Daaaang!  That looks stout!  Now, all you need is the Touratech side racks and your whole bike with be wrapped in a cage! ;D  I can't wait to see it installed.  Be sure to do a write up.

I was eye-ballin' that too! Like RS said, looks beefy and it would help with the occasional dirt nap. Keep us posted!

You know what's gay? Watching same-sex stag films.  Oh yeah, and rollerblading.

Watching all your coolant leak out of your **** radiator isn't technically gay, but it definitely sucks.

That protection is BUTCH!  I wish I had it.  I'm wondering how much it weighs?

Dane, when you get it, could you pop it onto the bathroom scale for us?

Damn, that's a lot of metal to put on the bike! I'm wondering where you're riding if you feel you need that much cage?
I only use my bike for Baja style terrain, ride it like a motorcrosser, and have simple rad protection and bash plate and the adv spec case guards. The only thing I've damaged in 4 years is the case guard and front rim after going off a 12 foot cliff that wasn't marked on a course Nav sheet.
Nice kit, but overkill I think, even for a Dakar style rally.

So what is the verdict on the Rumbux? I'm particularly interested in the weight.

Dane decided he wasn't  gay.....He couldn't get the company to ship it , so he cancelled the order.

I couldn't find the item on their website.  It's surprising that ktmtwins is selling something that the manufacturer hasn't announced.
