    Riding, been gone awhile but back surgery has made me whole again.
  1. I have carried rei tents into the arctic, all of the maritimes, and as far south as Guatemala and have never had any problems with them, it burns my ass to pay a lot for a tent also, but after one rainy Alaska trip in a 100 dollar tent soaking me at night I gave up and spent the money. Im heading east in morning and one thing I can say is the smaller the better if your camping in weather under 40.
  2. I will hold them for you or I can mail them to you for a flat rate box I think its 12.95 but I will be home all day tomorrow getting ready to leave. PM me either way.
  3. 4 mos old revzilla $104 first $50 to members, fit perfectly on a super ten with the tank bag. Available until tues (10-31) evening (taking a trip).
  4. New pics coming, and I did think about driving the car but I cant stand a cage for more than 2 days.
  5. just finished building bike
  6. That's good because I wont be leaving niagra falls area until nov 21st or so.

  8. Anyone up for a short ride leaving wed, taking northern route across the panhandle with stops in rogers Arkansas, Clarksville tn. aiken sc, myrtle beach sc, boston mass, niagra falls, then ride around the great lakes coming back into u.s. at international falls mn. should return by nov 30. Anyone welcome to ride along all or part, breaking in the Africa twin. Disclaimer, may be snow on route.
  9. Just dumped $4k at twisted throttle and touratech so no longer in need of any items, I am going to check out those pegs though! thanks
  10. That's a huge top box, I have used happy trails on a lot of bikes I like the strength of the boxes but 58 liters is a monster and the side boxes in some cases wont clear a box that large when opened.
  11. thanks, checked those out but hes not far from retail, appreciate it.
  12. Ive got less than 2 weeks before I head back east on this beast and need to get it built, If you put some parts on your AT and want to change to something different let me know, willing to pay fair price for stuff I can use. THanks
  13. procycle has always been my go to place for dr650 parts.
  14. I did a lot of research on this bike and talked to multiple dealers and mechanics and here is what I found, do not buy the DCT model, I even had dealers tell me this, most problems are associated with that model, also there have been claims of fork tubes seizing up but its not as common as some would make you believe on the web. I got to ride one this week and I could not believe the offroad ability of this beast even with street tires on it, so I bought one yesterday and will post up if any new problems occur.
