Buell Ulysses "Off-Asphalt"

Hi,

I am currently enjoying the Ulysses on and "off asphalt roads" and have attached a few photos of a recent 520 km ride in the UAE with a buddy.

Please add some photos of your own Ulysses "off-asphalt" experience and modifications you have made.

Regards

Looks like great fun. Hey what tyres are those (in particular the front)? I'd be looking for something to use on my supermoto... Didn't know there were any suitable knobs for 17"...

Dubai off pavement looks good too! Looks like your bike was a bit sleepy on this day! Oh, and that's not a real tiger skin in the background, is it?

I'd like to mount a 120/90–17 on the front of my Uly but as far as I can tell, this size isn't available in the US. Has anyone been able to locate a TKC 120/90–17 in the US?

If not, does anyone know where I can buy one in Cologne, Germany? I'm in Cologne frequently.

TIA.

Tipsy

Those are great pictures

Ok so you have the two Ulys side by side, one with knobbies and one with stock. How much of a differance do the knobs make on this bike.

I'ts still going to be a heavy pig, but I'm curious if it could handle a slightly muddy track.

I haven't been able to find that size in the states either... But I did notice that you can get a 120/90-17 MT-21. Maybe that paired with the 150 rear TKC would work?

When I interpret this side http://www.conti-online.com/generato...tkc_80_en.html correct, it is possible to get it. So you have to know some body in cologne. I sure it is possible to order this tyre in germany.

Sorry, I would do this for you, but I'm always on job travel. But I know, they are ADVRiders in Cologne. Go to the german part of the forum.

Is that a rear on the front? How does it handle on pavement? I'm trying to find something a little more knobby for my 650R with good wet and dry traction on pavement as well. I was considering the MT60 Corsa's but hear they are expensive and don't last long at all.

You have heard correctly. The MT60's are a great tire, with short tread life. It is a supermoto compound in the Uly sizes, so long tread life is not to be expected.

The Avon Distanzias are also good tires with supermoto compound. However, the Distanzias last about twice as long as the MT-60's, and are not quite as expensive.

I just put a pair of the Scorpion Trails on the Uly. I will get back to ya on how they work.

snow / offroad?

The Uly needed 93 octane to replace the winter stabilizer. I think the pic's count.
