    :lol3:lol3:lol3 Good point! Especially for my 15 year old daughter.

    Thankfully, I continue to fool my 10 year old son into thinking I'm cool.

    Your picture reminds me of my ride though BC last summer. I was chasing the rain all day and never got wet. Some days you just get lucky. Some day I'll buy a real camera too so they look as crisp as yours. Taken outside McBride BC on July 1

    hi karem,the tank looks deep but is the same high as the ground clearance of the adv s version,less weight on the shocks make the same height........best regs cris

    CrisCris, hi !
    So you are the mother of that "on diet" project... :D

    Ok, the minor weight is enough to keep the ground clearence as it comes from KTM even with that tank/skid plate... I didn't see that coming... great performance.
    The weight you have killed is impressive ... more than 40kgs/88lbs ! Wow...:huh

    How many fuel lts?

    What about the tanks' ressistence to rocks shocks or whatever hits it? or you have planned a separate skid plate?

    As I said before, you are undertaking a great job, congrats!
    (about its looks... each rider with his own ride :evil )

    :lol3 yeah, catch them while you can seem to be cool :D

    And as for the "pic has no Adventure in it", who cares? I envy you are already riding with your son. Let me tell you that ride with my kid will be a blast for me... can't wait (he's 5 years old now...).

    Mike, about the real camera, just remember that most of the time, the problem is not the arrow.... is the indian :d

    Why there isn't just one GoPro camera ON in those situations... :evil

    Thanks, Liferider!

    If you're son is 5, c'mon up to North Carolina and we'll get him on my son's CRF50. It's too small for him now. :D

    This Indian is blind in one eye and can't see out of the other! (joke)

    I do have a gopro now but that was taken with a 5mp Casio Commando cell phone. I have a few crashes on my YouTube page I'll send you a link to.

    That is precisely where I was heading when I took the above photo

    Nice weather this past weekend for exploring the grasslands.

    After nearly breaking my leg last weekend, I decided the hard bags are only for commuting and touring. In any situation where I might have to dab, I'm sticking with the Giant Loop bag.
