    Brown Falcon, are you near Hansen's Triumph Shop? Guy is going to bring it there for a once over. If you are nearby, could you look at it for your opinion?

    It could be an adventure ferrying bikes!!

    If I brought the bike down there would you be interested. Going to balance the cost of shipping vs. roadtrip before I deploy.

    Tighten the nut with channel locks while rotating the steer head from side to side. loosen the nut and run it back finger tight. You will need to re-set the bearings after a very short time in operation as the bearings run-in/wear-in quickly.

    Looks like that shop is about 4 hours south of me. Like I said, I'd love to buy your XRL, but I don't have the money right now. I don't even have the money to buy new tires at the moment. In the future I'd like to get a CW motor, so buying yours would be awesome. Someday...

    What brake hose are you guys running with your CRF450 forks? The CRF450R hose that I have seems way too short.

    Yes. I rode two-up with luggage and no passenger pegs from Bay of LA (Baja) to San Diego. Fast. Not recommended but not too bad either. Also a bit of off-road in deep sand, definitely not recommended but it works.

    I will get right on it. Nosler or Barnes?
    WTH are shooting at in Texas with a freakin .358 Mag?! That's a lot of kaboom for any Texas critters! :eek1
    A .270 was as much gun as I ever used when I lived in San Antonio. Heck, a .243 was just about right:evil. Several south Texas whitetails and hogs fell victim to a .243 inch "intervention":lol3

    I used the XRL hose on my RM250 forks. Worked great.

    my wife has always ridden with me but it has been on a bmw either a r100gspd or a 12gs and now after a very long-long time i have a real dual sport bike and she has asked if this bike will be able to let her go with me.. a back rest and lower foot pegs will have to be installed so just curious if anyone has went to this extreme

    Are you using the XRL master cylinder also? I guess I could do that but the CRF master is supposed to be better I think.

    I doubt you'd get any better acceleration because you'd be too busy changing gears! :lol3

    I thought I had posted this, but, I don't see it.

    I was riding this weekend with an inmate on a 650L and of course the piggy got all covered in mud. Maybe pictures will pop up later!

    I took her for about an hour ride on some knarly forest roads that some riders won't go on - took it easy and all but she swears she'll never get on the thing again! :eek1

    I've ridden on the back of my friend's, and I agree that the seat is pretty hard back there. I expect you'll need to do something about that if you expect a successful endeavor.

    ReRoute it if you need to. I've just taken mine up and over the top of errthang. I also use the XRL master. Works just fine. for me.
