    Well, dramatically to F650GS twin levels, which outbrakes the F800GS...

    The dual sport tires and their reduced traction on pavement are clearly the limiting factor here. Second rotor only provides an advantage as an additional heat sink when you are really stressing the brakes repeatedly, or when you have a sticky front tire mounted.

    For off roading it's a lot of unsprung weight that makes handling worse and the brakes feel more twitchy.

    Well the hack is a full flexi from 1925. It has a brake and a crap load of horns, what could go wrong? Definitely good for transporting young ones.

    I'd love to hear your thought on the GPR stabilizer when you get some time on it!

    Thanks!

    I posted this on my blog:

    "The GPR Stabilizer was also pretty straight forward to install. I unfortunately had to uninstall my Rox Risers since they wouldnÂ’t work with GPR lower bar mount

    I like the fact that on setting #1 there is practically zero dampening. I have read that a few aftermarket dampers always have some dampening even on the lowest setting. On setting #8, it provides a moderate amount of dampening.. though I do wish it was a bit more. I will probably ride with it on #5-6 most of the time. In addition to it being easy to use and working as intended, it looks great!"

    Not exactly today, (as it is snowing and freezing) but near the end of October. Back from a beer run and tested out the KLR influenced tackle box panniers. success. i know i know coors :puke1 but it was on sale...and up here in canada a sale on beer means a pilgramage and a bulk purchase. $35-$40 for 24 coors. i will never get used to our liquor prices...:cry

    Slight over-enthusiasm trying to get over the transition into my driveway, and it got just enough away from me that, well, let's just say I don't need a garage door opener anymore.

    If there's one thing in life I've learned it's that it's nice to have a big lever. :lol3
