Hey Guys,
Thanks for all the nice comments - I'm really glad that you enjoyed the RR!
It was a lot of fun, but I'm glad the report is over.
Got to watch a movie, instead of having to mess with photos all night.
(that was a really funny one, by the way. have you seen it?)

Anyway, "xylo" is greek for "wood." And "glyph..."


Plus, it just sounds cool. "xyloglyph."
Best as a morning xyloglyph, though.

I thought this was already covered?
The Scorpion Rally front is his hands-down favorite. That's the only front we put on the 990 now.
I think that's going to be his XR650R front, too.

The Scorpion Rally rear is great for the money. It doesn't last as long as the D908 Rally Raid, but it doesn't cost as much, either.
Hooked up nicely, 2up. Gave us 2000 miles.
The only time we had slipping issues was at the very end (on the knoxville day ride), when it was bald, but any tire is sucky when it's bald, right?
He hasn't tried the Scorpion Rally rear when he's by himself, but it won't last nearly as long with the spinning.

The D908 is still his favorite tire, hands down.
However, with D908s at $200, there are many Scorpion Rally rears in our future.
We would splurge on a D908 for Baja or the TAT, but for every day dirt, it's the Scorpion Rally.



Oh, yeah - I found a map that I never used - the Playboy magazine loop.



closer.




And, one more teaser pic from said magazine...


{{ earmuffs! }}






Don't you want to find out what's under the dots?? Go get the magazine!!
go on...shoo!


All right, that's it you guys.
That's all I got.



now I'm gonna go see what hanksmybuddy is up to...


Have a great day!
Again, thanks for reading! Don't forget to post up if you find the cone on Lippincott or if you find the playboy.


P.S. I heard that someone thought Matt crashed at the top in the video of Goler? Nope.
Believe me, I would have heard it during filming and would have gone running! We have intercoms, remember?

I've ridden with Matt, he is one heck of a rider. He man handles that bike like it was a moped!

I thought that movie (Paul) was hilarious.

Okay. twist my arm...(I spent so much time on this thing, I'm not above breaking it out again )

Another great report from the Wans

Where to next?

Thanks for taking the time to share you Adverntures! The pictures, links, vids are so much fun. I know it's very time consuming to put a report like this together and I appreciate the effort you go to.
