Good work with the G10. How did the gearing change work out on the road and trail?
The gearing is going to be a tricky situation to solve. Going from a 15/50 to a 15/43 made it a champ on the highway, but I lost my second gear on the trail.
I definitely need a new seat Renzaco is in my future.
I have an 03 625,, and I run on the same singletrack I run my gasgas 250cc 2strokers.. I run with a and b level enduro guys and stay up front on my 250,, on the 625 I'm farther back but I'm not last.. the 625 is 40# lighter than an adventure if not more,, they hover around the 305# mark,, with extra guards/braces skidplates,, I'm sure around 315 or 320.. and most good single track 450s geared up are around 280 if you put them on a real scale.. 2 strokers,, closer to 250# but the 625 if you uncork it has some real HP and if you build it up to a 672-680 they have been dynoed at the mid 60's and better HP wise,, so its a lot of bike..
If you can find one cheap,, look for a 12L tank and seat from a 2001ish dukeII they fit nice without being bulky like the 18 or 28L and give you some extra range. And We need some more pics..
My Coyote bag from Giant Loop just arrived. The build quality is much nicer than I expected. I knew it would be good, but they really left no detail overlooked. It fits the "War Pony" nicely and holds all of the gear I would need for my light and fast style of travel.
Now I just need to get out there and get some pics up...
Nice bike. Looks like a it could be a perfect size for you and your needs.
I rode today with a LC4 (among others. That thing has sucha sweet exhaust note.
What type of bike tray do you have mounted to the LR? Are you happy with it?
I'm borrowing a tray now and its super flexy.
