You know you're stuck when you don't have to use your sidestand....
@blur wrong tires dude
"Run what you brung" I always say. Makes the ride more interesting, forces you to make smarter choices, greater challenge, etc. etc. "Line choice is more important than tire choice" blah, blah, blah....
I've gotta new set of TKC80's in the garage but I'm not gonna put 'em on the old gal until she's wears out the shoes she's got. I doubt it woulda made a whole lotta difference.
Poop.... I've just derailed the thread :facepalm:
Here's another picture:
Nice setup you got there, E2 or E3?
Mine is just a bit smaller, E1 with a 500EXC.
Never seen a Range Rover with a snorkel before.
In the first three days I owned it- rode it off the floor and into a 1600 mile trip south. Let the farkleing begin.
Wait- already has....
WoW, thats nice !!
wish mine was still new like that
1600 miles would be quite a flogging
I had a blast- once clear of the PACNW weather.
No all I need is a nice windscreen. Something in a short, flexible carbon fiber. Designed to accelerate the windflow and reduce buffeting.
Wonder where I could get something like that?
Izzat you, Ben?!?
Sorry, Huey... Dunno :shrug
It was parked at my father's RV dealership and I got a smokin' deal on it.
King beds in front and rear, slide-out with a fold-down dinette. 2-burner stove, refrigerator, furnace, toilet, shower. I like it.
cool, I miss my 990
Me too, but I am just a couple of weeks away from replacing it with a 2006 950!
A better tire makes a better rider makes a better ride.
I'd offered to pay for a new set of tires of many riding partners to stop their bitchin and keep up the pace. Riding a tire at the end of it's life just to milk the last ounce out of it... is a total disrespect of how little free time we actual have to enjoy being out on a ride. And how in one split second on a bald tire, things can go from fun to done. Funny how cheap a $200 tire is compared to a trip to the ER for a tweaked ankle or bunged up shoulder.
With a slideout it's an E3, very nice setup indeed.
If you're into FaceBook, they have a Coleman Evolution page, highly informative.
If they can't keep up, your friends don' t need new tires, you need new riding buddies.
I Stole (I mean, bought) this from a friend of mine. http://]
Coming from a 640 Adventure, I have recently bought a 990 Adventure S 2007.
I will post some pics soon, for the moment I haven't had the chance to ride it as much as it deserves...
Been doing some cosmetic and farkling jobs instead, and now I'm analysing how to mount my Garmin Zumo 550.
I could see that to mount it directly onto the factory dash is too low for me, so I discover kind of a mount option between the clocks and the head light: it's an aluminiun plate with 4 holes. The upper part of the dash has what I figured out are two pre marked oval holes to be opened where it meets the windshield... does anybody know if this is correct? has anybody made a mount to be used there?
Other mounting points on the handlebar are not an option because I'm used to see/use it higher in fron of me... (each crazy man has his own issues... )
Thanks in advance.
