Ok done.
And here is she: a '02 one with the comfort seat of the '03 Adventure and some colour modification. I'm planning a SM set for road.

Checking in as ordered, Sir!

Here's my favorite toy with the following added goodies:
FCR41, 03 Seat, Bar Snake, Roadbook holder w/ Touratech GPS mount(Garmin V), Jastek Powerport kit, soft grips, Pirelli Scorpion ATs, front axle pull, Emig 1 1/8" lowering kit, sidestand, KTM Competition silencer, lots of stickers, and several scratches for character.
To be installed this week:
Scotts steering Damper, Suspension upgrade, and possibly a Mayer seat soon. Then it's off to do the Jimmy Lewis class with it. Wahoo!!!

Just when I was about to hit the hay, I discovered this site. Awesome! Finally a watering hole to chat with KTM owners.



I own a 2001 Adv. Haven't had it "off road" much since I purchased it in June 2003 but I do plan to get it dirty in the future. Right now it's a HWY queen and is my main transportation to and from work.



Here are my mods...so far --do they ever stop?



1. Re-geared sprockets 40/17 (from 42/16) San Diego drivers are 80MPH +

2. AFAM rear sprocket

3. Tool case replaced the pollution canister

4. LC4 Tank Bag

5. LED brake lights from LifeBrite (I call them G.O.M.A lights),

Get Off My Ass

6. 3M 28mm headlight guards

7. JETHOT "Sterling" ceramic exhaust coating

8. FIAMM dual 130db horns (disgustingly loud)
9. Ralley Foot pegs

...more mods to follow, I'm sure I'll get some great ideas from everyone here.

It's late --I'm outta here.

Peace,

Darin

The studded tires came from www.extremeactionsports.ca in Prince George, BC (250-614-8060)
There are a bit spendy but well worth it. I made my own last year but they didn't last too well. I hope to get two seasons out of the rear and three from the front.

[QUOTE=rapiti]I understand Happy Trails has two varieties of soft pannier racks; one that mounts them off the rear fender (well back) and another version that covers the "number plates" (more forward.) It looks like you have the aft mounts, but can you clarify this?
hmmmm, i'm not sure-they're the "SU" model (which i think is short for "something unusual...) my old saddlebags pressed the side panel against the muffler, so i needed them even though i only use soft bags...

Creeper
used every single bit of it, except, thank god, the first aid kit...that set-up includes a mummy bag (15 degrees at night in death valley), water and food for three days, extra fleece jackets, firewood, and, of course, a chair. (sounds silly, i know, but it's hard to take advantage of the fire with no chair...)

it was pretty heavy,especially all the water and food, but we gave it a lot of thought, and it's hard to see how you could be in a place like death valley (no food, water, or firewood) for 3 days without this much stuff. it was only really an issue trying to get up icy slopes or really rocky slopes. hell, we made it back in one piece...

anybody have an opinion on this one: my buddy thinks freeze-dried camp meals would be lighter than canned food. i say by the time you bring the water and all, it won't make much difference. any experience with this?
