I understand now. Thanks for the explanation and it makes sense.

Spring

Since spring is here it is time to tune up the BADB. Here is the start...



The front wheel resembled a decagon so it was replaced with a rounder version from Warp 9. This is a 1.8 in wide rim vs the stock 2.2 in item. Theoretically much tougher. Also, a new 606 replaced the howling TKC80...



And, since the 908 had become a slick, a new Motosteel Teraflex was installed...



I read every tire thread on this forum. There was absolute consistance: no one agreed on anything. So, my conclusion was...pay your money & take your chance.

It will be interesting to see how the T'flex does. These knobs are .76 in high & quite long. Will they stay attached on a 90+ HP BADB? At least it is 1/2 the price of a 908 and they are quieter on pavement that the previous combo. As always, this is a test...

PS: I have a plow on order.

Is Warp 9 making wheels for BADBs now?

With 908s costing more then an expensive hooker I'll be interested in what you think of it.

So to speak. They got the DID rim from Buchanans & anodized it here, laced it on. Nice work, nice wheel. The wheel & tire all balanced in within 1/2 oz. I think they have long term plans to fab their own rims but they are not there yet. Kevin says he has been running this same rime for some time on his BADBs & they seem to stand up better than anything else.

So far, so good...

Eh? BADB Acronym or whatever

I googled BADB and the only google hits were Utards and ADVRider regional forums proving you guys are making up this shit up. BADB sounds like 'Bad Boy' or 'Bad Bike' but either seems fitting considering all the lewd and crass postings and
orange parts namely KTM spread all over this forum. 'Bad' can mean 'good' like we learned from the gangster rappers of past so don't get bent. Pretty soon the Utard thread will have its' own bike gang ebonic is what I am predicting and you're all criminals anyway! Happy Mothers Day brothas
