Salt Flats in Utah. One of the coolest places I have taken this bike. Salt flats are a must for adventure riders......

SLO_Jazbec, I totally agree with you about salt flats. May be it's something one must do to be able to understand it in its full magnitude.
Here's mine at the "Salar de Uyuni", Bolivia, largest and highest salt flat in the world (12.000 Km2 / 4,086 sq mi, at 3.650 msnm / 11,995 ft amsl).

When you reach the middle of it, you can note there is no Andes peaks on the horizon... that big it is the Salar...





Thanks for share...

Fantastic!!! I am planning a trip to ride that part of the world in 2014. I know, feels like a hundred years away.

yeah... looks like a century... but no matter how it looks, you have a great ride in mind and 3 loooong years to delight yourself with the idea... that's enviable

I always feel that the previous stages of a long ride are nearly as enjoyable as the ride itself. That is to get the most of it... the ride starts in my head.

We'll be waiting for another northern rider down here then...
Cheers!

Fcr-41?

I need to pick the collective brains of the LC4 crowd around here.

Anyone fit a FCR-41 on thier 640Adv? Looking for jetting advice. I have a fairly stock 2002 with low-flow head and SXC exhaust. The carb has jetting for a Duke from Sommers not sure if that will work too well with my bike. Any advice would be great.

Maje-appreche!

Salt Flats

Lake Gairdener in South Australia is the venue for Speedweek each year, where Land Speed Records are broken. It is around 50k wide and 170k long, and when in good condition as flat as a billiard table. Unlike Bonneville, it has no ruts, and it is quite smooth off-course too. Once you get around 4km off the end of the course, you are in "dinner-plate" territory, standing on a white dinner plate, covered by a blue dinner plate, with zero references to any landforms (people have died from this disorientation). You can actually see the curvature of the earth.
Here's a picture of my 640 on the salt. Cheers.

Put the 41 on my '07 640 runs much stronger.............but bike has had trouble flooding out riding fast through whoops. I've had it looked at by KTM machanics numerous times. No luck. Even looked for help here. I love the bike, but avoid the whoops at this point.
