    Nate's first IBA Ride.

    Back in September of 2021 I attended the Ride around Texas event put on By Tim Masterson and the IBA. In talking to Tim we were discussing a new ride series that he's been working on putting together called the Ride Around series. Like the RAT he would like to document rides around the perimeter...

    Natchez Trace 1000

    The bike is a 2007 yamaha xt225. Over the winter I've outfitted/ purpose built the bike just for this ride. I must say that most everything was built with things I've just collected or had laying around or have fabricated. Mods include: Windscreen/ fly screen from a zrx1200 that just happend...

    Natchez Trace 1000

    Back in November I got bored and the thought of doing a small displacement SS1K popped in my head. I couldn't shake it as it was very intriguing to me. Then while out in my garage I looked over and had an AhHa moment. There before me sat my wife's 2007 XT225... perfect!So I have an available...

    Aux tank wanted.

    There's a gent on the IBA forums looking for a Maple Farkels style aux tank for his gen 3 FJR. He's running in the up coming IBR and some smaller rallies leading up to the Big Dance. Anyone have any leads out on one for Sale that I could pass along to him?

    Alex light brackets.

    I've been looking for a set of these above the mirror light brackets (Alex brackets)for about 2 years now. I've contacted real-time industries several times with no reply. Does anyone have an extra set floating around they'd be willing to part with? Don't suggest the under the mirror brackets...

    2018 FJR AUX Tank Plumbing

    Just ran a BBG last week with this plumbing set up worked great! As far as the Gen1 I don't know. I'm assuming if the vent lines are the same then there wouldn't be any reason it wouldn't.

    Ride planning/ Help needed

    Good luck Tony!  I too think the car tire is the way to go for this ride. For IBA type riding where you're on the interstate blowing away the miles it's the way to go. By time you get to Sioux Falls for your start point you'll be comfortable with the CT.
