How did I miss that little roundel on the wheel? I just saw silver color and that flared wheel well. Aren't all Porsches Silver?

Waiting at the door Monday after work:





After a quick 100 mi. ride yesterday, all I can say is that was the money well spent.

Looks like a new shape. Low, wide, with a short narrow section for scooting into when standing the bike. Pretty creative solution to the complaints the seat is too tall for riders under 6 foot.

I ordered a custom 16" iphone powerlet cord from powerlet so that I can see calls when I'm riding between clients and charge the phone on the road.

I like the RAM mount system.. the entire system removes in 10 seconds when heading offroad or I can swap my SPOT or my camera into either position.

By 'eck! You've some toys on that bike of yours Geek

I had a few parcels delivered this morning too





Touratech lockable Zumo mount, Zumo cradle with power lead, KTM Hard parts bracket and a KTM rear bag.

Started off with the bag first as I'm waiting on an Autocom I'm bidding on on the Bay before I fit the satnav gubbings.







I'm well impressed with the bag, it'll do for my snap and metal flask on my commute as I don't like it sitting at the bottom of my back in the rucksack, plus all my sandwiches are usually crushed

Slowly but surely I'm getting it to how I want it and how I had my old 950!

Being that I'm 5'7" with a 32" inseam when I have my boots on, I asked James to keep it as close to stock height as possible but still have the 40/40/20 mix I needed.

I put some of those cheap highway pegs on today.. they seem to work fairly well! At $21 I'll consider them disposable if I trash them

We're off for a 700 mile to the great sand dunes tomorrow.

warning: they are cheap extruded metal so if you over crank on the bolts you'll snap 'em.

Received my new Renazco seat in the mail today.


The Renazco loge fits in nicely.



The new seat feels much better. Although now my feet don't quite hit the ground all the way anymore, and I'm 6 ft tall.

Talking Oh..... what a difference!

Got my forks and shock back from Superplush Suspension today. I already had the forks revalved, and stiffer springs. I thought since I was sending the shock in to get revalved, and my ride was going to be idle for a moment, I might as well send the forks in for service too. While the suspension was away I put on some fresh tred, D908 and a D606. I changed my gearing from a 17/42 to 16/45. Two weeks ago I rejetted the carbs with a Head2Wind jet kit (#jp1001) This is a whole new ride! WOW!

No problems Geek, no dividers, but it's got a pocket on the underside of the lid and a zipped pocket on top of that. It's expandable like the KTM tank bag. It's simple to remove from the bike too, just a small pull chord and it's off. I went to referee a football match yesterday and I got all my kit and kaboodle in it without a problem

Pics;









A couple of elasticated straps on the outside, not sure what you'd put on here as it's not very secure
