2006 DRZ400S with a trash can fairing =) Found this video and followed his instructions.


It also has Clarke 3.9 Gal tank, Seat Concept, 3x3, JD jetting, case savers, Barkbusters, Kouba lowering links, Tusk rear rack, 15x41 gearing... I think that's about it. Just did East Texas 500 with it. So much fun and it is so capable.
Gonna try something like that on the xr

Radar said a few showers overnight to the East around Gonzales so I went on a muddy road search. Also put a windscreen on the husky so wanted to give it a try. A few puddles but nothing to get the bike too squirrelly. Lotsa grapes fell from the trees overnight, maybe in the wind?

Found some great roads that don’t get much traffic as the grass growing in the center shows. Then crossed over the Guadalupe. Couldn’t find a trail to get down to it so just a shot from the bridge.

A nice country church with a covered wagon out front. Maybe the original church bus?

Local corn fields are getting ready for harvest.

Finally headed home after about 150 mile circle before the heat starts up. 3 stars for the new little windscreen, just needs some tweaking.

I might even get out and ride if you head this way.

Stickers ??? We don't need no stinking STICKERS !
I was about 10 miles from your house when I finally figured out where I was. I like the “go that way” method better than actually looking at a map or gps.

Ok....so not really a ride. I'm in N. Atlanta for Under Armour basketball championship with my son. Saw a cool lake while driving to the facility from the freeway. Went back before championship game to calm my nerves.

All the Under Armour teams are in Atlanta for the weekend. The kids have been playing since Thurs. My son plays UA Rise 17U for Cooz Elite...we made it to championship game going 7-1 over the week. Lost by one in overtime to the Northern Kings from Toronto. Sucks, but we had a great season. It's my son's last AAU season. It's been a long 8 years, but it was worth it. Can't wait to watch him in college.
