    SWmototech bars. I like them, but on the right side by the rear attachment point it bends out kinda far and my ankle rubs on it. I wish they would tuck it in closer to the engine. Otherwise the fit is great.

    I met up w/ slider on Sun for a little tour. What a great place to explore. We put about 130 miles on and it rained about 80% of the time. We still had fun.

    Thanks again Slider.

    I ended up putting about 2,200 miles on that week. No problems. Still love this bike. That make 5,600 miles. The rear Scorp has maybe 1,500 mile left on it, it really impressed me at how well it did in the dirt. The little bit of mud I found sucked, but it was only about 20 feet total. On gravel roads these tires hook up very well.

    Got a photo of that R.S. rear mounting point? I'm wanting a set of those crashbars myself.

    It mounts threw the swing arm. I don't have a pic now, but I can get one for you. It's kinda hard to explain. It just has a funny bend to it. After this trip I didn't bug me quit as much. I must be getting used to it. I'll get some pics up on Wed.

    Will do Slider. :clap

    :lol3 That looks to pricey for them parts. It would have to have been in a plastic bottle.

    That was an odd crash. Narrow road but very straight in that section. whatever happened it sure looks like it sucked. Pretty new SUV.

    Thanks for the photos, cj.

    Got on twistedthrottle.com and the describtion of the SW Motec bars states that the Touratec high mount fender kit won't fit with these bars. Kind of a red flag for me, since I eventually want to do a conversion in the future. I e-mailed twistedthrottle and asked them if a "supermoto" fender would create the same problem. Waiting for a reply from them right now. What do you think?

    Fubars,
    If you look at some of my past pics. I put the supermoto front fender on mine. It just needs to be spaced down about 1/2 an inch.

    here's another

    I put a set of Trail Tech HID light on the bike this last week. Tested them out one night.:eek1 You can't even tell the stock light is on. I have the Euro light also. I'm headed for a little ride this weekend (about 1600 miles), should give them a good test. Headed toward Canada. I'll post some pics when I get back. I made some custom mounts and put them on the forks. Now I have light where ever I turn the bars. Just like my LC4.

    Well, the weather was VERY iffy towards Duluth last weekend so we headed towards the UP. I did an IBA saddle sore 1000 on the 950. The roads that we took were mostly 50-55 mph so it took us a total of 22 hrs to complete.

    We (Q-dog on his DL650 and I on my 950) went from Thorpe, WI to Sualt Ste. Marie, MI. Then we headed home to Milwaukee. We were running short on miles so we headed to Kenosha, then Lake Mills, then home. Started at 5:30am, finished at 3:30am. We were pooped. I slept till 2:30pm on Sun. The bike ran great, it needs a new rear tire very soon. 7100 miles.

    The lights were too bright for normal road driving, too many on coming cars, but on the gravel back roads it was great.

    pics soon.........

    First, Here is the rear rack I made for my trip to MO. I made it to fit the Chase Harper soft bag and it worked great. I also used that bag for my IBA ride weekend, no hard bags.

    Another view. If any one is intrested, I may make a small batch of these. I need to get a count. PM me. I'm looking into making some that will fit the super enduro and the supermoto.
