so many beautiful pics of awsome bikes! maybe i shouldn't sell mine... if i save for another 12 months i can just buy a 525 as well. two bikes must be better than one

if i keep it (which is becoming likelier by the second) i gotta get some of those panniers and a top box.

tomorrow i am going out rain hail or shine across High Mountain Road to Pozo from San Luis Obispo. it has been pissing down rain for days here so the stream crossings should be pretty exciting. will take camera.

here's mine in the desert last week.

Scotty, Here's some pics from last years event! I PM'd you to find out what you know about the event. I work with offroad mexico as a photog. I know that offroad would like to run the event, but much depends on the authorities in Chihuahua, not for permission, but with regard to politics, as at that time the local government had money to spend in the tourism dept. SO, I don't know what the score is this year, but I have e-mailed Juan to find out the latest scoop.

suerte, ciao.

This is me on the last stage, the GPS had broken, I was dehydrated and stopped in this village with about 60kms to go before hitting the tarmac before antoher 30k's to Chihuahua City. I had to find my way in the dark through a maze of tracks and arrived when everyone was sitting down to supper and the prize ceremony! It was just impossible to jump ahead of these guys, even by taking 'shortcuts' by road, on many ocassions I would get to the next place to find that the leaders had allready been through! The big difference with this event as to an event like the Baja 1000, is that the riders have to navigate.... there are no course markers, which makes things ultra-complicado for the photography. This bike belonged to Erik Gallardo and KTM Mexico, which was kindly lent to me to shoot the event. Great fun, but next time i'll need a helicopter please......

Posted For Boofhead

Bike Details; 05 model, Hepco Becker crash bars, MSC steering Damper, Staintune pipe and custom UHF radio mount, Helmet speaker/ear phone
With the High gaurd set up I used RM250 fork protectors, (I asume Husky fork protectors may fit unmodified)
I used a single hole KTM brake guide for right hand side cable, I used a second std length brake line run from the brake lever ( run over to the left side steel guide ring then over headlight bracket& down through the single hole cable guide then to fork protector where it is clamped in to position. Havent had any problems even under full compression.
The brakes (twin Discs) are overkill in the dirt but great for chasing down some sports bikes on tight country roads (brakesliding the rear sideways ito corners scares them)
The bikes currently being regeared to 16-45, with a 15 tooth front to fit as needed, fitting michelin Baja tyres ( off road only) & rejetted to run the Staintune Unbaffled.





Thanks for sharin Boofhead, nice work on the radio mount.

Small World, as they say

As you can probably figure out by my name[flyshop] I had the Fly Fishing Shop in Sheridan. The log building on the left coming from Laurin.

When did you live there ??? Did you ever stop at the shop ?? I had the store from 1991 till this spring. Sold it in march and I'm living in Dillon now.

Like I said small world, I'm sure we know a lot of the same people.

Later
