    Made the support for the speedo from the original plastic support.

    Relocated all i could under the stock pi├Ęce between tanks after i cut it a bit to hold the ECU.

    I was wondering when this joke was coming.

    I think what we have here is one of those instances when things are DEFINITELY getting lost in translation.

    What helmet is this? I've seen it a few times, how does it compare to the XD4 or Hornet?

    I've not tried the XD4 or the Hornet, so can't make a comparison. This one's a Uvex Enduro. For the price, it's not bad, but the antifog coating on the visor is a dust magnet.

    prepping her for the journey home here in Fairbanks. Adventure Cycle works is awesome! went there at 10 o'clock in the eve. it was the first KTM he had seen with the CJ designs oil drain hose kit. he pointed out that my rear pads were metal to metal(approx 8000mi), no prob, he had a set!

    i shoulda had the tire replaced but wanted to see how long these Heidienaus would last,got 7800 mi out of the rear! I ride fast & hard, plus the bike was loaded. thank god I bought a tire in Fairbanks & carried it with me. took me 2 hrs. this was a sunday eve somewhere in Montana.

    Some pics of the big one while some touring around the italian/french alps...

    The 950/990 is the perfect choice for travling offroad and makes always a lot of fun :D

    Is the fur all you did to adjust the seat? Or have you installed more for your comfort?
    The pictures look great!

    Thanks! my first time sharing photos on here! & I have a lot, considering doing RR on my Alaska trip. Yup, rode for three weeks with jus sheepskin on a stock R seat. I tried a couple of different seat pad set-ups, sheepskin was the best...but seemed to wear out considerably after a week in the saddle everyday. Wish I woulda bought a airhawk seat cushion, I refused to spend $650 on a seat, as that woulda almost covered all my fuel expense for that trip. I'm a cheap ass as you can tell by my $15 aux fuel tank set-up:D
