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.

Matt, you still looking for a mirror with handlebar mount? I found this in the vendors thread:

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.

The Trakmaster fronts are sucky, IMHO, mediocre offroad and not great on the pavement either...dumb design for a front tire I think. The MT21 is a great front tire. Expensive, but excellent offroad.

If you can still find them, or if they're importing them anymore the Cheng Shin c755 fronts are great tires, and stupid cheap. They last, they're good all around...but they stopped coming in but were supposed to start arriving again.

kids/womens riding gear

looks like I'll be back to riding in a few weeks, this time I'll finally have a bike the kids can ride with me on. but, not without the proper gear.
so, any suggestions on where i can find reasonably priced street gear for the younguns?
I don't want to invest to much, as I'm sure it will be a yearly purchase, but also want it to be a bit better than just decoration.
i guess womens gear would be more appropriate for my daughter. she may only be 12, but she's 5'7" or so...

I took my 10 yr old to a local store two months ago and a men's large helmet fit on his head. Couldn't find a jacket for him, even the men's & women's XS was too big for him. There is a distinct lack of mesh & textile jackets for kids. However, check out dirt bike & ATV protective gear; that line of gear seem to have a bunch of kids stuff, more than any other type.
Moral of the experience: for stuff that has to fit, go to a local store. For stuff that should mostly fit, check online.
