Is this weekends ride Saturday or Sunday?
Saturday? Dunno, what and where works for everyone who wants to get out?

Looking at the weather Sunday will be cooler and allow for a day for things to dry out a little. Supposed to be rain from now thru Friday. So expect mud.

Have stuff going on Sunday so Saturday is best with me. Anyone ride the Wayne yet this year? Thinking about picking up a pass or maybe heading over to Perry on Saturday if the Tar Hollow ride is Sunday.

Aw man, if it rains the next few days Perry will be a disaster on Saturday. You don't want to be anywhere near there without a quad and winch.

I can also recommend the Double Take Mirrors also in the vendors section. Have a set on the 690 and just put one on the 450. Love them...

Oh yeah! Double Take Mirrors are awesome, but I was thinking he'd need the base still.... But no! Just needs a bar mount ram ball!

They also have bases for them if needed and very quick shipping. Ordered one with base for the 450 last Monday and had it in my hands in a couple of days! Now just need to get out and ride a little.

Hey figured I'd ask here for a more localised response: Anybody have any KLR Doohickie tools and know-how? I'm in the market for buying one and I wanted to see if I can save a few bucks sans the rotor wrench.

MT 21 front on a wrr

Have any of you other wrr owners used a pirelli mt-21 on the front in conjuction with a rear trakmaster? I haven't used a trakmaster on the front and am hesitant since the aggressive "side knobs" tend to "walk" outward in turns on the rear, especially once the centers are worn down. Any ideas for another agressive yet still asphalt-worthy front for a smalll dual sport? Thanks- Mike

Other then the tread cupping I had great luck with the trakmaster front. I could get 1 front for every 2 rears. I tried a Pirelli Scorpion on once and it wore really fast and cupped badly.

MT21 is good off road but soft, so it will cup rapidly. Had one on the klr650.

I have Trakmaster II on both wheels of my xt225.
I don't remember the mileage on the front tire, but it's still in the first 1/3rd of its life. The rear tire is only just starting to wear off those "new tire nubs".
They work great.
