Moral of the experience: for stuff that has to fit, go to a local store. For stuff that should mostly fit, check online.
Well, I just got home and dug out the big ole box of stuff that was too big for them I had gathered before I sold my last bike. Every bit of it is too small now.
And, like yours, I had my kids try on my helmet for the sizing of it, and it fit them both. I guess my little kids ain't so little anymore.

That said, I've got a whole pile of kids gear that will be hitting the kids gear thread in a bit.

I've used a pirelli mt-21 front but with a D606 rear. I have no complaints so far about it.

Thanks for the replys about a front tire. The cheng shin front in 21 inch seems sold out everywhere. I'll probably go with a mt-21. -mike

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...
My daughter has the HJC CY youth model helmet. Found one on fleabay very gently used pretty cheap. Great lid, small shell design so much better than the big adult helmets on a little noggin.

I'd hit The Pony for clearance jackets and pants - small sizes are a plenty in the closeout rack. We found a women's small Kilimanjaro jacket for my daughter for $39! Can't beat that.

Same with pants and boots.

Looks like Iron pony it is. I guess that means I need to stop by the ktm dealer and take a look at that leftover 950sm while I'm up that way, and go test ride my father in laws full dresser I've been talking about buying off of him as well.

I'm in Marietta and have the tools, but I think you're close to Dayton...

The IP is in the middle of a road construction/clusterflock/traffic nightmare. SR 3 is all messed up, don't go during prime time.

That`s why they make dual sport bikes....so you don`t have to wait in line.

No that's why they made 161 so you could avoid rt3.

The exit to SR 3 off 161 coming from the east is closed, so you can't just slide off and slip in the back via the parking lot. You have to at least cross 3 but that's not obvious until you are already in the grinder.

I always take 270 around to 161 and then come in from west bound exit. I feel your pain though and sr3 has been a pain for years, I am betting the construction is just making it a dream.

So... any decisions made about a Tar Hollow ride on Saturday yet? We've got quite a bit of rain here on Tuesday night but it was sunny and windy today and dried things out quite a bit more than I expected.

Trying to determine if I need to make the trip to KY for the dual sport or if I can just stay at home and ride with you guys.

Not sure what's up yet, but BigOhio sounds like he's planning to ride Saturday, I'm thinking of doing something Sunday. With all the rain I may just do a road ride down 41 and the surrounding area on the strom. Haven't been down there for a while and since everyone now knows Tar Hollow area now, well time for some research.

Saturday morning is shot for me now, I have to take my truck to get tires and that's the only time I can get the friend hookup.

As soaked as everything is, I think I'm going to avoid the real trails (I'm really not THAT fond of mud) and maybe go ride either the Coshocton area or the usual Danville/Morrow county roads.

I'm finally getting ahead on work (despite punching a hole in a piston on one of my mowers yesterday...) and will be needing some theraputic riding, I had to go bash some gravel tonight to stay sane.
