    I'm so pissed off that you or KTM don't offer a 2 wheel drive option.

    Carry on:D

    I'm working on that..... :freaky I have a feeling this winter is going to go by to fast.

    I'm over 40,000 miles on the AWD now, and it's been awesome. I have a few more production parts to finalize before I start to build more LC8 AWD bikes. I can't wait.

    I like that last shot CJ. You can see the roost coming up from the front tire.

    I might have a 950 frame here for you that we can use as a doner swap. :evil

    I'm working through my parts upgrade list this month to get new parts built and on for final testing this spring.

    Anything that can be made slightly stronger to give longer service intervals is being looked at. If it add a few ounces, I don't care.

    While I wait for those, I have another project I need to complete by spring.......

    My wife and I are heading off to Europe end of May for 4-6 weeks to tour and camp. Shipping a bike over and storing it there for future travels. I need to get a bike prepped and ready for shipping by March. It will be a busy in the shop at night once the Snow starts to fly.

    Yep. Honeymoon forever.

    My wife just asked me tonight,
    after I got off the phone with CJ......
    "So when are you getting AWD?"


    ....and I thought she wasn't paying attention :wink:

    If KTM failed today, this fugger would keep these bikes revolutionary for the next decade, at least :deal

    Thanks for the offer.

    At this time we plan to ship the bike to Germany. Head south from there and loop east.

    Check out the KTM factory this trip. See if they need any help....... :lol3

    We plan to leave the bike there so we can head north next year.

    Hey CJ,

    Great pics. Only 2 questions this time;
    1. What front disc are you running there? Seems pretty big - caliper mods or just the mounting,
    2. Whats with the foot peg???

    1) Its a 320mm rotor. Custom CJD prototype brake caliper hanger for stock caliper and pads. Working a dual setup that will be a bolt on.

    2) The CJD pegs are designed to brake free when too much force is applied in a crash so damage to frame does not occur. Basically, Crash TESTing proved it works. Someone has to do it. :evil
    I put a new bolt in after my crash on Cliffhanger and was good to ride home. No frame damage. This pics was after the climb and before repairs I guess.

    Thanks Craig

    Curious but with a 320 is there a need for duals? Lotta brake on that disc

    A single 300 is more than enough for the dirt, not enough for me with gear and 2-up use.

    A single 320 is nice when loaded up with gear on pavement or 2-up.

    Dual 320 should be plenty for the street rider ADV user with gear and 2-up. Way overkill IMO on the dirt.

    All depends on the needs of the rider.

    If I'm going to make left side single mounts, it's and easy image flip to have the right. ;)
