just of the batt lil 1.6 amp hr .at 12.96 vlts so not full charged .... but they either on or off when the volts drop to about 12.5 the led's wont run .as i am running the headlight at the same time on highbeam as it's switched via the highbeam switch

changed out my very first motorcross rear tire today .... took me a very very embarrassing 2 hrs ....and more sweat that i though was possible for a human to carry

i shit you not i had to do the tire on off the rim 4 times b4 i got it right .... but i didnt pinch the tube

i did it totally wrong the first 3 times ... then went and watched a youtube vid and got it on the 4th attempt

it was a sight to behold

hmmm flea market

I am thinking about listing my XR650R on the flea market. I have noticed that great bikes they no longer make are listed for crazy prices.. my XR is set up well and has lots of bling.. looking at other rare bikes, mine should be worth about $12K

Looking forward to dusting the cobwebs off the XR this weekend for the QLD/Sunny Coast Adv Xmas break up ride!!

Joe

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

dunno, I would love another KTM950SE.. but same deal, dudes think they are still worth new RRP when they have 30ks on the clock and battle scars... .. I reckon the Husky 630 would be alright, but I am struggling with the Husky part of that situation....
