Good looking rig Tom ... Engage the brain before the bike's gear box and you will remember you are 50 and not 19.

Old Tom ... If you need help rescuing the youngster give me a holler and we'll take the RZR! LOL! We can both go out and have a good laugh at Tom's expense! :D:old:

You cant find a more dependable four stroke than an XR.

Keep us posted on how your ops mission goes!

Tom Nice rig,here is somthing you want to try. its 2' PVC held onto the bike fork with 2 auto hose clamps worked great.

taper cut the pick head slot on top so it wedges when you drop it in. drop in your pick and go. sorry photo of photo but I think you get the idea. I kept a small bungi over the top thinking it may come out riding fast/hard but I finally got lazy and left it off , it never did come out while riding. :) AzNuggetBob

Tom if you do decide to try this, you can put a pipe cap on the bottom as I did, dont forget to drill a hole in the cap. or it makes a realy good rain trap. :2mo5pow::D strap it to the fork knuckle so you get shock travel clearance.

Well the ops check went pretty much perfect today :yesss:

Everything sits up front nice and tight.

I want to make some small saddle bags so I can take more tools and such

along.

Really great day out with Justin riding that thing :4chsmu1:

Took a couple of hours to get my bike legs back under me and remember how to ride it.

Gas..gas...gas it!!!

Tom H.

P.S. that's a really cool pic of you :)

Thanks Tom, that photo is from back in my full throttle days. anyway sounds like you guys had a blast.

saddle bags are the way to go. heavy bicycle bags will work.

your going to need a frame to keep them out of the rear swing arm but after seeing what

you build that shouldn't be a problem. as you know I luv riding bikes too almost as much as finding

gold, OK almost. :4chsmu1:

Good luck on your new adventures, hope you find a bunnnch more. Bob
