    Look how far the sprocket is from the spokes. Talon have adapted a narrow wheel to fit the Adventure by making an overwide sprocket carrier. That cannot be right?

    My Rally Jacket looks the same as DeeGees, just not as CLEAN.

    I think I'd worry more about your riding :lol3.....:freaky


    To be fair to my statement and the 950, my bike has the 17/42 stock gear combo and a stock set of Perelli Scorpion tires at high street pressure on it right now. Even a slight change in gearing to 16/42 or 16/44 would have made a huge difference, especially with knobbies at trail pressers. :freaky

    Been down Black Bear in a Jeep! The cover photo of the 2005 "Jeep Calander" is me going up Pokipsey Gultch......there is a good reason I chose Engineer Pass for a solo trip on the KTM fully loaded:freaky

    All run trails of the area......here is the edit with the Jeep cover photo!

    Replaced with the stainless steel units when I ordered the bash and pannier racks. Thought it matched the racks better and avoided the future scrape > rust > paint cycle on a high contact part.

    Plus... when you ride with a young buck who has sustained serious head trauma and flies the jolly roger wrap, you know there are going to be some flying W's and munched signal lights in store! :rofl

    I wanna play too!

    Picked up a leftover 2011 this morning, I've never been so in love with something so ugly in my life. :D

    Here she is, unfarkled, unscratched and unadventured. Hope to change all that soon.

    Every time I look at this bike, I can't help thinking it would be what the Imperial Stormtroopers would have ridden.
