If you're looking to drain your wallet - then Engine Ice works great! Otherwise: not so much. It's fun to debate though...

On the plus side, I can see you've still got plenty of fuel, so you're good to go

You can find them onmy page. Look "bags" and scroll down to the second least "Hamsterbacke".
Each bag fits 2x 1,5l bottles . Its perfect for a camel-bag.
Right now I'm working on a solution for the safaritanks

Yeah just bustin' chops....
The cool Maine air up here seems to help mine run a little cooler I'm thinkin' .
Seriously, last weekend my wife and I were on some technical logging/fire roads and my bike was running 5 bars from time to time, once we hit 25-30mph everything was A-OK. Her 650gs never seems to get hot.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

I think it is not the mefo but the heidenau k60 scout, looks similar but little difference in the middle.

mmm thanks

I am looking for some feed back on the tar and wet tar particually..

I believe they are a good all rounder, but I suspect the compromise will be in slop off road and when you are up it on the tar twisties....

is that the case? I had a K60 Heidi on my Triumph Tiger on the rear and it was fantastic in both hard packed dirt and dry tar, with a bit more control required on wet tar...
