A balmy 37 deg as I headed home. Still running-in my Safari tanks and Rekluse clutch. Very impressed with both so far. Had the tanks full and still running standard suspension ( settings almost maxed out mind you ) I found the road handling is fine...might prove to be overtaxed offroad as most say. If anything the bike was more settled in deepish sand and gravel.
Hey Roundoz,

I recognize your bike from the KTM Nat. Rally...superb job with the tool container you fabricated!

You really need to consider constructing units for sale!

Unfortunately there are several hundred man hours in that piece...a labor of love. CJ's solution is eminently practical and affordable...it just doesn't work with the Jesse racks, and I like the way mine mimics the oval of the pipe on the other side. If anyone wants to build their own the starting point is 6" tubing oval-ized in a hydraulic press. This makes very good use of the space available once the bulky pipe hanger bracket is removed. If a simpler cap was fabricated, one that didn't fit inside the tube, and the finish was painted rather than polished aluminum, it would be easier and cheaper. Happy to provide construction tips and photos via pm if anyone's interested.

Installed uni-prefilter. Interested to see how well BMC + uni combo work.

New pegs and 2 in 1


Look at the difference between them and the standard ones


And time for a new tire

Time to ride now

I guess there was some kind of hole for the rear cylinder too, given that you're still smiling

Nice video. Did the case suffer from that hit?

I see some "wave effect" on some on the takes, like the one facing backwards to your left foot. Are you using a class 10 SD card?

no, no damage at all from the hit. just pushed it back.

yes i'm using a class 10 card. it's a scan disc microSDXC extreme. the best one they make.

the backward shot was the worst one. it needs more action and to be able to see the roost of the tire. problem is, if i go out nay farther then i threaten the camera with more damage. i will keep working on it and figure it out though.

thanks for the comments. really wished i hadn't lost the top of the daytona trail it was by far the best bit of trail. oh well, live and learn.

laters,

laramie
