Ted: I think a Canoe would have been a better vehicle choice for that first video

Where's Mr. Canoehead when you need him


Cool camera angle on the 3rd video but your friend on the KLR got your camera wet

Your bike's looking sharp!

cheers,
Ed

Was pretty cool and at the same time a bit worrisome wondering how deep things would be at the bottom of the hill, turns out it was fine as the water started flowing off into bush.

Ya freaking klr's are always in the way

Thanks

Except when you come to that big lake of a water crossing and you say "You first!" and off he goes... It is nice to have a huckleberry along

Lick Skillet road (the steepest county maintained road in the US) was like riding on... a slick skillet. There were a couple of times I had both tires locked up and had to kick the bike sideways to stop before going off the side.





...then I wicked 'er up a bit on the way home

Who makes that control unit on the handle bars in the center?

Scosche.

I also have an I-jet but I like the scosche better with gloves on.

I'll jump in. It's from Highway Dirt Bikes. You can get the clamp with different layouts for whatever you want to mount. Here's the link:

http://www.highwaydirtbikes.com/HDB_...lay&ref=splash

And, check this out if you're interested.

What they said.. the clamp is a highwaydirtbikes.com setup (love it - I have them on 4 bikes).

Here's a full review I did of the installation if you are interested:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ydirtbikes.com



The powerlets are the KTM/BMW/Powerlet variety.

The rotary switches are part of a gerbing permanent heat-troller I have wired into the bike.. the left one controls the voltage to the left outlet, the right one the right outlet. That way if I happen to be fully dressed in my gerbings pants/jacket for a cold ride... I have independent heat control for each garment (or I can leave them on full for charing cel phones, GPS, etc).

Hope this helps

Thats such a sexy bike! You should look into anodizeing too.

When I actually get a job again im stripping my baby down and haveing all the aluminum parts like the swing arm, sub frame, Front and rear Hubs, and fairing washerss anodized black. Then Im going to get the spokes powder coated Safety Orange.

But until I get a job this is all a pipe dream....

Would you choose anodizing over powdercoating? I've powdercoated a swingarm/frame/wheels on a previous bike and it worked out ok... the problem I've found with black anodizing is it often fades (purple) over time...

Thoughts?

p.s. Thanks for the compliments
