Just a few long awaited tweaks to the RTS for 2009.

Original GT flip-flop stem, rear canti rocker and a mint set of Deore LX canti's.

Still undecided about the tyres, so may change these before MM09 for some amberwall's.

Quick tyre change.

Big improvement I think, gives it a more rugged and used look.

Keep thinking about it, as I said at the start of this thread. Trouble is I havent any spare at the moment as the Zaskar got my last pair, hence putting the blackwalls of it on this.

I may actually ride this tomorrow......as I havent been on it since October :shock: :oops:
