Re: Uralcamping ...

Kaliram: I like that table, too. What's it made of? I assume it folds flat over the rack crossmembers?

Re: New behind the seat rack

Re: Baja no pinch tool question

I got the same set of MotionPro bead-breaker / tire irons as RC20 - plus their rim protectors. I used them to swap the rear tubeless tire on my K100RS. This was my first-ever motorcycle tire change, and they worked great for breaking the bead and removing/reinstalling the tire
