    I don't have all the mods installed in this photo, like the camo seat cover, but you get the idea....



    Great looking bike. I normally don't care for for camo, but man, does that pattern ever blend in with the terrain. Very purposeful bike and looks good at the same time.

    Oh yeah what size is your 241?

    Those are some wild looking footpegs!

    Where did you get them from, the Wizard of Oz?

    I found them where? Where else....China! They are super heavy duty/thick. Needed to gently grind the insert, drill hole for left side spring and remove/grind off a small piece of aluminum in back to get full movement/retraction. Now after several dirt rides they move freely.

    My other ones got bent and then very bent in Moab...

    Thanks. I'll have to take new photos with the camo seat cover. Really hides the bike even more.
    The tire size is 4.00x18

    Great looking bike but I wouldn't recommend it in traffic. My wifes big gray van can't be seen in the middle of the street with the headlights on. We still have some wooded areas around and I'm sure you wouldn't be seen. That is cool for off road and trails though. I have ridden right up on a buck with mine and it isn't camo'd. I bet you can really sneak up on a deer now.
