[quote=mdaniels]Have two of these Tool Tubes for sale. I bought them a bit ago, but can't find a suitable place to install them on my bike. Each are $5 (same as "new") and I've already cleaned the graphics off of them. I'll ship them as long as you're willing to pay the extra. ]

Anakee Front Tire 04 GS

Hey all, since totalling my GS I have gotten rid of most of my spare farkles, but still have sitting around a ~3k mile Anakee front tire. It even has it's 'dynabeads' still in it. Tire is in good shape with plenty of life left (as verified by Woody's) and was removed right before westfest to put TKC's on.

*sigh*

yes, I put brand new TKC's on my brand new retrued by Woody's wheels and then totalled the bike with less than 400 miles on them. But what sweeeet miles those were!

Buying an RT to replace the GS so I don't need the tire anymore. WTF you ask?!?! Decided that some flavor of a 400 - 450 next spring might let me see more of these beautiful CO trails than a GS. Plus I still have that Kawaski 100 to fix up, so someone come take this tire off of my hands! FREE!

PM me. In Broomfield, CO.

Cheers!

Aquilius

Dude!!! When did you wreck your GS? I didn't hear about that. Still posting, so I assume everyone's ok.

Not wanting to hijack the forum, I'll keep this short. We are fine, but 4 words.

-Devil's Punchbowl

-Rock Slide

-Idiot

Okay, that's 5, but the last one is the most important.

Now that my insurance claim is all settled I plan on posting a ride report from DMoney's and my epic adventure after WestFest. But here's a tease:


Why the Hell not?!??! We had six (count them SIX) riders tell us we'd have no problem on the trail with our bikes. Maybe we should have paid attention to the fact that none of them had tried this on a GS, but only 250 dirt bikes or ATV's....



Nothing like scraping your valve covers all the way down.



The inevitable result of a failed mating of DMoney's 1200 GS and Terra Firma. Bash plate? What bash plate? This rock didn't believe in safe sex.

Check out the ride reports mid to late next week for more.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled flea marketing.

Todd

Technically, no, I didn't total it there as we rode safely out to Carbondale (edit: and by safely I mean, OH MY GOD IS THIS EVER GOING TO END!! sort of safely , all the while pumping oil into the bike every 5 miles) ... I just destroyed my right side valve cover to the point that JB Weld wouldn't even fix it. Now personally *I* almost died, but the GS's (both) only took valve cover and/or oil filter damage going over Scofield.

Most of the cosmetic damage you see in my pics (see sig below) on my GS happened when I 'forgot' I shut off my abs on Cimarron pass rd and flew ass over end at 30mph when I locked up the front brakes. My insurance company was going to total the bike instead of paying for the valve cover, abs sensor and tank, so I said I'd buy it back (they even offered not to 'salvage' the bike in the process).

My insurance company wouldn't pay for a uhaul, but they said they'd tow it the next day for me. I agreed and left back to Broomfield with the bike at the KTM dealership in carbondale. Evidently the tow driver who showed up figured the bike was completely trashed and just threw a tow strap around it and drug it up onto his truck and left it like that for the entire ride back to their lot. When I finally got the bike back expecting only to see the same damage you see in the pics, I was incredibly pissed off to find that my entire left side of the bike was now also trashed to the point I couldn't justify trying to fix it all.

So whereas Scofield almost toasted me and definitely left it's mark on the GS, I blame human stupidity as the ultimate cause of it's demise.

But again, more later in the Ride Reports. (Sorry moderators!)

Cheers!

Todd

Garmin GPSmap 60cs - complete package with all the maps!

***SOLD***


Its all here - everything you need!



The GPSMap 60CS is packed with navigational features, but Garmin knows that a great device has to go beyond a simple color display to be the cream of the crop. With that, Garmin has upped the ante on this lightweight, rugged, waterproof unit, offering a 256-color, highly reflective display that provides easy viewing in almost any lighting condition, including bright sunlight. This transreflective TFT, 2.6-inch-diagonal screen provides excellent viewing while maximizing battery life (up to twenty hours with typical use).

Map display.

Altimeter display.

Displays trip details.

The GPSMap 60CS packs GPS navigation into a compact, waterproof device.
The GPSMap 60CS adds two premium features to the basic design of the less expensive 60C model: an electronic compass and a barometric altimeter, both crucial for highland adventures. These sensors, when combined with GPS technology, provide enhanced bearing and elevation readings. A barometric sensor with automatic pressure readings allows you to view changes in pressure for a set period of time. With the elevation computer, you can find current elevation, ascent/descent rate, minimum and maximum elevation, total ascent and descent, and average and maximum ascent and descent rate. The trip computer provides odometer, stopped time, moving average, overall average, total time, max speed, and more.
The WAAS GPS receiver has an accuracy of 10 feet in North America. With the 50 reversible routes, 10,000 track points, and 500 waypoints, you're sure to have enough tools to find your way. A fast processor allows the 60CS to provide quick auto-routing, turn-by-turn directions, and audio alerts when the unit uses optional MapSource software, which can be stored on the 56 MB of internal memory. Downloading information is quick with the USB or serial port interfaces. By using the dedicated serial port, the GPSMap 60CS can share navigation instructions with repeaters, plotters, and autopilots. The four-position rocker pad and dedicated high-use buttons make navigating through the unit's features easy, even when your fingers are cold or wet.
The GPSMap 60CS is also packed with some extra fun features. An integrated outdoor calendar provides ideal hunting and fishing times, plus moon rise/set/location information. There is a dedicated geocaching mode for those of you into the popular, GPS community treasure hunt game. And finally, there are indoor/outdoor GPS games to help you and your friends enjoy the outdoors.










Also included;
12v (cigarette lighter plug) power cord
suction cup windshield mount
2 handlebar mounts (fits most bicycles, atv's, motorcycles)
USB connector
Belt Clip carrier

Maps included are;
City Select North America 2005, 2006, 2007
City Navigator North America 2008
MetroGuide USA
WorldMaps
US Topo maps
National Parks West 24k topo maps


Unit works perfectly - I have even installed weather stripping in the battery compartment to keep the batteries from vibrating loose while on a motorcycle.


Sold as a package deal only

$300 for everything

Vstrom Stuff

I'm putting my DL1000 back to stock and I'm going to have a bunch of good stuff for sale. In the meantime, I need to swap a couple goodies for stock rather than sell them outright.

First item:
Steve Gowing custom seat. Steve is a seat builder in Ft. Collins who does beautiful work and has done several Vstrom seats. I've tried Corbin and Sargents seats on the Vstrom and this seat way better than either. I paid $290 to have this seat built on my stock pan. I'd like your stock seat (in good condition), and $150.00.


Next item:
I've got Sonic springs and Racetech Goldvalves in the forks. Trade me your forks and $100 and you've just made a huge improvement in your Vstrom suspension. I've also got a Wilbers rear shock that I'll package with the forks if you're interested.

Ride your Vstrom to Ft. Collins and we'll swap parts.

Game on! I stayed up late and finally put it back together!

2002 KX100
NEW cylinder bore, wiseco piston, etc.
FMF pipe and silencer with spark arrestor


The plastic isn't pretty and there are a bunch of stickers on it but it runs like a top and seems faster than the 98 KX100 I raced a few years ago just running it around the block.

I got it with an UGLY piston/cylinder and gave it a new top end, added a few missing bolts, bent the radiator back to almost normal, and ordered new levers that'll be here in two weeks or so. It goes through the gears great, the rear brake works fine, and the clutch feels pretty good. It could use new tires, but will do fine for a little while on the current set.


$1000
We are without a method of picture posting right now so if you want a picture, come take it yourself.
