    Note...depending on what is trashed & the cost, there may be a better deal on KSL...check it out

    You just can't keep some guys from laying down and wrassling a pig when they find mud..in this case a Big Red Pig!:rofl

    Unfortunately I missed the shot where Infidel and his pig were both completely submerged; he got shy when we caught them and hurriedly picked her back up.:D


    He seemed a little pissed that he hadn't been allowed to finish:

    You can just feel the bond between man and pig in this one:

    It was a gorgeous day to ride...blue skies...perfect temperature...so we decided to disassemble and repair a bike instead.:freaky

    As Rooster noted, Infidel could not wait. As soon as we came to the first creek, he jumped in with the BRP & started rolling around.

    Then, after realizing that the BRP was now DOA, he conned everyone into helping him remove the 5 gallons on H2O that the pig had ingested....

    Here you see him trying to explain how the "Troll just jumped out and snarfed his wheel & caused him to fall". A likely story...

    Henderson is on state in Midvale about 7500-7800 South. I think there are a few around so check for the nearest to you.

    Infidel, you may want to PM Plaznmud to see if you can change handles.

    That is one of my designs. Planning on marketing them. Fits a saddle bag system. Working on a web sight but not there yet. Will send info if interested. Have designs for XR, 990 KTM, old KLR...:D

    Are those for hard bags? looks solid!

    if so, they'd be perfect for chill touring! I'm an enemy of hard bags for the tougher DS stuff though (paging dumbGRRRRRL on last Moab trip...). I nearly broke my leg on a KLX 650 somewhere between SLC and Cedar City (solo, but w/ SPOT) in the bfe west dez by dropping a foot for a turn and having the Pelican case crush from the knee down (paging Hick for bone names...) and don't advise hard cases for anything tough-ish. actually just a big bruise and the fear of God in nowhereland.

    I'm running the soft dirt-bagz now, and for big tours security for "your precious" amounts to nothin' w/soft bags (but wear a bullet proof vest if i'm actually near by & yer jackin my shit)

    Do ADV riders get a homie discount? I'd run hard bags on some of the stuff i ride, but do note the broken lower leg syndrome... I'd be interested in a hard/soft option (dirt-bags are soft only!; begin Pluric/Infidel crass sex ref here...) so i'll be awaiting the release of the excellent experience design of the Harcus rack! Woo -Hoo!

    I modded (Stan "the Man", modded) my subframe to handle XR650R w/ dirt-bagz to handle some extra abuse (...like, pick the piggy up by the tail rack!... research for the Hickster! KTM's suck!... Wanna trade, since they suck?) anyway, hauling gear is a function of numerous factors...

    -center of gravity (physicists, please correct me!, what the hell is moment of inertia? )
    -weight
    -security (if needed, usually not)

    What did i miss?

    I'd like to see an equation that computes the optimal luggage system for varying agendas...


    Thoughts, anyone?

    The ONLY thing I don't like about carrying gear in the Giant Loop fashion is on really technical terrain when you have to get WAY back on the seat for a big drop, is the gear bag hits you in the ass. That's about the only advantage I can see for paniers.

    My old XRR has a big steel sub-frame. No worries for the yank and crank on that pig.

    Moment of inertia can be thought of as an objects resistance to rotation about a given axis. :norton

    You're thinking to much Kev. KISS

    Piggy Alert:

    If anybody has a spare OIL FILTER COVER O-RING (GASKET) PN - 11335-mbn-670 for an XRR 650, please PM or email me. I have #3 coming 3-day delivery and can replace it ASAP.

    Background: Piggy doesn't swim well and current o-ring is torn.....:smooch

    None of the local Honda dealers will admit to having one in stock.....3-5 day delivery.......:rolleyes

    Route looks good, have you ridden it before? I've never been on the road that cuts across the lake just west of Ogden.

    Through the Impact area, they like you to stay on the main road.

    [​IMG]

    I like your route, we rode too much slab. If the Impact area is closed, you'll have a much longer reroute. The slab did help on time though.

    Some nice pictures on that ride, how long did it take to get your pig running again?
