Funny I took the same pic a couple weeks ago, biggest drainage pipes I've seen. I was traveling reverse TAT west to east and ran into these big boys on a big FS road prior to lakeview OR.

Rode 180 miles on my WR250R today

I wanted to try out the rack I built for my WRR, so I loaded it up with a cooler and a few odds and ends and took a ride. I live in Houston and it's amazing how quickly you can get away from the city and get to some really pretty back roads. I spent alot of time on dirt roads and saw some amazing "ranches". One private ranch I saw must have been several thousand acres with acres and acres of manicured lawn, a private polo field and miles and miles of beautiful fence... Incredible. I didn't have a good camera with me - but I'm not sure I could capture the feel of this place. I'll probably do that ride again and I'll take a camera with me. It was cool weather for the Houston area and a really nice day for a ride.

My rack worked well with one exception. I blocked my helmet lock! I guess I'll have to do some mods to it. Oh yeah - I got 73 MPG - and I was not easy on the throttle.

If I only road to work when the morning temp was above 50, that would mean I could only commute two months of the year (July and August).

Here is the Helena, MT Average Temp chart with Record highs, Average High, Average Low, and Record Low. Way warmer than where I grew up in Minnesota. Of course, it is so dry and the sun is so much more intense here in MT that it feels 10 - 20 degrees warmer than true ambient temperature.

What is the panel?

Is this for electrical accessories? What are the lights? Where did this come from?

Bought some grips!

Just bought these and some Pro Tapers like were recommended. Will try both this fall.
Thanks again to all the inputs.

Just got back from a terrific weekend of rocky single track.

Started with a group of six. Dropped one (KLX250S) about a mile into it. Dropped a second at the lunch stop (DRZ), so now it was down to four. A KTM 250 2T, KTM 525, KTM 530, and my WRR. The four of us finished the afternoon portion of the loop for a total of 9 hours of intense single track. It was a little warm and there was no breeze, but oh what fun!

I know that the wallet makes sense. I just thought the letters might start to fade and run together from that.

My insurance card is pretty sturdy so it holds up fine, however my registration does get faded. I get a new one every year and it really isn't my job to read it, it's the cop's job to do that. As long as he can "sort of" make out my name and some other info on it, it'll match whatever comes up on his computer, so I'm good with it getting a little messed up.

In a baggie, sandwiched between a thin piece of plexi glass and the under side of the seat. Plexi glass is hot glued to the seat pan. After several tries I hit the pan with a rasp a few times to get the hot glue to stick. I will need a screwdriver/knife to get it out. Hopefully by then the officer has died of boredom and left.

Tough Little Bike

This guy from NYC entered a local organized trail ride in the Berkshire Mountains of CT and proceeded to crash into a rock which caused him to wheelie up a tree. The bike fired right up after sitting on it's tail for about 5 minutes. Rider was uninjured. That's what you call a well balanced bike. Those Pro Moto Billet racks make great supports.
