Don't like how your bloody brand new bike matches the color of your truck...
Not that I envy you....

I like trucks in any color as long as it's black! Here is what we traded in. They were fun, but I am really looking forward to getting plates and riding from the house instead of loading them up and driving for hours to ride. I think the wifey will be happier as a passenger too-

Are you kidding me or what...?
You are killing me, man, stop it there...
Love trucks, and more the orange or the black ones

Anyway, your new blue bike will never be on your truck again....
Congrats, mate, you will love it.

Pretty remote, but great riding
Tunisia? Or most probably south of Erfoud?

Despite the original owner adding 60 mm risers.....I threw on the 2" Rox Risers. I did need to rotate the throttle cables to the bottom.

Yeah, I needed this big lift, since I am a 6'4" lad.........

Totally clean bike and that color combo was completely underrated. Love those Excel rims. A dream example of pre-owned.

Cool2 Made a new sprocket protector

This is what happens when you really want to ride but its still too cold and icy out there.

I designed and made a new shark fin sprocket protector with my CNC replacing the plastic oem part. It can be improved still:
