Lou Ferrigno was and is stone deaf. His acting chops weren't a whole lot better than the CG. Besides, how much talent do you need to scowl and yell all the time?

You sound like the salesman from True Lies.

Ask a pro wrestler. I'm just saying Lou looked more the part than the CG image in the movie.

I'm thinking saturday afternoon for the bike show w/ kids in tow.
No shows include KTM, BMW, Husaberg, Husqvarna & Aprilia – that sort of sucks
Still, I wouldn't mind checking out helmet vendors and Schuberth has a booth...

In a way I can't disagree, since the Incredible Hulk was 300 pounds of solid muscle. I didn't like the size increase in the movies.

I had a meeting today in Columbus so afterwards I stopped at the pony and picked up some stuff. I have decided to give the shinkos a try. It was a very stressful decision since I have ran TrakMasters pretty much exclusively. These tires look like they will suck in any offroad type of riding. I didnt do much muddy off road last year so I think the tread life characteristics will out weigh the traction loss offroad.

The 244 Shinkos, if that's what you got, are fine offroad until it's wet...they fill up quick. But on anything dry they're fine.

244's are what I got. I hope they don't fill up with pebbles easy. I had that loud clicking going down the road. Reminds me of a dog that needs his nails trimmed.

Whitey - The 244s are good tires, but (aside from the mud problem) the rear will chunk knobs if you run it hard at low pressure when the tires are new.

Good info, thanks I will watch for that. I tend to like my wheelies and hope this tire can handle my fat ass and the arm ripping torque of the KLR.

I'm going up Saturday morning just to do that. And check out some of the potential aftermarket farkles to help with the decision-making process.

Also to look at the Tiger 800s. Not getting one but I like the looks.
