Tony: Where to?
I am jealous !
Walter, Terry, guys with FX-R bixenon projectors, how did your waterproofing hold out?
What method or improvements can you think of?
Also, were your projectors hard mounted onto the front subframe or were they rubber-mounted or somehow dampened?
Made me do this!
Tony doesn't put unnecessary stress on his equipment, remember!
The famous Tony lives in Moscow, i,m the lesser known Terry, no not "bongo brown" as someone mentioned....
I,m off at the end of May,nothing as adventurous as last year i,m afraid, but i will be away most of the summer.
I,ve a few friends i want to catch up with.
Well mine also had a bit of perspex covering both lights as part of the replica KTM fairing. The lights are never totally dust and waterproof as the back, where the bulb goes in, lets in air and therefore moisture at times.
They were hard mounted. Its the job of the front forks to dampen them.
Well drat....Sorry Tony, you would have wheelied that scary river. Terry and Rod used the magic bongo solution.
Hey, no bitchin about it if you're doing what you're bitchin about
Saw this, on the BBC website and thought about your ride through the area.
Very spooky! Thanks for sharing.
Claudio was out riding them on this when his Beemer broke down in Mongolia.
I love both of these RRs!! I have been plowing through Sibirsky both at work and at home. Such and amazing trip!! Thank you W for taking us along on such an amazing ride...
Buuurrrt, I loved your Mongolia trip. I have dreams of sipping vodka at a campsite and eating steppe stew. Your trip was inspirational. Thank you.
When steel is not strong enough its time to build a bike out of something stronger like carbon fiber.
An excellent ride report, one of the greats, thanks to all who took part and for sharing it with us.
well, no, actually, CF is too brittle, and when it breaks, good luck finding a CF 'welder' or repairman in the middle of nowhere :)
Loading up the X again
Heading southbound for Holland and reunion with the Sibersky Extreme team
The routing will be:
Ferry from Kristiansand to Hirtshals in Denmark this afternoon. Then find a nice camp and spend the night in the tent.
Heading for Germany tomorrow. Taking it slow. Enjoying the roads. Camping.
Holland the day after. Again slow and low. Try to meet up with colleges in Den Helder.
Meet my mate Erik at HotRod Welding
And finally down to Prutser and Beam(st)er
It will be good to be back on the road again
