Korean pod has opened

My wife's flower box had this large pod-like thing growing in it for a while. It was open and empty on Sunday, and Monday I was riding this.

The SMO Skid plate and crash bars have been well tested as well as the TKC 80 tires. It's just a great bike to be on the road and dirt , I love it.

You don't like silver or anything do you?? Nice bike and photos, thanks for sharing. Love the way you changed the blinkers to flush mounts and moved the location. Looks like you tied them to the horn or something since they ar on all the time now. What kind are they, they seem larger than most? Also, how did you fill in the fairing and match up the paint so well?

Sorry my friend, but I did not do any of the mods so I don't have a lot of info. I bought the bike used as is. I added the Motec Crash bars and skid plate. The previuos owner was a stock car driver and had access to a complete list of machanics and paint facilities to redo the bike with lots of little mods. Like these.

All bolts were covered.




Lights








Bar end mirrors with foam grips



He upholstered the stock seat in silver and had a Corbin also made. Corbin




What is really suprising is that none of these add on mods have been damaged by any my off road riding. The paint is a little scratched and the wheels are not as round but over all its still very good looking bike. The black markings on the tank are grease pencil notes I use for directions.

My Tank Top GPS




Sorry I wasn't much help.

Hey Tombababe, I'm 5'10" with a 31" inseam. Yeah, it's a tall bike but you get used to it.
5'10'' anyone in meters?????? I am 1,76 meters tall.

5'10"= 1.78m

1.76m= 5'9"

31" inseam = .79m

Does that help?

Talking a new one of mine..

heres another up-to-date shot... test loading my wee for the big trip...


and this one is a sunset pic at Betty's, with JJMSP's bike in the foreground



and....that silver seat looks nice!!!

as far as the seat height, the fuzzy cover helps make it taller, but with me being 6'2", with a 37" inseam... the bike still doesnt feel tall enough

Riding from S.F. to AZ on Saturday









Very comfortable for all 850 miles. By far the best long-haul bike I've ever owned. Unfortunately, it was unseasonably cold last night. It was 50 even in Needles, CA and was into the upper twenties at sunrise when I arrived here in the mountains. Saw some elk, some coyote, some deer and a few snakes, bunnies and squirrels. Didn't hit any of them .
