    Ha! Sure is!

    I always say, motorcycles make the world seem a bigger place, but the bike community / industry is definitely something of a village.

    Are you still looking for a different bike or will you be coming back for that one?

    - CJ Designs Tail Rack
    - Rotopax 1 gal fuel and H2O cans
    - New Pelican 1400
    - Wolfman Expedition Dry Bags
    - 690 Enduro Fender and 2010 690 SMC fork protectors (supposed to be a direct bolt on says this guy...we'll see)

    Am curious about the FCR choke ( enrichiner) install, I use two FCR 35's on a Norton and this would make warming up very nice. I think that your enrichener install would be best with a cable operated by the set taken off the CVs. Because there is not an easy way to make extension rods easily reachable ( operate able ) through the air box and fuel tank area. I think you are on to something ! Thanks for the idea.

    I was bored, bought some cheap hardware and found a way to mount my snowboard on my bike! Now I can combine 3 of my favorite activities in one day, snowboarding, riding and drinking!

    Yes, it will be interesting to see just how much "lift" you can generate. Provide a cant adjustment and you might just get lift off!

    If:

    lift+speed > load+drag

    anything will fly.

    I designed this tank bag for my 09' 990R. Had a friend stitch it up here in Cambodia. It crowds my Flexx Enduro Hi bars a bit at the moment because I have the high/stabilizer cross bars on now. Parts are coming to fix that, pony express from America. The inside has velcro all around, with moveable compartments like a camera bag for flexibility. I love creating stuff for my bike. It is the second best therapy I know, right behind squeezing the throttle. Thank you God for the privilege of having and using great equipment.

    Felt my way in to work at 0430 through very dense fog. It's an hour ride, half backroads, half interstate, fog sucked but felt great to be back on the beast after a small mechanical error on my part.

    We are working on a new gps-mount for 990 Adventure and in this case Garmin Montana.
    It will also work with the Zumo, we will also make it for F800GS & XT660Z.
    I´m developing it together with "crazytok" here at advrider.com.

    I will post more pictures when we are finished with the testing.

    Looks good- here's my solution, similar bracket, but yours will be much better.

    Can't comment on the bag for obvious reasons! :evil But may I be so bold as to ask which bend of Flexx bars you're running there?


    Cheers,

    Sadly, Not much:cry

    I dream of being able to work on the KTM again. Even though I might have a blown head gasket after 18K of touring this summer:eek1 Hell, it might still be packed.....maybe I should look in those bags!!
