I've got to give you guys credit for loyalty. That Husaburg sound like an exercise in frustration. Good luck!

Welcome to Adv Jeff

How is the bike running? How was camping. My people said that you went undetected And I was distracted last weekend which made it very difficult to get up there.
May ride today and Sunday May also have some extra luggage on back

It's sweet now. the crank siezed. New piston, rings, crank, oil pump, clutch, clutch cable, honed the head and re-inspected everything. Thank God for ryan @ moto one... he could have taken me to the cleaners but he cut me a major brek on the labor and discounted the parts. I couldn't have got them cheaper. I tried! I saw your DR there Steve. What r u doing to it?

I am down for riding today. What time r u thinking? I can through some extra cargo on the back too. Ol' girl loves going for rides.

Looking forward to the 22nd

The lag between rides is pure torture. I am looking for a sponsor who will allow me to ride every day, I just need enough to cover my expenses, I will quit my job and ride for the team. Maybe the guys at Gold Bond could pony up a small fortune every month. My bike is already yellow, and gosh I have used enough of that stuff. If any of you guys run across some sponsors that want to invest in me riding more, please let me know. Maybe I can start a paypal account on advrider and beg for 5.00 at a time. "Will ride for food" Until then I will have to sponsor myself........or how about I can send out letters to all my friends and family to support riding for a cause................................now, I only need a cause, hmmmm, any ideas?

I know, I will be a motorcycle missionary, spreading the good news of dual sport riding and saving mens lost and pathetic lives from the duldrom of ordinary existence bringing them into the light of the Sierra mountains where God can clearly be seen!!!!

For a small tax deductable gift you can partner with me to spread the good news, I only need 100 partners to to seed 100.00 each per week to get the message out to the lost.

In return for your small gift and to say thank you for partnering with the cause, I will send you the SECRET.


Oh, and by the way I look forward to seeing you guys at the secret disclosed location for some great breakfast and strong coffee. Come early and stay late..........is that the secret.....oh know/no!!!!!

Steve,

Explain to BMW how you ride for the brand and how you really want the 800 cc parallel twin motor in the GS platform. Tell them that it's so important to you that you need to be a test rider. Explain that you love the 1200, but you find a smaller, lighter bike to be easier on the body and the machine. Show them pics of the "testing" you've done on the 1200, that ought to open their eyes(lots of pics of it on its side). You might want to add pics of mods Rob has done to his KLR and explain that this is what happens to bikes that aren't built right from the factory, shadetree machanics get ahold fo them and in the end they don't have the "finished" look the factory had in mind, but the manufacturer's stickers are still visable. Not good advertising. You don't want that for your beloved BMW.

Let them know you would do an around the world trip for them if they need you to. Or Fairbanks to Tierra del Fuego with an expense account might do it.

Thats the spirit

Thanks for the thoughtful input, with ideas like that I should have my sponsorship in no time, oh, and powerman, how about some seed to get me started?????

I have heard some rumors about the 800 twin, have you seen one?

Sorry Steve, no seed money. I'm saving up for some tires for both KTM's. Good luck with that though.


As for the 800, I've seen the 2 street bikes they built with them. The GS is just a dream so far. They have to be working on one though.
The X challenge has 53 hp and 44 ft/lb of torque
The 800 in sport trim is 85 hp and 63 ft/lb of torque
Both are liquid cooled. I think they have a heck of an opportunity here to make an outstanding bike. User friendly, not too tall, not too heavy, not too wide, with a decent amount of power and road manners to get you to the places you really want to ride. I think it could be a great all arounder with a heavy slant toward dirt.
