It's a Ballistic Evo2 and comes with a 3 year warranty, only loses 10% of it's charge sitting for a year so no trickle charging. Has 100 more cranking amps than my old battery.

Cheers

Out scouting for the BCBATR close to Cache Creek.



Some of the off/road I did was too rough for the ride but fun for me to ride



















Forest Service Road

I have found so many cool places to ride scouting and I'm sure you'll find lots too. Just try and get here when it's not raining

Beautiful pictures once more.
The last one above is fantastic. Has a dreamscape feel to it. Great riding and pictures.
Thanks for the continued postings.

Hi all,

Been slacking off a bit on posting but just finished doing the BCBATR a few weeks ago. Now that's out of the way till next year I'm prepping my bike for my trip to Central America this Dec. Getting excited about riding there but not looking forward to the first few days of riding in the cold or rain like last year when I left here. But I'm more prepared this year with better riding gear. There was a few things I wanted to do before I left with my bike. Even though I put a 688cc piston and oversize valves in that did get rid of most of the vibration in the handle bars I still got numb fingers at some speeds. I just installed a new triple clamp with rubber mounts and it's made a huge difference. No more numb fingers. Next week I'm installing new Hot Cams for better top end for the highway.







These are the tires that I'm using for the trip, K60 Scout.



I have been doing a lot of riding over the summer putting on 8000km. Lots of video...........
