Okie you might also try the Indian Road on the west side of Lake Tenkiller. I like to ride the south end from the county line to Highway 10A. Fantastic!
Thanks for the info.....been looking for an excuse to head east.
nice looking build, but, radial spokes with disk brakes?? and radial spokes on the REAR wheel? bad bad idea
last year, during a tour through the Alps
now with the adventuretank and some black parts around
[/IMG]Bikes out of the shed
firstly ... i hate the dude above me ... look at all those bikes ....
now here is my 2004 640 , not really much but my first real bike since losing my leg , i have added some paint and new radiator hoses ...i want to paint the frame , (hate the boring grey)
also some pics of the carbon fibre covers i am making for my leg .
ok so there are ghost type skulls in all the orange paintwork , ....as for my leg i cant stand the skinny pole look so am making some "fairings" for my prosthetic .....
Ok...if you were a REAL KTM fan, your leg would be orange carbon fiber. Just sayin...
Serious question though...how do you use the rear brake?
And I'll close by offering a big for continuing to ride.
hi soldier guy .... yeah im debating adding a little orange to the leg ...... as for the rear brake , i took the lever off as i couldnt tell if i was pressing down on on it or not , so no rear brake at the moment , i am about to get a "clake" clutch brake ... which operates both on one lever ... just google it for info .... ..
Your comment makes no sense. Care to explain? FWIW the bike runs, rides, handles(for what it is) and stops great. no complaints at all from me.
Loving the duc!!!
In my opinion spokes should work on pull/push while accelerating/braking, not push/bend...
Nova Scotia on Explorer
radial spokes don't deliver torque to the rim effectively, as the torque vector is perpendicular to the spokes... that applies to both torque from hub braking and engine acceleration. so that torque is causing the spokes to 'wind up', and they likely will fail a lot sooner than normally spoked wheeels, where the spokes come off the hub flange at near a tangent angle.
Hey Soldier Guy,
That paint job looks bloody awesome, nice work!
