Question Front Tire

Hey Gaspipe,

Looks like TKC 80 on the rear, but what is the front tire? OH Yea, your bike kicks ass.

FB,

That's a TKC80 on the front, and either a TKC80 or a Michelin Desert on the rear, depending on which pic.

And how it looks now. Modified a little bit more.

Hey Bruce,

I guess I haven't been a regular for a while and didn't even know you joined the 9fiddy crowd. Very nice bike!! I wouldn't have expected anything less from you.

I'll have to go back thru your posts and find the ride report these pics belong to.

I'm heading down to NM this weekend to finish the last 250 miles of the Continental Divide Trail. That's all I have left -- that part just north of where you found my note where the road was washed out.

See you around. Sometime.

What mods have you done?

I am guessing its a Touratech bash-plate & rear brake cylinder guard.
Touratech high fender?
Disk rotors.
Looks like a renazco (high?) seat.
Cant tell what exhausts they are.
Cant see the cockpit changes..

Looks like a nice bike!

There's one in every crowd.

The important stuff is the suspension setup and the triple clamp geometry change. You can't see that stuff in the pics.

EDIT: It's the stuff that really makes the bike work for me.
