I saw Scott Summer doing the exact same thing with his XR's.
Pretty cool.

I thought all KTM owners had to be able to do that to get
them off the trail.

WOW. That is one huge dog.... I think I would rather move my bike out of the trail than that...

On another note, if any of you all want to ride tomorrow or Sun I am looking to explore the areas west of the city. Don't know much about it as I haven't been here that long.

Also. I am driving back to the pac NW for the holidays leaving somewheres round the 17th and coming back round the 6th ifn any of yall want anything delivered or picked up to points inbetween. Driving and F250 so plenty of room in the bed. Compensation (refreshing beverages or other) is appreciated but in no way expected.

That would cost more than a KTM for her to agree to go out with Ryman.


Maybe a little more realistic and in the KLR price range...

Instead of buying a mini-truck or UTV, I decided to get something that could be street legal. I just picked up an a 1988 Samuri with 87,000 miles for $1300 pesos. Lift kit, bigger tires, and some Tatou tracks for winter travel.


Getting these tracks.

Okay, I used some styrofoam wafered between posterboard to make this thing-a-ma-bob. Now I want to turn it into a smooth male plug from which I can make fiberglass or other composites.

Any ideas on what I can spray or paint over the top of this so the finished product maintains the general shape, yet allows me to sand and buff it to its final product?

bONDO?


I have had pretty good luck using ABS pipe cement (you let the thinner evaporate out to thicken) for a few projects that required molding, but I have never taken on something as big as your rally fairing.

Melt plastic army guys all over it.

Cast material.

Insulation foam.

Drywall mud.

Durhams rock hard.

Last years Christmas fruit cake.

Spray it with water and freeze it.
