    Solid copy.
    Now if you could just do the rest of us plebs a favor, and ride somebody’s stock R there, just so you can give us a comparison.
    The rest of us will likely take significantly longer to get to our own versions of “there”.

    I get that ? Done the same checks. It seems road dependent, like it is there on some roads repeatedly but never on other roads.

    They can be moved in about .5" increments center forward or back. The biggest difference is in ratating them forward.

    I'll see what I can do

    I passed a few stock 790s today that were competing in the Ultimate Race Qualifier does that count?

    Seat has more cushion but is narrower. Maybe a bit more comfortable than the stock seat. Nice for me to sit on the bike and go from sitting to standing. A little bit less cramped for my legs.

    I will keep that in mind. I did 200 miles today and the wheel is rolling freely with no side to side play so seems like the bearings are fine. I had the front wheel off yesterday and no dirt or water inside.

    No. I don’t know you, nor the other riders’ abilities. But I think I can take your word at this point on the differences between the two setups after some seat time. :ear

    Love what you have done with the bike! Oddly enough, the fairing is the thing I would most like to try out. I have to find a better solution than OEM, but that’s a big spend without a test drive.

    Sure, but it's almost time there to chow down, and get drunk. Start stammering, stumbling around and drooling on the bike .. before breaking down into tears and sobbing over the bill that hasn't quite sunk in yet. :imaposer

    Post up a video so I don't begin to sound like a broken record :dhorse

    Dammit it didn't work. Pulled off the skid plate, bent the mount forward and took it for a ride, howl reduced by 90%. Put the plate back on and it's still there - not as bad but still there. Have to keep searching

    Thanks for the video buddy! :thumbup
    Was that the outpost just South of Dovre?
    Went there this summer, and treated ourselves with a stay at Grimsbu camping also : )

    The outpost i visited in this part is Tronfjell... I think your picture is from Blåhøe? the moutain top straight up from Vågamo?


    In this movie I cover the Blåhøe and Dovre part on my way to Grimsbu :-)

    are you happy with the MoskoMoto reckless for your bike? Cheers
