Several months ago I was on eBay and found the Dakar decals at Decaldude.com. I ordered some up, stuck them on my bike, took a photo and posted it.
Andrew ( AFekete) of the Adventures Workshop saw them and liked them and looked into doing a t-shirt by actually contacting the Dakar people
Andrew got permission (free no less!!!) So thats how the ADVRider/Dakar t-shirts got started.
Apparently, while I was off doing somthing for awhile (don't ask) Andrew got ahold of Glen at Decaldude.com (or visa versa) and now they are buddies and even promote each other with links to their respective websites.
Anyway, to make a short story even longer... You can get the decals in a huge assortment of colors and a couple of sizes via the link at:
http://adventurersworkshop.com/good_people.htm
or direct at:
http://www.decaldude.com/

Jesus... all that from a couple of lousy decals I think I should get some sort of finders fee...

Godspeed,

I like the 140 in the back a bunch....the 90/90 in the front is waaay better than the Sahara, but the MT21 will likely stick better under some circumstances. They came from Chaparral, rear $62, front $43 (about). And they are a little more buzzy than the Metzelers, but seem to stick to the slab pretty well....

I mounted the box a little closer to the saddle to improve weight distribution as far as the weak rearsubframe goes i will keep the load fairly light.
The Touratech box and mount are not prefitted for the LC4 so you can drill and mount anywhere on the tail of the bike further back would have been my choice without the subframe (potential) issue.you could easily put a pad on there for a backrest the mount is pretty damned solid.......box fits a fullface helmet and a bunch of other crap........

Sommer KTM order?

Sometime in the next month or two, (or sooner) but I am not in any hurry, I am looking to piggy back on someones Sommer KTM order. Last order I was on a timetable for the Alcan 5000 rally, and shipping ran me 55euros! Now I have all the time in the world, but would really like to avoid that kind of a hit on shipping.

Thanks for the tip! So if you lean back on it do you wonder if the rear subframe might bend or is it fine?

Maxxis 6006

Hi,

I've seen someone has the Maxxis 6006 on his Katoom... Can you give some feedback plz? My stock tyres are finally ready to be binned (Fuck those Sahara's )

From a view, they look great, but what about highway use? I use the KTM daily for commuting so expect some tarmac miles too. And I want something capable for the dirt, without having to buy new tyres every 4500 miles...

Thanks already :)

BTW KTiM, nice Keihin, what does it cost? I'll have an Akra on my beast soon... FINALLY.
God and I must get rid of that lame front fender...

Ah another question, what abuot handlegrips. What you use? I've seen those soft ones on the rally bikes but I think they suck once you get rain, and that's nothing uncommon here in Belgium :( )

Ty!

Tires

Hi: are U using enduro tires?? if so the front one has enough space under the front fender, have you trouble with little stones or mud tha scratch or broke or got stucked between the fender and tire??

I've added 2 inches to the Ushape brake line that connects both calipers and risen 1 inch the front fender...as seen in your picture it seems that is not necesary.
