    That's still 60mpg running it hard for 2.66 a gallon tank. I'm okay with that number and it should only get better. Nice picture by the way!

    Thank you, one of the local stations in my hometown Kungsbacka (Sweden).

    I had a CRF250L 2013 before and run 3.7 liters / 100 kilometers in average. I think the Rally will improve that, time will tell I guess.

    Installed my used CRF250L Hepco & Becker Mini-Rack today. Fitted like a dream and is a realy high-quality product. There is a larger exstension plate that can be bought and swapped from the standard you see in the picture. If you remove the two bolts closest to the saddle the seat are easy to remove without removing the complete rack.

    I'd do that if it had provisions for the Givi Monokey topcase. Nice rack.

    Giant Loop Mojave on the Rally. Seems to work well and easy to fit on the bike. I will get some attatchment fitted to the subframe bolts. If you fasten the lower straps around the frame as i did in the picture it comes close to contact with the exhaust pipe on the inside of the frame.

    Is that your camera angle that makes the Zumo look so big, or is the dash that small?

    The GPS is mounted on the Ram Mount with a short Ram-Arm. Still it comes closer to the rider and the eye, for better and worse. The function is great but it looks a little ugly from the side.

    Have you anymore pics of that? I have a Zumo I was hoping to move between bikes. Does it completely block your view in the immediate front?

    It takes away a little bit of the closest view in front of the bike. I think it will be of no concern when you ride. If you must see the closest in front off the bike you would proberbly choose to stand up on the footpegs riding technical.

    I will taket some picture of the installation from the side next time in the garage.

    Right, as long as you can see reasonably down. I certainly don't dwell on what's immediately in front of me. It's generally too late at that point LOL.

    Has anyone installed bar risers yet and how did it work out?
    To my eye the cables look surprisingly tight for a significant raise.

    I'm running ProTaper Contour Mini-High bend bars with Zeta riser/adapters. Adds A bit of height (Between 1&2", I never actually measured it). Does tighten the cables a fair bit, but no binding or sticking.

    Rear end is looking tidy. 8x6" plate, DRC edge tail light and a 250L rack I found on eBay. Going to live with the stock seat for a while, but a suede Seat Concepts seat is extremely tempting.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Is the mount you have attached to the bike a standard RAM mount?
