She did really well for her first off road ride. We took in slow and kept feet down thru mud puddles and it all went without a hitch. Next step, find Lisa a nice DS bike. She seems fond of the idea of a KTM690 but I think she'd be better on something much lighter.


Let the WR250 supporters begin.

After the videos of you riding she'd probably be scared.

We'll see. I think I need to get her on some more easy offroad stuff in dry weather for her to really see how much fun it can be.

I've very good luck with the dynabeads. I've got a Marc Parnes balancer setup, but I think I get a smoother ride with the dynabeads. Smoother at 140+mph on my FZ1.
I've got them in most of my bikes.

Hey! Those are proof she shouldn't be scared! I wreck and get right back up. Good gear and it doesn't hurt (usually)

Tried them once on a truck and had them taken out after a day. My personal theory is that they don't work in aluminum rims but have been thinking of trying them on a bike since I haven't been balancing my tires.

I just let the air out, lay the wheel on the garage floor and stand on it. Seems to work for me.

Looks like you guys had a good time....apparently, I'm not the only person in Morrow county who hoards tires until the county sponsored disposal day....we waited an hour in line doing that, then my in laws called me to help wrestle tractor tires out of their barn, then we had to get some gutter parts, then I decided to cut my lawn real quick when we got back and the idler pulleys on my mower deck spit the bearings out...so yeah, I should have just gotten on a motorcycle at 8 am instead....

At least it broke at home and not out at a job. Bike tires go in my dumpster at work.
