Hiya David! Long time... Thanks for asking. Shot with a Nikon D2X with 70-200 lens, but the real magic came from post-processing with Capture NX 2 software from Nikon and Nik Software's "Color Efex Pro 3.0" filters - Vignette Blur, Darken/Lighten Center... Amazing stuff. www.niksoftware.com (shameless plug!).

Cheers, KLR

Hey... thanks skamikazee! If there are any catalog owners out there, contact me!

The reality is: More riding = more fotos. Now... if I could just get to that "more riding" part!

It takes a lot of punishment and works really well - http://www.liquidcontainment.com.au/fuel_bladders.html
able to share with the folks here on how much the fuel bladder cost you(12Litre bag)?

looks like the solution to getting a long fuel range instead of spending 2k on the touratech fuel tank...

thanks dude! i think it will cost me more to get it shipped to singapore!

My ride report 'Goldfields' has some muddy stuff on the 1200 - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=444380. The front TKC still outlasts the rear Heidenau as the 800 is very light on the front tyre. I prefer the more agressive tread on the front wheel (the front Heidenau is quite tame compared to the rear). Some photos and a short comment on the Heidenau's (distances, performance etc) at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=497221&page=6
Good to know that combo works. I am going to need a new rear much sooner than the front TKC and will probably get the K60 for the back now instead. I wasn't sure about going that route, I've always kept to matched tires in the past, but wasn't thrilled with the idea of getting the quick wearing rear TKC again. I went with the TKCs to replace the original Anakees since I wasn't able to find a supplier to get the K60s quick enough for my summer trip. Still need to pin down a supplier that ships to or is in Canada.
