I wasn't aware you Oregon guys still had problems with those giant red spiders. Looks like they are back.

Hey Jim...you've mistaken me for northrider in Thunderbay Ont. Yes, he had 2 AT's for sale on Kijiji, however I don't see those ads listed anymore. It's possible he sold them.

still have them

no, they did not sell and i'm not too sad about it. i'm still riding them ,still enjoying it everytime i ride them. bought a KTM 950 but we have not fallen in love with eachother yet. truth be told the KTM is too much bike for me ( too tall ) i'll give it this riding season and decide on it then. i would like to sell my XTZ750 SUPER TENERE and my BMW R100GSPD.

Hi all,

I am in the process of rebuilding my RD03. I've got most of the electrics sorted, but I can't seem to make them fit properly at the front subframe (under the clocks).

Is there someone who has a good picture of this? So without front fairing and head lights.

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

Haha, I was thinking the same thing

Looks nice! Indeed, needs some decals as a finishing touch.

The tank looks HUGE !!

Good idea leaving the fuel level stripe on the paint. The AT fuel sensors can be a bit sketchy at best. I like having something that is accurate and uses no extra parts.

Which reminds me.....Jim, During the NAATS ride I was supposed to give you two fuel sensors from Chris's bike (that we didn't use in the TA mod). When things changed rather dramtically on the last day I lost track of it.

Oddly enough, they are still in my bag (maybe I should actually unpack some day).

NAATS 2011?..............

I've been thinking about that.

Carole just had major foot surgery so I'm homebound for the next 5 weeks or so.

If I tried to put it together it would be in California and involve a bit of the Sierras, the Sierra foothills, the Coastal foothills, Hwy 1 and certainly the "Lost Coast".

The problem is that local conditions are a bit odd this year with tons of snow in the mountains and a LOT of rain up on the Lost Coast.

I'd have to pre-run the route that would likely take most of a month or two. I'd hate to have people come all this way and have the route turned into a pavement-fest on alternative routes or a slog through the gumbo-mud up on the coast.

Hmmmm....it's already mid April and I'm home until Mid May. That would leave only June......

Maybe better in 2012??
