HID 50 for both bulbs and new reflector.
Hilsamer long pegs


Changes/maintenence:
Relocated sidestand, didn't work out well now its to long, will just skip sidestand for now.

Dirty,

excuse my insistance, I just want to know how it went with the Touratech Dakar rear tank you were working on couple of years ago.
I would like to know, because it looks to me the nicest solution ever.
If possible I would like to do it, with a low side GPR exhaust.

Thx

Yep.

Have to look out for 440lbs of falling metal when you are lying relaxing in the sand!



(Here's to a swift recovery! )

I find in soft sand you really need to keep you speed at silly speeds :)

That bruise looks ouch!

I actually think skinning the pre 990R models with the same style graphics will also look good. You will have a newish looking bike, without having to upgrade.

Hey There Rapid Dog. How are my wheels doing? Hope they are still clean and waiting for the ups to show up. I am changing my tires right now, well in about 15 mins. Sure would be nice to just swap out the wheels.

Jim
