    Then yes I do. I actually had a Tiger 800 XC before the 690. Wish I could have kept that bike and added the 690 or FX to the stable. Wife had other plans.:deal

    if you want to bring the YZ up to Erzzzburg racespec™ standard you need to ditch the sardine skin/cleaner/filter. The weight savings alone will impress. Its all the rage in Finland

    In a back to front kinda way....I've had the same recent bikes as you, if you count a Beta 250 as a YZ that is......you got excellent taste!

    I actually got my ECU mapping for the 690 from an ADV inmate that lives in Finland. I have also been there myself with a company I use to work for. Cold as a well diggers ass at that place. Hyvinkaa, Finland

    I keep down sizing because I'm not that young anymore and the weight makes all the difference on long rides through two track and single track.

    This train has derailed! Why don't you guys talk about motorcycles?




    :hide




    The high point of the wild wonderful whites (besides the crazy ass shit) is Hank 3 plays "going straight to hell" and the old man tap dances at the end.



    Found it! I love me some Hank 3!

    Do you weight it down with superfluous geegaws and doodads such as footpegs and fasteners? Does it have radial cams?


    Is it even Race Spec™?

    on the subject of weight, I bought a lithium battery today.

    It must have looked like I snatched it from the ladys hand when she handed it to me, I was expecting normal battery weight, but when there was hardly any weight I nearly threw it through the roof...

    They are pretty weird. After a lifetime of lead acid batteries they seem unpossible.

    My Ducati came with one. i did the same thing when i went to remove it for the first time, wasnt expecting how light it was. Looked like a football player trying to prevent a fumble. Amazing how they can cut that much weight out of a battery

    It's amazing what Chris Birch can do on one of those 1190's. That will be interesting to see for sure.

    I hope that Tourtech BMW comes equipped with a winch.

    All of the above. And i have the fastest color. Blue. If anybody else chooses to get the superfluous geegaws make sure you get the bonafide superfluous geegaws. There is a difference.
