Don't forget the sidestand and centerstand. They need to change with the suspension change.

Hey guys. I'm taking some low/med experience guys on a couple of day loop early in June. I was thinking about starting in Fillmore, hitting part of the Piute and then heading east maybe spending the night near Torrey and then looping back west and north on day 2. Has anyone put a loop like that together? Any suggestions? These guys will be on dirt bikes, so the less slab runs the better.

Knolls Day

With the weather sunny & the temperature up it seemed like a good day ti visit Knolls with the 500 EXC for some testing. Been spending way too much time working Not many people, lots of sand, rocks, blue sky, fresh air. Just wish it was closer.

I think I can see Wendover from here...



This new headlight system that I am developing with John at Advmonster (he has fantastic LED lights) has been occupying much of my time lately. Lousy weather doesn't help..



Knolls has a nice variety of terrain but not much vegetation...



Finally got the GPS mounted...



The sand provided a fun ride & a good test for the new big foot on the kickstand...



Also, finally installed the new 13 L tank. KTM & Acerbis did a good job...



All worked well. This is one fun bike! Not more than the 990 but certainly equal.

Great day out at Elberta on the trials bikes. It was crazy to be riding in short sleeves. Here is Jack showing how its done.



And I have to throw this one in from the Rhino Rally. I love it down there.

It was a nice day. I spent it finishing up the job you started.

LEDs from Advmonster....http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/hst...StoreFront.bok

The most lumens for the size & watts that I have found! This headlight / fairing will be available with Model 30, 44 or 60 LEDs. The 60 lites put out 3200 lumens each at only 28 watts per. A dimmer will be on the low beam to make it usable on the road.

Commander51 stretched the suspenders on his "new" 950 so much that I needed to add 2.5 inches to both the center & side as well as adding a 3 in dia "bigfoot" to the side!

Fellow Utard

Hi all,
I was out all day today as well...awesome day for riding. I live in Kaysville area and went to Park City/Deer Valley area and checked the status of Guardsmans Pass:~) not open yet (obviously) but thought I'd check....
Always up for a short notice ride if anyone needs a riding partner. My main ride is a GS1200 but I dabble in dirt and track..

So how does that translate to say a standard 100w bulb?

Dumb it down for me.

Missed the invite. I cant ride those things anyway. Their top end is too flat.
