And lastly, here is the unit itself.  Evidently I like my bars too far forward to mount it in front, so I mounted it behind the bars.  I actually like it there, because it is protected from flying debris (looking right at you Danger  grin).  One of the great improvements over the last generation (besides the cool new black instead of silver body) is the new screen that allows you to see coolant temperature and the tach bar.  Before you could get the tach bar and the air temperature, or the speed as a bar and the coolant temperature.  Definitely more useful in this generation.

Tomorrow I am going to try to do some artful denting of the pipe to clear the tire, and setting official sag.  Then it's hurry up and wait on decent weather and Danger to be available.

A really cool thing happened on Tuesday on Instagram.  I post a few pictures of my bikes on the site for Two Stroke Tuesday, and this week I posted some pictures of Al (new nickname Al, short for Aluminum) from this weekend, including the muddy picture.  The pictures got picked up by Boyesen Factory Racing, and three other Instagram only accounts.  The four listing have over 18,000 likes, and one of them was trending as a top result for KX250 and KX250F searches.  I was honored to see my bike on other feeds, and it's was very cool to see so many people liked it.  Anyway, here are the searches with my bike in the top results (near the top).

I forget to post this, but this is a picture of the guy who modified my frame’s other job. He takes military surplus trucks and makes them into off road pumper trucks.  shocked. He fabs all the tanks and side pieces from sheet aluminum, and makes all the mounts for the pumps and winches. It’s hard to represent the scale of these dudes. The headlights hit me in the chest, and I’m 6’1”. He does all of this in a home two car garage and an awning where the trucks sit while he builds all the tanks and bits.  He even paints and stripes them.
