Mquiroz' BRP

Post  mquiroz on Tue Aug 04, 2009 8:01 am

Hello from Colorado. I'm new to the site but thought I would add a pic or two of my Pig. She damned near killed me about a year ago as I got off of her at about 60mph. Ended up with a broken collar bone, broken elbow, and broken left middle finger. Still have permanent numbness in the right wrist from the crash, but I manage. The bike didn't fair well either. She started life looking like this..

And after the crash...ended up looking like this with just some of the new parts I had ordered just the day before the crash happened

And as she sits currently in the garage....

Replaced the sub frame as it looked like the letter "S"
Fluidyne rads
Scotts dampner
Ricky Stator 200W stator
IMS 4+ gallon tank
Swapped out the original 2005 seat for a 2000 one
Pro Circuit T4 complete exhuast
New plastics
Aluminum skid plate
Still to be added, BD E-start, red braided cables, various graphics.
One last pic of me on the beast on part of a trail called Crankcase Alley as you can see why. This was my first outing on her after buying. Nothing fancy, but damn it was a lot of fun.


Anyway that's about it. Thanks, "Q"

very sweet looking bike, glad you made it out of the wreck o.k.

What is your lighting setup? And also, how do you like the stabilizer? I have one on my full time dirt bike but dont know if this bike needs it or not.

My lighting is the BD offering currently. Looks like the stock set up but handles a bit more juice. Going to swap that out for a single 8" round light soon though. Steering stab is great. I suppose I don't really need it for the type of riding I do (mountain trails) as I don't really move all that fast, but it is comforting to know its there. I grew up riding/racing desert and would have loved to have had one at that time, but now in my 40's I'm content to just putt-putt through the mountains with an occassional blast down a logging road for fun. Thanks for the kudos. "Q" USA
