    Francois from Dual Sport Touring just hooked me up with a set fresh from the molds in Oz. Threw them on yesterday and these things rock! Put 5+ gallons in the left tank alone. :deal

    I figured if I was going to come to West Fest this year I wanted to actually cover some ground instead of having to stop every 120 miles. Now all I need to do is swing by dad's house and pick up my high front fender.

    I'll accept that, pretty much what it is. lol That was a random side road that paid off during a 5 week solo Yukon and northern BC trip last summer. I saw a pickup and quad trailer at the end of the road and thought if it was worth their time to haul and unload.......

    :tb very nice! Doesn't look like a great pumpkin at all.. the pelican balances it nicely. :nod

    Personally.. I love how the low fender looks (more than the high fender) but I've had a full front lockup in the mud with the low fender and I fear that happening again more than I like the looks :D

    Which front rotors are those? Stunning wheels :thumb

    Hey Matt!

    I'm not sure yet. Definitely going to shoot for CJs get together but beyond that :dunno

    If I could break from work long enough I'd love to run the TAT... If I really got the time I'd ride from here to my Sister's house in Newfoundland... but I'd need a month off and I don't see that happening.

    I can have good income or I can have time. I gotta figure out a balance somewhere in between... :cry

    You coming out west this season? :freaky


    You need to post more photos! ....you've some mad photography skills :lurk

    How about if the number of Gallons you hold + the number of Grand you've spent on upgrades totals 10Gs you are a member?

    Not sure Safaris even existed at the time; at least that extra tank looks pretty inconspicuous next to the Gobis

    Yeah, that's the reason I left the low fender on, I like the way it looks more. I don't do a whole lot of dirt that's really muddy but I went on and made a high fender kit so I can swap out if need be.

    Those are Woody's Caponord tubeless wheels that my wife got me for Christmas with Galfer wave rotors.

    Talk.

    It's like a 500 pound motard. :D
