New mods and first small crash
Just installed SW Motech engine guard, skid plate and center stand. Pretty psyched on the parts and the engine guard worked great today but still think I’d like the Rally Raid guard. I don’t like how my engine guard/skid plate bolts to the engine, it still transfers force directly to it.
Went out in the desert and got some great riding in in single track, two track smooth rocky and soft conditions. Experienced gravel, interesting with some basic lessons learned. My thought for the day is you always make it until you don’t! Pretty profound huh?
Took a bit of a spill and broke the end of my clutch lever. Otherwise only minor scratches to guard and mirrors.
Next up are barkbusters and tires, probably Shinko 804/805, thoughts? Also spare levers for the kit. These stock tires were like riding on butter in the soft dirt as expected. Still a ton of fun learning about this adventure riding thing. And planning a partial kokopelli trip (avoiding RGH) and the White Rim in October🤙🏽
