Most of the time I store unmounted tires with pieces of 2x4's in them but not this one!!.It's Seattle,storing in the sun isn't a option most of the time!!.hehe

Today I got the NEW hack tire mounted,what took me 4+ hours last weekend ( and it never seated) took me 15 minutes today!!.I also fabed up a new front fender,I will clean it up tomorrow and roll on some bedliner,I also made up a new rear turn signal on the car.The rig is basically ready to go but I would like to do a few more things.

Nice. That's the kind of fix I'd have done, too (still might!) :P

I got the front fender done today,I left it alittle high for a knobby in the future.I might drill 4 more holes so the fender can sit lower for street tires.

Do your chair passengers have any trouble getting in and out with the shock mount in the way like that?

Could they be laid down? Shorter shocks?

We have alot of crowned roads here ( lots of rain ) this bar helps me
Keep it straight without wearing out my arm.I used it on my Vstrom rig on 80 mile straight crowned road and it worked great..

Looks like they mount up well and look good. I see that they may wear quickly in gravel, but I would be riding less than 5% gravel on my bike.
Got a pair of 712's delivered from Bike Bandit last week. They arrived the same day that I got back into town, along with a pair of replacement angled valve stems. Sooooo...Friday I levered on the rear tire and it went on quickly. Nice tire and I put about 30 miles on it. Need to put the front on next when I get back to town again.

Thanks for the referral.
