Someone with not so log (short) legs has interest in the bike. LOL
Adjusted the suspension on the 701 for Fl. riding and set the sag. Still working on the lower part of the dress (graphics)
Worked my ass off on the 690 this weekend. I installed a Koubalink to lower the bike 1 1/2”. Upgraded the upper and lower tank bolts, installed Rottweiler intake, Powercommander 5 and cannisterctomy. Gave her a good test ride on the street and I’m happy with the upgrades. I also replaced the fuel filler with a billet filler and installed the GPS. Oh... and an oil change and bath.
Should be ready for Starbucks now.
Pulled the bike out Sat and Sun morning for some quick skill training.
I rip around a undeveloped lot behind some businesses close to Castle Cole. Pretty much just whoolies and piviot truns.
I also pulled the kick stand and rear rack in anticipation of the upcoming moto cross season (head light comes off on the ride days) that starts as soon as it cools off some.
Not a big fan of the jumpy jumpy stuff but it's fun to get a ride in at the local moto farm and I like to hang with the guys. Brewery debriefs is always class! Being the weakest rider - not as much fun! I try to compensate my weak jumping with whoolies and stoppies and ya know the important stuff!
Pretty much the same view over and over
After Sundays effort I made bacon and looked at my bike.
Everything is good with bacon ya know.....
Got a project van. We’ll nickname it “Free Candy”
You could fit a whole kindergarten class in that thang!
I just need enough room to put on my clown suit
Lots of possibilities....
Dibs after you’re done fancying it up!
I foresee soundproofing/insulation and some tie-downs on the floor. A cot, portable crapper and a few jugs of water and you're all set...
A buddy of mine had it, and for years did floor covering work out of it. Got bit by the new van bug and bought a GMC in similar configuration. When he did the carpet in my little house he mentioned that he still had it, and a deal was struck.
Don’t have a hard fast plan for it yet- too many irons in the fire already. I could possibly see a 4wd conversion happening at some point though
A 4wd would make and awesome ADV van! I have seen a few of those out west and these peeps were either doing MTB trips or motorcycle trips while camping in the middle of BFE anywhere...
They were Ford conversions IIRC...
The problem with doing a 4wd conversion on the extended van is that there’s 5’ of van behind the axle so departure angle would be seriously limited in most any real off-roading.
Just give it a 2ft lift...
How much longer inside are those Dodge super extendo vans than something like a Ford E350 long body van?
It’s 14’ and change from the engine cover to the inside of the rear door
Not to derail the bike thread, but Ujoint off-road says 4” lift is mandatory for 4wd for my E350
