One pic from my week end in the desert of Monegros, Spain.



Don't let a girl take action shots...

Many more to come... tomorrow! I'm to tired tonight

I like the way you cut your windscreen. How does it work? Still better than no screen at all?

Friends don't like it at all but they don't have tinitus from wind buffeting. It looks quite weird from here. I'm still trying to get used to it.

I found that without a screen I got too much wind hitting my torso and pushing me backwards on the bike.

It is better but still some buffetting at speed. I am still searching for the perfect screen.

Do like the lower screen off road though

Nope. Sorry. Just grabbed em off the wall at Cycle Town South below Dallas. They're not as good as these Cycras (Ascerbis guards):

Hey Teck. I see Moto Pro did your suspension. I talked to John out there a few months ago and he said he had done only one 950.. course I took my 625 to him last year and he said that was his first 625 and he did a fine job.

Oh hell yes!!!!! I talked with him on the phone a few times before he did the work. He set it up for fast offroad.

I tested it last weekend offroad and it rocks I would totally recommend him. I can send you my set-up sheet if you want to talk with him about it.

Howdy,

I picked these up in Feb. after I dragged wife to MSF course to convince her motorcycles weren't (all that) dangerous. Pic shows how convincing the course was. She wanted a KTM, but they don't make 5'3" friendly adventure model yet.
