    2019 Gap Trip.

    Great Doc, I hope I can show you some great ADV routes down near the gap. O-Shit, Waite, You did not buy a new V-Strom did you. Had to have that cruze control.
  4. Congrats on the new bike. I guess we will be seeing you group riding around the (windy nine) with a stuffed animal on the rear top case and wearing a leather vest with patches. I will still wave

    Hyper pro shocks. Anyone used them?

    I have had, Progressive, Ohlins and some may remember S&W street stokers all twin shocks and I feel Hyper Pro & Wilbers are top shelf build quality and with the add on up grade features to allow easy fine tuning. I am happy with my money spent. Again this is just an opinion of a old fart and I am sure anything you upgrade to will be just fine. Good luck, I hope you are happy with what ever you decide. B.

    Hyper pro shocks. Anyone used them?

    I currently have a Hyper pro 461custom $1300 built to my needs rear shock and I also had a custom $1200 Wilbers 629 rear shock on my 04 Strom. Naturally with proper front spring/fluid and emulators. Klaus Huenecke at EPM is a master and will help you thru the process. I haven't upgraded my Z1000 other that spring at both ends and fluid change since I mostly ride it with my wife on her Spyder and that could be handled with a hard tail. Klaus also gives you one free rebuilt during the life of the shock. YMMV http://epmperf.com/

    Appalachian backroads - free route maps

    I have hit all but roadrunner and skull cracker. Most all of these have great ADV connector routes that are great and can be FUN. Max's, Do you have 4 to 6 day's to ride the KAT in 2016?

    Shoop Buys a Thumper

    I sold my 2004 back in 2011. Great purchase Chris. For ADV and Desert work it could use a 6th gear but Yamaha would loose sales of the extremely popular wr250. I changed gearing and was able to run with the Honda 650 on the fast Desert roads out west. It can be a beast in the Ohio single track woods for old farts. There is a gray wire mod you may want to do and also the standard carb stuff. For great information check out: https://thumpertalk.com/forums/forum/12-wr400f426f450f/ YES to the WR450's 04WR450 by
