I guess I thought there was more space than that on a DS. But I dont think I really have to worry about mud out here...

Those are the tires Ive been thinking of using next. Id be interested in seeing how you do the conversion. Or if you find out any other info on it...

What do you guys think??? Am I nuts?

New MM

I just got my MM home yesterday. Its been snowing here, so I had to let the roads clear some. The side streets to my house were still snow packed, but I took it slow. Now, I'll be damned if I can find any information on the seat builder you guys are using. I would use my old seat pan and the same cover. Thanks guys

Rox Risers

I am going to put on a set of 2" Rox risers. Has anyone done this on their MM? And, if I have to reroute my front break line, how is the line removed? It looks like the line is crimped at the fitting? As you can tell, I am not much of a mechanic. Thanks

Had other things to do today but it would be great to meet someday when temps get closer to 10 degrees again. In which area do you live?

Cheers!

You won't regret it. I had a r1150r for two years, the MM has got what that bike lacked minus the small fuel-tank perhaps. Oh well it makes up in all other areas.

Funny thing, I was in Heiloo today or should I say in & out. For the most part of the day in the Egmond/Bergen area. I've been there several times on the MM as well for the roads along the coast.

So hope to meet you there
