    This was a road that I was on. This bike just can't go past a road like this without going down it.

    Yes, it is an Altrider rear rack :D

    When I bought the SW-Motech I also bought the mounting plate for the TraX but ended up not using it.
    Why have a plate mounted on a plate :wink:

    I really like the Altrider and this is what I did to it :D

    Had to install these spacers because the TraX bags have feet, you can see it on this next photo. The spacers I installed raise it just enough that the feet from the bags sit on the altrider rack with just enough pressure that the whole bag does not move. At the same time, the metal sheet under the Trax that slide into the four spacers does not touch the rack so it won't scratch it. :D
    I've done 6000 miles without any problems.

    Gentlemen, Little off topic but how do you guys make those red lines in your posts? I have seen it on other forums also. I am slightly 'puter illiterate but going to be retired soon and wonder. is it a program I buy or what? On my bucket list is to be able to use this laptop to it's full potential not just a glorified typewriter, after spending a lot of time on my new s-10 that is.. Thanks

    You mean those red arrows and text in the pics above?

    You need a photo editing program, such as Photoshop. If you're using a Windows computer, press START, (bottom left Windows flag icon), then go to ALL PROGRAMS, then click on ACCESSORIES, and under there is a simple program called PAINT. You can then load a file (picture) from the top left icon and then fool around with it, arrows and text and all, then save it. Very simple.

    Awesome picture and effort in tackling that trail! What front lights and bracket are you using? Thanks,

    Brother in law and I set out for a day trip, Southern Illinois was the destination. Cave in Rock, Garden of the Gods Shawnee National Forest were what we wanted to see. Leaving TN working the backroads north up through Land between the Lakes.

    There are many neat little river towns on the Ohio. Rock in Cave is one. Here are the bikes the Ohio in the background.

    [​IMG]

    Cave in Rock on the banks of the Ohio river was a human trap in the late 1700's early 1800's. Travelers floating down the river were lured to the cave with the promise of whisky and female company. When intoxicated they were murdered and robbed. Many gangs also used the cave as a hide out. This hoodlum is my bro in law.

    [​IMG]

    A little north and inland is Garden of the Gods. Its basically large rock formations (odd ones too) with great views. I love places like this.

    To get this tread back on track heres another pic of our Teneres'. We both have enjoyed these bikes. My bro in law and I both grew up on dirt bikes as kids. Later he rode cruisers (HD). I liked standards and sportbikes and enjoyed an f4i track bike till it got so exspensive. These bikes have given us all road and touring capabilities like neither of us have had. We'll ride dirt,backroad twisties interstate all comfortably with good range. Totals for the day 475 miles, 46.6 mpg and many smiles.

    With the last of the local Sierra passes opening I knew where I was going. My favorite spot for lunch is a walk down to that cascading waterfall. If you want to see any snow better get up there quick boys, not much left this year.

    Just got back from a 3 day Southern Utah trip. As a side note it may not be the best
    call to ride with a Honda XR400 and a KTM 690 when on a Beast. The stuff they took me through.:eek1
    There was a fair amount of slab to get there. The 400 trailered and the 690 actually rode the whole thing.
    Don't know that he enjoyed the slab part. I'm sure the hand signal was not directed at the loping S10.:lol3

    Some trail samples. First time I really was concerned about having the factory bash plate.
    And yes it did get bent, and no the sump was fine. Phewwww.

    Look ahead of the Honda rider and you see the road twisting up the mesa. This was
    pretty cool because it switched back almost vertical.

    [​IMG]

    When you reached the top you can see the road we came in on right in line with
    where you end up.

    [​IMG]

    Don't really want to miss a turn up here.:eek1

    [​IMG]

    You all know I hate sand. There is a reason. Teneres suck in it.:lol3

    Love this pic, getting away from civilisation is what drives me to find spots like this. Not that we have much like that in Oztralia.

    Good trip and nice photos. :clap
    I do hate the sand too. I was in Morocco with a GSA and was terrible riding in the sand!!, I want to try the ST but I suppose is not much difference.
    Hope to go with the ST in december and see.

    This time of year Utah is known to have four seasons in one day.
    Heading into a black cloud it suddenly started to hail. Painful hail.:bluduh

    Started to clear up.

    This rock formation is at the mouth of Eagle Canyon. Well named.

    Geez, not sure why this looks so much like an old man trying to hold
    his stomach in while a hot girl walks by.:lol3

    Common theme....

    Ahh, finally signs of civilization. I have to admit some time after taking this shot
    I had to get on the highway. It was divided and I didn't notice. I was just so happy
    to be on pavement I took off up the road. I'm hauling. A car is coming at me in my lane
    he swerves and stays to the left. I'm shaking my head in disbelief. About then I notice
    the other highway I'm suppose to be on on my right. I'd been driving up the wrong
    side of the road.:eek1 :shogI might be an official Aussie now.
