    Fasst Flexx Handle Bars

    Thanks, brah. I appreciate your response. I was on the fence about changing over to the Orange myself; however, I want to ride rough off-road and still take my long overland journeys. I was looking at the warranty differences and just think that that the Beemer takes the trophy there. I did find a local 2006 950 SE that I would love to drop the coin on because I would like to do some racing/rallies. Wanna loan me $9k OK, will see you next year in the Mojave, if it's still there.

    Fasst Flexx Handle Bars

    Hey Le Cler I ll be honest here. I had some challenges with my commuter bike and so my funds went in another direction. I put the brakes on buying the flexx bars for the 1100GS. I'm sure it would be a massive improvement. However after careful consideration even with a 19" wheel plus the flexx bars it was really not worth my time to invest further. I found it better to just buy a bike with suspension that was built to do the riding I love to do. So I went Orange with a KTM 990. Event stock handles amazing. Yeah Jimmy loves the flexx bars and Eric has them too. If I were you I would invest in them. I have seen your bike and they way you have it kitted already with the 21" it will be a great fit for your riding style. Yeah over time once you figure out your arm placement on the bars and get more aggressive or adventurous you out grow the oem set up.

    Bike rental in Chicago

    Hi guys! I'm from Poland (Europe) and together with 2 mates we will be on business trip in Holland, Michigan between 29th and 31st July. Using this opportunity we will arrive in Chicago 26th evening and had a plan to spend a weekend on some riding in the lake area. Could you recommend any rental service in Chicago? Preffered big adv bikes but if this become a problem, even some choppers or street bikes will be OK [emoji4]

    Fasst Flexx Handle Bars

    Arwi, did you end up getting the FLEXX? I have read several reviews on little bikes but not much on the larger displacements. I did see that Jimmy Lewis uses them, and almost figured that should be good enough for me. I have noticed that the 19 bend with OEM causes a lot of discomfort after a while with hard riding or even long distance. Anyone using the 15 enduro changed up from an adventure bar?

    How High Do My Handlebars Need to Be?

    Great update on this question answered by Jimmy Lewis here at Dirtbiketest.com. Short answer is "it depends." What may work for me may not work for someone with a different proportion of torso/leg length. His answer seems to be risers are overdone, "don't drink the high bar Kool-Aid," and do what feels right for your riding stance.
  18. So turns out BitChute took my video down! It was because I put a link to this thread in the description and they flagged it as spam. But I appealed and the apologized and reinstated me! I'm working with our tech boffin, @Brian Wilson, to see if he can get it to embed like YouTube and Vimeo but no promises at this point.

    KTM 790 Adventure Problems

    Well then this year they move to China so another year? What many are thinking but I’m not sure. Seems like normal new bike stuff. I’d be the first to say the sky was falling but not convinced of major issues yet.

    KTM 790 Adventure Problems

    My friends Dad is a big wig at KTM and Like all KTMs it was not thoughly tested and has several issue from oil leaks to gas leaks to electric issues... Wait a year or suffer as I have in the past... Your new motorcycle will see the service department more then your garage....

    Dakar 2020

    Saudi Arabia!!! Dunes? Yes! Controversy? Perhaps! Who’s racing? Who you going to support? For me it’s going to be any American, Laia Sanz and perhaps a few independents thrown in here and there. Neil Hawke is a mate of Llel Pavey and Brake Magazine and giving it a go this time. Llel May be racing too, not sure yet. Then my Dakar girlfriend, Anastasia Nifontova, who raced and finished (respectably) last year. She is in love with me too but for some reason hasn’t reached out me yet lol. Hoping Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes come back again. Skyler was on course to finish top 10 before a shoulder injury took him out. Garrett finished well but had one bad day from a mousse failure and might have finished top 10-20 had that not happened. Both are Baja Rally and Sonora Rally alumni friends/teammates. My number 1 fave? Brabec!!! How about you?

    Avoded both C-rats and MRE's on the carrier. Hard to beat my rice/bag of tuna favorite for camp meals. Although Mountain House stuff from Walmart are ok on occasion.

    MRE's are a luxury compared to the C rations I endured in the Sea Bees!!

    OMeals: The new generation of self heating meals

    I’ve already suffered my way through more than my fair share of MRE’s. Let me know how it goes... 😂 @NavyNuke @Rogers @Joshua Jones @bruinjon We need to get the band back together!

    • This mirror is the product of much frustration- I spent years breaking other designs and wondering what was going on behind me on the road. Eventually, when I dropped my bike and found myself buying two(!) new master cylinders as a result, I decided it was time to make a really good mirror, one that would function well as a mirror, and also protect the bike (and me) from damage.

    • Time, 05:15 h. My alarm clock rings and it’s time for me to get my breakfast in my stomach, take a shower and jump on my bike! The 1,5 hour drive to the TT race track in Assen took me to the TT junior track and the CRT Holland training ground for the CRE track training. Here I met with 37 fellow Suzuki riders. Greeting us where the men and women from Suzuki Motors Holland who set up this training day.
