    Hey Guy, what brand and model are those handguards you have on your bike?
    Are they Moose?

    My enthusiasm for the 2nd half is falling after seeing some of the pics from the rest of Utah on ADV from Dr Rock's Mobius Trip.

    Hi Chief,

    Yes they're Moose, they're the only ones I could find in black, all the others were bare aluminum. I got them at Dennis Kirk. When you order the bars, be sure to order the handguards too, I nearly froze my hands off on my trip last Feb. But you've got those hippo hands, so maybe not.

    Sounds like "Let's do War Loop Rd, it wont be that bad" to me.

    To me the X is great on the road for a 650 dual sport. I have four 600 + miles days and I was doing OK.

    Not much after market stuff and it all cost more the the stuff for other DS bikes. That being said I love mine.
