I'll just throw a time frame of August 12-16 out there. Colorado riding, dirt/gravel roads as well as paved alternatives. Hub out of my place or ride and camp and repeat. Any inputs and interests?

Jim and Carlos,

Did you guys see the Acerbis rallye tank/seat combo for sale in the flea market?

Seem like I've been very off-topic of late, apologies.
I just looked through the "parts" section of the flea market and did not find that - do you happen to know where it is? I'm curious about it ...

Of course I'm interested, though I'm not sure if you'll let me hang out with you again Jim .....



Seriously .....I'm in the process of planning out my events for this upcoming year - and (I'm not sure just yet) the above time frame may be booked with a Whistler B.C. / Vancouver Island DS Ride.

Let me try and shore up my "regional" stuff in the next couple of days and I'll get back to this topic.

Just like the first

All bikes are welcome The first Summit had a modified Goldwing that Rick was going to ride off road before the KLR test ride came his way.

I would be willing to do the camp ride repeat formula.

just need to talk to the wild bunch to see if they are up for it.

Funny thing is my brothers were just talking about this subject 3 hours ago.

Lastly, I now have a poison ivy kit, so if I'm foolishly camp in the stuff again
I can stop the suffering sooner.

Yes indeed !!

Great bikes. Air cooled 750 twin, shaft drive, incredibly stong frame, great suspension (for their time).

This was back when Honda was really trying to win Paris/Dakar and back when they were building great machines simply because they COULD. Not the bleached-by-the-lawyers, bland, cage builders that they have become today.

Unless I'm mistaken, this was the only production bike with Honda's American dirt track winning, Harley annihilating, XR750 motor installed and the first bike I ever saw with a completly RED engine....cooool.

There's even a thread for these guys in BEASTS.

I thought my setup was wide. But it's not that wide!

What I'd do is... take a saw to the bottom/inside of the right pannier and make a cut out so that it will fit over the top of the exhaust and move both panniers in close to the frame.

Some thin aluminium sheet could be cut to shape and bent to fit the hole left by the cutting. A few rivets and sealant and it would be good to go...

Thanks for your suggestion but I use the bags on my Transalp as well. It may look really wide but it's mostly the angle of the picture. It over emphasizes the width. I have gone to therapy to overcome the situation and am pretty much over it, until now.

Jim.

And here I thought that Brits had tact.

This is the kinda guy who asks women what their "due date" is.....only to find out they're not pregnant. Not your best pub buddy.

This might make you feel better. Not a AT but it's almost as fat as yours...

Got an email back from Bike Alert saying they're out of stock (obviously) and have no plans to produce any of those discs in the near future. Looks like I'm back to eBaying.
