Right back at you.

I also just wanted to mention that I will stop fabricating stands on Tuesday of next week. It has been too long since I have been out on the bike. We will be gone until early May.

Keep Testing

r00t4rd3d,

You seem like you are giving it a good test. Thank you for posting the video. It does appear that the stand stays in place on those jumps.

Transalp

The good news is that there are two owners near me that have offered their bikes for me to check it out. Hopefully I can come up with something. In the Transalp thread it has been done already. I hope to build on what has already been done.

I will be closed for a week or two to go riding. When I get back I hope to get one of the bikes.

mine still seems to be doing what it should, I've put a fair number of trail miles on, and it hasn't interfered in any way (thought it catches the odd stick)
I also mounted up a skid plate (Utah/Thumpertalk one), which had to be trimmed by 1" or so, but it was no big deal to trim, and I don't think that the skid has been compromised by the trimming.

Got Mud?

Gladly,

I see that the snow has melted. Does the ground ever dry out?

I guess you got the spring tension the way you like it.

Thanks for the update.

XR650L in Florida

I think Andy's "L" is just really clean looking. He wanted a stand to prepare for the TAT this year.







I will be gone riding for about a week starting June 15th. If you need a stand let me know soon and I will try and get one for you before I go.

All the ADV inmates have been great. It is fun talking with you and making the stands for you. Thanks for the kind words and positive response.

No, I have been just filling orders that come in for other models and getting our bikes ready for camping. I keep thinking that I will have some time and then more orders come in. the Transalp owners here haven't got back to me so I haven't pressed it.

Price Increase coming!

I am afraid I will have to increase the price on the center stands due to the idiots here in Colorado driving my electrical bill through the roof. It has not taken effect yet but I will being paying a premium for electricity in the near future.

Sorry, but elections have consequences.
