Indy - the Idaho pics look great! They remind me alot of the Gifford Pinchot Forest, (just North of Mt. Helens), it is far and away the most beuatiful place to ride, still a few few snow patches in July above the tree line and you often eat lunch with the Mt. Goats. A group from my club goes over to Idaho every year in June I think, they hit the ISDE qualifier in Murphy and then ride the Silver City area for 3 or 4 days. I was supposed to go last year but I got injured Memorial Day Weekend :bonk:

Here are some pics from Gifford Pinchot, if you and your crew ever get a wild hair and want to come up to Washington State, let me know - Full day 75+ mile loop, everything from dark loamy quad trails to technical - above tree line single track :applause:

That yellow is impressive. Did you powercoat the frame?

Looks like a lot of work and pride went into this.

I hope you had another bike to ride while working on this.

I did powder the frame after the first year I had the bike....as far as pride and work....more so, a lot of money went into the bike. A lot more went in this winter after I blew the motor last summer. My 400 is now a 426 after a new crank, rod, piston, cylinder and cylinder head.

rockieman,

Where did you get the yellow tank? Bike looks awesome! I can see the $$$$ you put into it, lots of very nice details that come together nicely.

Motone82, you have got a great looking bike there, you also have the best looking pipe for sure!!!!! I got one on my bike too!

I also got the MX rear guard but I run the Acerbis LED tail light extention. I like the rear indicators, my mate runs those on his bike, I don't have any on mine though.

I love the black rims mate! looks sensational! Did you lace those yourself? My fromt rim already has a dint in it, It might be time for me to change!

Yellow tank came from IMS, when I bought the seat tank from IMS, they had one more yellow tank which I lucky to get. As you can see the yellow matches up perfectly with the yellow plastic from One Industries. Seat/tank was 300 clams from IMS. Yellow plastic from One was right in line with the "other" aftermarket plastic guys.
