family group flying in for lunch.



That's Creola heading out in the hi-viz jacket while I stop to take a pic of the copter ready to touch down.
