Hey DD seems like moerofastrong bike.

Did you fit the tank, how many litre's?

What sprocket sizes were you running front & rear?

Wanna upgrade my XR to something like this, but range and speed is currently my main concern!  8)

Crossing an old wooden bridge in North Wales in 2002, think we had to pay 20 pence toll fee :)



Roodeplaat dam nature reserve December 2002



Houtbaai December 2002



Karoo sundown December 2002



Twisty roads in Snowdonia 2003 on my old R100GS named "Little Gringo"



On the Eurotunnel train enroute to Germany - February 2004



Doing a bit of ford crossings - June 2004



Playing offroad with the UKGser boys - September 2004



Misty and wet 10:00 the morning Princetown, Dartmoore National Park - September 2004



New year run 2005 with the GS boys again, it was freezing and we did around 280 miles for the morning



Snowing heavily and my GS stripped it's 3rd clutch plate the same evening this pic was taken. Fixed and sold it the week after - February 2005



Interesting bikes at the Horizons 2005 meet, this 1100 was converted to Bing carbs.



Donnington Park Moto GP 2005, very wet although a good few thousand bikers turned up.



Another muddy session at Salisbury Plains 2005



Overtaking traffic London Style



When there is not enough hours in the day left to play anymore



That sign reads "Fun Starts Here"



Going down.....bloop bloop bloop



Dark clouds may gather but we going to play..

That's a 20 l Acerbis tank with dual fuel taps, tank was on the bike but I have seen them in the shops before. Can' remember about the sprockets I only know the XR was screaming at anything over 100 km/h. Once rode it wfo 5-6-5-6 gear from PE to George, poor bike did good though  :D

My first Canal/Klip
« Reply #9 on: April 04, 2006, 11:22:09 am »
Also my first "trail" riding since getting the bike. Trip was done before the start of this forum.

Mud, mud, mud. A section of about 4km took us 2+ hours to go through :shock:




Bla-bla almost loosing it and we running for camera's instead of helping. :twisted:  :lol:


Lots of lekker water pools on the last strecht to the Klip


My first fall and the tracks I left. Look at Wino thinking it very funny! (I tried to follow Sharky - my first and last time trying to follow his tracks! :lol: )




Dirty Bikes







Klip conquered!




Still rates as my best trip ever!

If I am not mistaken, that is the bridge at Penmaen pools crossing the Estuary at Barmouth, the scene of a ferry accident in the late 1960,s 12 drowned or something like that.
Used to be some nice green lanes in that area.

That's the thing about it, only weighed 120 kg with no fancy dead battery elect start to worry about or busted radiators. You could go anywhere and never worry about things that may go wrong.
