I knew good rallye riders weren't actually human

but

The part when he levitates himself above the bike at the end is pretty transcendent.

Can he actually fly?

Hi there,
I have to admit, that I haven't seen all the vids as my pc is a very slow one - directly from the stone-age.
So I can't answer you at the moment. I'll try to work through all this footage ...
I don't think he can fly. But real rallye-riders are a different matter than riders like you and me and Rob. Comparing the test-ride of his rallye-bike with Rob's ride (the one with the 'roos crossing the track) - well, that's a different kind of speed, I think. Sorry Rob, don' be sad! I don't think that I can even reach your speed with this big heavy bike! I have two small and light bikes at hand, a 250 cc MZ off-roader with a bit of works-specification from 1976 (not the whole program, frame and suspension date from 1972) and a Hercules (Sachs) GS 175 with 7 gears from the same year. They're much easier to handle off-road ... and to lift again after you've dropped them ...
Kind regards, Bambi

Hi Spen, all depends how much the heated grips will draw if you are running twin headlights on high beam and grips on full heat probably no.
But you may only have them turned half on and find that they are warm enough, a little tip here is put a couple of layers of heat shrink on your left handle bar to insulate it similiar to your twist grip so the temperature will be similiar on both sides.

Hi All!

This thread is legendary, it's so long-lasting.

I haven´t been here for a while - all the big changes in life that a guy can have after the end of University/school-life, are coming in groups. But the Big is still enjoying the roads of Estonia - with me behind the bars ofcourse.

Sorry, to check in only when I need something, but currently I'm looking for the next bits and pieces. Maybe someone has all of them, so I can have my problems solved with one deal.
(My bike is Sr42)

  • The part of the rear wheel, where the chain sprocket is bolted on
  • Chain guide
  • Chain protector
  • Left side plastic cover

Pls send me a PM.

Best Regards
Martin

True, true...

These forks look similar to the ones I mounted on my smurfy SR41...
I reduced travel from 300mm down to 240 linear and additionally 10mm for bedstock.

Simon, after next Tuesday I got a few spare weeks at home .
Does or has any one tried a different brand of shock other than Wilbers and are very happy with it, it needs to be adjustable on comp and rebound, does Olins make one .
Please speak up.

Thanks for replies :) This is a KYB frok from '08 YZ450F. I still not fully adapt it. Still need to make spacers for front wheel, then front brake mount bracket. And after that need to reduce fork travel.
Rear shock absorber is stock, but with harder spring (if I understand correctly - it is from later versions of DR)
Other things on photo minor, as i think :)

Currently began engine assembly

Thats a TERRIFIC shot the first photo Tony,
and running differnt colours and sponsor logo,s, is that bash plate made here or a factory one, still got the rear pegs on too.
DR in the lounge room, glad it was not in the bed , many years ago I did up a BSA D3 150 Bantam can you believe it, it was all black and chrome a bit of a show piece really and it allso lived in the lounge room .
One of my inlaws still owns the bike I will have to take a few pic,s of it as I don,t have any. cheers.

The bash plate was made by a bloke in Mt. Gambier. No idea who it was now. I've noticed that the bike has come back to me without it too....... but it's pretty basic and will be easy to replicate.
Very observant re. the rear pegs, young Rob! They were there to transport the photographer out to take some pics and video.
I'm in the process of transferring all the old video onto my computer too.
