Look like the Heidenau KT60 Scouts. Great choice MarshTiger, let's put them to work this weekend. Just sent you an email. I'm seriously considering staying with the Conti TKC for front, but I've got my eyes on that Scout for the rear. Too bad the other sizes don't get that center rib the 150/70-17 has.

K60 is correct Sir! Although the front is a k60 and not a scout. The "scout" front is a little less aggressive. The TKC/K60 combo is very popular too. I can't wait to get 'em dirty!

Where did you find them? I got the alert from Revzilla this AM, and when I tried to order the 150/70-17 at 10:50, they were out of stock AGAIN. Price???

Here it is from a top-rated eBay Seller in Wisconsin. More $ than Revzilla, though.

Mine came from Black Dog Cycle Works. Nice people, they really took care of me! They don't stock them, drop shipped form the distributor. Shipped quick though, ordered on Sunday, and they arrived on the next Tuesday.

We haven't gotten our first shipment yet. Should be anyday though. I can't wait they look excellent. I've only seen one set in person. They didn't look like yours though.

Thanks to Clint for showing us around the Ho-Cat today. Put just short of 300 miles on the XR.

thanks, but we really need Marsh Tiger to clarify where I lead us astray from the REAL HoCat... but it was fun working around that gate eh? By the way Bart, you've got "point" this Sunday in Francis Marion.

Starting a thread for our weekend rides

And just like that a plan was hatched. And I volunteered to lead it...





I've been working on some sort of route for a few months now, maybe four or five. I had ridden all over the place looking for dirt roads. And had cataloged what I found. Then, one day, I found myself in possession of a GPS...



Scrolling through the software I realized that I could make one hell of a duel sport loop with the roads I had found. I finished it the night before the ride...


...and I SWEAR I really believed that it was only 40 or maybe 50% dirt.
