I Done Gone & Got Me Some More Pics...

Here she is all growed up at 905mm tall. Ready to be test ridden...



... Shortly before getting torn down again:



... in preparation for the first of the remaining remote farkles, starting with the Remus Roxx 2-1 :



Many thanks to the always outstanding Mark at Scuderia West for getting Joanne in to take some proper pics and help ease the bright orange jones in ma bones. Way above and beyond the call of duty, sir!

Brought this home to keep it company. The bike. I already had the pup.



Just seemed fitting to put a German dog on a German bike. I imagine the BMW and KTM are outside speaking German and plotting to take over my house, seeing as I'm part English/Scottish. They may just annex the kitchen though; my family is originally from Germany.



















I'm kidding.

Now, that's funny!

However, as a part (among other things) Scottish Englishman, who's worked for a couple of German companies involved in the bike industry (one of which I now despise and one which I still admire greatly) in my time, I can reassure you that you'll be fine...

If your house is located outside of the Fatherland, the Bavarian one is unlikely to acknowledge it even exists!



I'm kidding too...

Kinda.


Congrats on the new machinery!

Because there is not an easy way to make extension rods easily reachable ( operate able ) through the air box and fuel tank area. I think you are on to something ! Thanks for the idea.
The chokes should be done in a few weeks - we are just about finished with our test set and then Chris will work on being able to program the machining on the 4-axis so that the mod can be done on existing carbs. The choke will be lever operated from the original perch on the bar. We should have updates in my build thread in the next few weeks before the bike is torn down again to start the AWD conversion and the big bore.

Put 200kms on her on Friday and decided to pull the trigger on more luggage space today. New Givi Trekker 46L. Pretty sweet. Gave her a proper wash to get all the ice and salt build up off too.

Looks like you've got the "Extreme Tough lights" LED signals there.

1. Direct plugh and play with the KTM option they have?
2. Did you need any resistor or similar to get the correct flash rate?

Didn't buy the KTM ones so had to modify the wiring. I do need a resistor. Love the solidity of them and they are quite bright. I will be replacing the factory rear signals with a set as well. They are very nice quality.

Good for riding dirt bikes. Not so good for squeezing onto track bikes. Or finding pants that fit.

So, in the end, could be worse!
