nice left for the longboard.. I actually during the winter on friday with the school kids snow board and ski at californias oldest ski area in Yosemite, Badger Pass.. so I have now filled the adrenline junkie hole in my arm. Hope you have one of the newer suits offered in that weather and a hot shower nearby..

funny you should ask-I just bought a new Patagonia R4 suit which is toasty! And yes there is a hot shower not far away

Some of the sections we rode today on mtn bikes filled my adrenaline habit

If you are thinking on the side, remember that even if there is currently room, the rear subframe flexes and bends too easily to rely on the relationship between the rear wheel and anything close to either side of it. The Tool Tube idea was shot down not because the buggah broke free but because someone's rear wheel ground through and released the tools...
I was thinking there's plenty of space on the inside of my RH-side pannier frame for the tool box. Will see how it goes

Actually it wasn't bad, the air temp was close to 0ºC and the water about the same. There were colder earlier in the winter for sure.

Hey Tappet, I'm guessing you don't see much of that down your way

There is plenty of room under the right side cover for a $4 tool tube.

You are not wrong pal, the only ice I see is at the bottom of my whiskey glass, before the sun f***'s it up.

I must admit I've surfed your other coast in BC and although cold I was thankful for the lack of sharks

Careful folks, the Tool Tube (TM) is an old trademark...

Tool Box Idea for the KTM LC4

Of course if you been hanging around here too long you'd know about this shit: LOST: LC4 toolbox. Note rapiti's recommendation. So after not enough thought I believed I had all the bases covered with the subframe tabs fix... but NOTE the last post in the first link (toolbox idea)... with a link to:

Bad experience w/ welding rod tool kit, 640 ADV

You've been warned.

Has anybody converted their bike to E-spec and sold off all their Adventure parts? I am thinking about going with mostly custom stuff so I figured I could sell it as an "Adv conversion package"....

Side note: a little carb cleaner or goof-off and a paper towel and you can get all that yellow stuff off. Mo bettah.

My 2007 640 Adventure

I use this bike to exsplore the local FS roads and timberlands it has served the DS purpose without complaint. little over 6K on it now. I used it to prerun the Baja 1000 last year. It has a few scratches from the PNW single track. Most comman thing to hear on adventure with this bike? Should we try that we're not on our 450's

Modified the stock exausht
Still looking for the best knobby
Race tek rear shock custom vauling
Highfender kit
lower gearing

Lakewood WA, Are your willing to point your thumper at anything once the pavment ends. Willing particapants welcome

Both the bike and operator hate freeways and yellow gates.

Bought it yesterday It's Completely stock, except airfilter.





Like I've posted in another thread:

I've just bought a 2001 lc4 adv. Been told from two sources that I can't have both side- and centerstand on it (currently a centerstand on it). Do anyone know of a sidestand that works for my '01, which also allows the use of the original centerstand?

Thanks!
