Twisted Throttle XR650L Bike Build, Patrick Trahan: episode 1

Posted on December 1, 2010 by TwistedThrottle.com There have been 0 comments

Watch as Twisted Throttle builds in a series of mini episodes chronicling the design and build process to transform this bike into a robust desert rider.
Patrick's fundraising goal is to raise $25,000 for the Children's Wish Foundation. You can contribute by visiting him at the Honda Canada booth in the Canadian MMIC motorcycle shows this winter, or by visiting his website at www.rideafrica4wishes.com. Donations are $1 per kilometer of his 25,000 km journey.

Patrick Trahan has called upon Twisted Throttle, an adventure touring outfitter based in Rhode Island, to prepare his Honda XR650L for extreme long-distance desert travel. Custom bike modifications by Twisted Throttle will include a reinforced rear subframe, Trax hard luggage system, LED headlights, auxiliary fuel tanks, a solar-powered charging array for navigation, film, communications equipment, and more.

Stay current with the custom bike build and Patrick's progress by visiting the Twisted Garage video blog at Twisted Throttle's YouTube page.




Episode 2: Design underway!

On the Road Again: We have to halt fabrication for a while to produce the final components and allow Patrick to promote the charitable nature of his ride. It is for the kids don't forget!
