We just find it hard to drink from a sticker.
Hey, now, Jaumev...
Not all Americans travel that way!
Here's shots from two different week-long trips a year apart...
Granted, I wasn't camping on either journey, but I don't haul much more when I have camped... And either way I have to haul some medical support gear with me no matter where I go. I used to have to travel a *LOT* via air in a business I was in, and there more than any other I learned all too often "Less is More"!!!
Packing light sure helps the motorcycle's handling, too!
what handlebars do you have on that beautiful blue motorcycle
Those are plain ol' stock Yamaha Super Tenere handlebars. I've got 'em mounted in a set of Rox "Pro-Offset" block risers...
And I've got 'em rotated back in the clamps a bit more than Yamaha had 'em in the stock clamps.
Mind you, I'm not a fan of the stock handlebars. Too much sweepback at the grips for me, but I've learned to live with it for the time being, mainly because I just ride the damn thing too much. I just don't want the down time experimenting with other bars. Still, one of these days I'm going to end up with some with much less sweep and maybe a 1/2" more height.
"Heading towards the Mokee Dugway?"
Yep, and Mulie Point
"Packing light sure helps the motorcycle's handling, too! "
They're supposed to handle??
This was last August headed up it.
Looking down at Valley of the Gods road, yep rode that to.
Snow flats Rd two up, didn't make it far before having to turn around. The sand washes were muddy and it became work not fun.
We are headed back to Utah this year for two weeks. I have unfinished business there. Only this time I'll have K60's on the bike.
Very Nice HDR
It's rare to see it used well. Those were nice shots!
17 Jan 2013 and its 82F here!! Took my jacket liner out then went for a cruise to PCH to cool off-
Yes the little silver trim/bezel thing flew off the other day-waiting on the new one to come in. I kinda like the dash all black, might pull it off the new cover and paint it black.
72F thats more like it..
Great pics. Nice looking place to ride.
And yea, repeating that trip with K60's will be a different experience.
Same great views. But substantially better handling.
WOW.... Nice pictures... It will be those temps here in TX in not to long... and then shortly after that the death heat of 100 + everyday....
Nice!...its 5F....no that's not a typo....riding season seems so far away
From what I've read, using the Rox risers requires cable lengthening. Was that your experience?
That's true with the 2" (or taller) *PIVOTING* Rox Risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/cart/showdetails.cgi?parts_id=10081 - and you *DO* have to get longer hydraulic hoses, but not throttle cables.
But not with the Offset Block ones I posted previously. I made no cable, hydraulic hose, or wiring changes to fit them to my bike, and have ridden that way for over 20,000 miles with them installed.
BTW, please note that the 1.75" *PIVOTING* risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/cart/showdetails.cgi?parts_id=10037 - will *NOT* work either, but for different reasons. With them there is not enough room between Rox's upper clamp and the pivot bar to all the OEM Yamaha upper bar clamps to fit in there.
Hope this helps!
A bit chilly at the house but surprisingly warm at the coast, they tell me there is some little surf competition going on this weekend near here. Not ready to break out the wet suit, but perfect riding. Real adventurous
VERY impressive, keep em coming!
Any body want to see cruise ship pictures?
Snorkel shots? Wife in a swim suit? I was going to say fat people on
the beach, but that's kinda subjective with a guy my size.
Anyway, out of the Utah cold and quite sunburned today.
Ok , I like bikinis ... and I trust your taste
I'd love to see some pics of your lovely wife in a swimsuit... After all, I ride a *BLUE* Super Tenere!
