    Unfortunately, these are all the pics that I took that day... Had I known that in the future I was going to LUST after these bikes, I would have taken pics of every inch of the bike :D

    probably you would have used a twenty trillion pixel camera and print the bike in a 1:1 scale :D

    again, thanks for sharing, this bike is awesome :freaky

    Nice pictures


    Heck, go 2:1 and make it a garage wall paper! I wouldn't mind figuring a way to make a set of those grab handles for mine at the rear seat without ruining my saddle

    in transit...

    So frozen it was - got it warmed up and key turns fine - but guess what???

    No lights...

    I just walked away from it - I'll go out there maybe tomorrow night when warm and break out the meter and look to see why. I had to build the relay harnesses so maybe I screwed something up?? I also got chinese jobbies recommended by a inmate and everyone know the quality control on chinese goods.

    I have 'nt given up yet... But may be afterlife ?! :huh

    As far as the handles, indeed they are beautiful. I wonder how tall you have to be to grab the bike from that handle. :lol3
    I think these are pillion handles. :huh May be I am able to convince my girfriend about that and justify selling her car, renting the house or something to buy the beast :wings

    I'm happy that you have enjoyed the pics! :thumb By the way: I have the full resolution ones (3072x2304 pixels) and I can post them with a clickable thumbnail in case that you need/want to have a look at something more closely :D

    Something like that:

    The tower held fine in the 24hrs Rally Raid, but the engine gave up :D go figure :evil
    Here it is

    What I need to put is vibration dampers everywhere and make sure the aluminium sheet is bent to a proper workshop. The aluminium developed cracks when they bent it. These cracks propagated because of the vibrations... It did not fall apart, but as Pete640 and others have told me, I should have welded these cracks. No time at the time (with only one week left to race) so I did my best to sort out the electrics. Now the bike sits on the garage, waiting for a donor engine, I have time to correct everything that was not right in the first version and redesign it for the next Rally :D
    That was the point from the beginning. And I dont mean the engine failure :huh:D ! I wanted to test the tower in order to get a product out at the end because I am sick of not finding products for the 640... First a Tower. then a nice bash plate, then a Roadbook :evil a rally fairing and whatever inmates here ask for ... :freaky
