    some pics from a ride to Riyadh, for the 8,500km service of my "Big Blue"

    there was a dust storm for a few days before i had to leave for the 450km ride to riyadh. this is how it looked during the dust storm

    very low visibility and absolutely un-breathable air. i had to wait for 2 days to let the storm blow itself over.

    Hi,

    Who made those side luggage racks.
    They are almost exactly what I'm looking for.
    Can you mount any sort of hard cases like zega or only soft bags?
    Thanks.

    Cheers,
    J.

    Hi,
    I'm Jake, and I live in a country where it is almost impossible to go off-road:cry (stupid tree-huggers) and my hobby's are my KTM and 4x4:evil
    But because Belgium is such a small place it only takes me two houres to find nice tracks where it's allowed:clap
    So this being a photothread, here she is, my pride and joy.

    Nice ride 1WD, looks a bit like the last one.

    Sexy street wheels too, where did you get them?

    Watch the cush rubbers on the Talon hubs, they tend to split fairly easily.

    I got Woodys Wheel Works to build them for me.

    Cheers for the heads up on the cush rubbers. I need another set anyways, it was the only thing I didn't get with the new set of wheels, so I may as well make it a true "complete swap" setup.

    I hereby declare the 990ADV the most versatile bike ever!!!! :freaky

    Dang Rabid, you don't mess around! How long did you have the wheels sitting in the box before you slapped 'em on? Enjoy, you got the deal of the year on those! :clap
