Your employer got their moneys' worth. Problem with entities like Kawasaki is that they have emotional inertial and will do anything not to accept outside ideas.

Latest report from the weekend . The SuperRio survied some crazy single track riding. Worked better than I expected.





Opened the day with some river bed crossing.



Followed by C plus fire access roads.



The original Idea was the bike should be able to cover any road anywhere. So now its any ditch any depth.



Gotta thank good friends for pitching in to avoid scratching your prissy 450lb adventure princess.

Epic day in the dirt.

Great Pica

Your bike is epic. I do have a few questions for you though. What did you come up with for a airbox? I read you were running PODS for awhile. How did you do Your engine tuning? Power commander? Sorry if you have already answered these questions. Your bike is still a inspration to me and my build.

Thanks man and ride safe,
MT

Thanks again for the praise. Still running pods and a stock ecu no fueling changes. The bike pops a little, but pulls hard and clean. I keep thinking I will change it when I stop riding it. Havent yet found the time.

Cheers.

Wow, just WOW. I'm not sure I can say anything that hasn't been said already. A work of art that is. I helped my Dad build a Scarab back in the 70's. I halped my brother restore and rebuild the very same car over the last several years. He won top honors at the national convention and show this year. I was so proud of him. You should feel the same for your bike. It is every bit as detailed and well though out as the kit manufactured for the Z-car.

Well Done.
