    My DR800 moto-my wife- an easy life
  1. Go and have a look in my garage.......
  2. Get a Scottoiler. It's the bees knees. My first chain lasted 6 years and 20 odd thousand miles.
  3. Go and have a look in 'My Garage'. We laced 2 DR 800 rear rims to OE hubs and fitted it with street tyres. Then a race can, new headlight, blue led bulbs (it was my 17 year old sons bike.....), bark busters, air box mods etc, etc.......
  4. If you have to ask you will never understand. Just move on. See 'My Garage'.
  5. I had my stock hubs re-laced to some rims. I paid about £100 for the rims and then had my local bike shop lace them to my hubs. I paid about £40 for the spokes and labour. It's in 'My Garage'.
  6. Go and have a look at 'My Garage'. My sons Yamaha TT250R Motard is there. OE hubs with DR800 rear wheel rims. A 110 on the front and a 150 on the back. The rear looks bigger because we screwed up on the profile when we ordered the tires. The rear is now sha#ged so the replacement will be a 140/60/17. The bike is a hoot and the 'Chicken Strips' are down to 5mm and he claims to be able to get the pegs down........ I've given up watching, I'm his Dad so I worry........
  7. 400 miles round trip, at the weekends. I work near Kielder Forest and travel home to the folks in Shrewsbury, mostly along the M6 motorway but there's about 30 miles of A roads at each end to keep me sane. I can also now do it in one hit ( 24 ltr tank and a re-sculptured seat). My DR 800 sits at 80mph on the motorway with no probs and returnes around 50+ mpg - even with all the luggage. (See 'My garage'). P.S on a good day...three and a half hours.
  8. I'm in. looks good, I hope it developes well.
  9. No 1 is better.
  10. Anyone going? I'm there Sat 3rd - Wed 7th. I'll be on the DR in 'my garage'.
  11. Anyone going? I'm there Saturday 3rd - Wednesday 7th.
  12. In the UK we can get Oxford 'Hot hands'. A hand warmer you velcro around the grip. It takes about 20 mins to fit. If you have a couple of bikes then buy extra switches and wiring and you can swop them in about two mins. I've fitted them to my DR800, with a set of muffs I can use summer gloves all year round, infact at times they warm so well you have to switch them off. http://cgi.ebay.com/OXFORD-HOTHANDS-Heated-O-Grips-HOT-HANDS-Free-Comfy_W0QQitemZ8051754819QQcategoryZ25643QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem http://www.whitehorsepress.com/product_info.php?products_id=5281
