    Looks like a nice ride . While the long adventure pegs offer more support then stock short ones they are a
    longer "lever arm" and have caused the peg mounts to be broken from the bikes frame . I like to stick
    with the mid length versions .

    I Hear you, Max....:thumbup

    This is a known problem w/this bikes frame design even w/ the stock pegs... It was the perfect setup on a left-hand uphill switchback w/some skaggy rocks sticking up out of the powder and one walked my front wheel on out... I stand up a LOT even on the pavement on the little goat roads up here. Me poor feet loves the pegs and I already came up w/a fix....:wink:

    The tubing is tapped on both ends and now holds the peg mounts together and not just by the frame mounts....:gdog

    Yeah not a lot of building going on here at the moment..:dirtdog

    My mother passed away in July.. So I spend almost every day after work going to see and take care of my 90 year old father who cannot see too good or drive that eats up a lot of my free time.

    On the other Hand my wife just spent 4 grand on materials that will remodel her bathroom this fall and she's not done yet....:stupid

    O boy I can hardly wait....:baldy

    Did I miss something? Is the hole-y grail of holes done and gone? The CX650 is no more?
