Oooo, that looks fun. Depending on timing I would be OK to tag along.

Longest Ive gone is ~12 hours strait and 750 miles, which was a long day for a small crotch rocket (SV650n).


I went Denver --> Durango--> Grand Junction --> Denver. Long day, but beautiful ride.

I hope she gets her confidence back quick as I really want her to have something better for the moab trip than the crap 01 ttr. (Can't really complain, I got the ttr and cash for a 500$ gun)
Any thoughts in just doing the yz85 swap instead of rebuilding stock stuff??
Well what a cluster ****.
Guy supposedly put new valves and rings etc in and just had no compression which matched up with the lower timing gear not having the chain on it. Well he never did the valves. So ordered everything. New valves and rings and jut gonna get it done. Got the forks rebuilt. And it turns out it's the 225 not the 125. Aye. Frustrated with having to wait for more parts to show up for this thing but it's whatever. Be easy to sell all new I think.

Re: TwoWheelTalk

We loaded up the Titan with the bikes and headed down to Texas creek


Had a good time riding almost all by ourselves.


I was trying out an app my buddy suggested and I really dig it. It's the free version so it kept running time through our lunch vs stopping when motion stopped like it's supposed to. But it gps laid out or path with mile markers and where we ran at what speeds. Super cool and look forward to using it again. Wish I had remembered to use it the second run.

Re: TwoWheelTalk

Kawasaki had a little something something in stock I couldn't pass up. I got home and made my Vaquero look like this. Can we say "Face Off"



About an hour later it was all back together with some new eyes



I installed the auxiliary light kit from a Voyager, it should make my night rides a lot brighter.
