Yep, MT-01

Frame, suspension, brakes & bits are based on the '05 R1, the engine and trans are out of the's a cruiser that can turn and stop quite well...unless I'm riding it and I find gravel...then I find a ditch and blow the tire, bend the forks, break the shift lever, crush the heat know, cheap stuff...

my picture not my bike... front tubeless on a 12GS... PINCH FLAT.
Added a tube... rode it 1500mi home, over a decent amount of rough terrain.

last years winter dual sport ride... 300 miles in 3 days, camping off the bikes... 10-15deg weather... and he was running a tubeliss system. Found the leak about 60 miles later and plugged it.

Usually we try to get about 4 or 5 people telling each other how to change a tire... I stood back and took pictures, and provided the baby powder and soap :O

we managed to pinch the tube not once, but TWICE before getting it to hold air.

It was so hot here when this happened that the stand actually sank into the tar about 45 degrees celcius
The water in the topbox was so hot we could make coffee with it
And then also my compressor packed up
Luckily my cousin came to the rescue with a compressor

12 psi, apparently it went flat for 2.3 nano seconds. just long enough to slip a kudzu leaf between the bead and rim.

Yes, Android AND iphone GPS works without cellular data. Use offline maps and enjoy. (thanks drtbyk!)
