Look how far the sprocket is from the spokes. Talon have adapted a narrow wheel to fit the Adventure by making an overwide sprocket carrier. That cannot be right?

Not everyone rides in spandex...

My Rally Jacket looks the same as DeeGees, just not as CLEAN.

I think I'd worry more about your riding .....


To be fair to my statement and the 950, my bike has the 17/42 stock gear combo and a stock set of Perelli Scorpion tires at high street pressure on it right now. Even a slight change in gearing to 16/42 or 16/44 would have made a huge difference, especially with knobbies at trail pressers.

Been down Black Bear in a Jeep! The cover photo of the 2005 "Jeep Calander" is me going up Pokipsey Gultch......there is a good reason I chose Engineer Pass for a solo trip on the KTM fully loaded

All run trails of the area......here is the edit with the Jeep cover photo!

Replaced with the stainless steel units when I ordered the bash and pannier racks. Thought it matched the racks better and avoided the future scrape > rust > paint cycle on a high contact part.

Plus... when you ride with a young buck who has sustained serious head trauma and flies the jolly roger wrap, you know there are going to be some flying W's and munched signal lights in store!
