Good point! Especially for my 15 year old daughter.

Thankfully, I continue to fool my 10 year old son into thinking I'm cool.



(Sorry the pic has no Adventure in it)

Your picture reminds me of my ride though BC last summer. I was chasing the rain all day and never got wet. Some days you just get lucky. Some day I'll buy a real camera too so they look as crisp as yours. Taken outside McBride BC on July 1

CrisCris, hi !
So you are the mother of that "on diet" project...

Ok, the minor weight is enough to keep the ground clearence as it comes from KTM even with that tank/skid plate... I didn't see that coming... great performance.
The weight you have killed is impressive ... more than 40kgs/88lbs ! Wow...

How many fuel lts?

What about the tanks' ressistence to rocks shocks or whatever hits it? or you have planned a separate skid plate?

As I said before, you are undertaking a great job, congrats!
(about its looks... each rider with his own ride )

yeah, catch them while you can seem to be cool

And as for the "pic has no Adventure in it", who cares? I envy you are already riding with your son. Let me tell you that ride with my kid will be a blast for me... can't wait (he's 5 years old now...).

Mike, about the real camera, just remember that most of the time, the problem is not the arrow.... is the indian

Thanks, Liferider!

If you're son is 5, c'mon up to North Carolina and we'll get him on my son's CRF50. It's too small for him now.

This Indian is blind in one eye and can't see out of the other! (joke)

I do have a gopro now but that was taken with a 5mp Casio Commando cell phone. I have a few crashes on my YouTube page I'll send you a link to.

Nice weather this past weekend for exploring the grasslands.



After nearly breaking my leg last weekend, I decided the hard bags are only for commuting and touring. In any situation where I might have to dab, I'm sticking with the Giant Loop bag.
