Still waiting to see if Buzz or Orange Crush are headed to BW Sunday.
If that's where your headed, might see you there.
You want BZ not Buzz (offically Buzztail of Tally fame). But fear not. Ride with Barney and Dirtwoman in the morning and all will become clear... you have an adventure in store...

Wouldn't miss it for anything! Been 23 months since I took it for a decent ride.
This evening fashioning a licence plate holder, attaching fork protectors, and mending a leak in the fuel crossover line (must have been severed in the accident) so the left tank can take part.
Thanks for getting me headed the right direction Vico1.

Apperson is all apeshit over some new "aggressive dirt" tire with a chevy bowtie pattern for the center knob.
I will ask in tomorrow and pass along type.

That would be a 908 Rally Raid... Can't see me dropping two bills on a rear knob.

Speaking of Street rides I have quest in town from Denver Co. "Running away from the fires" I am leading the 3 of them and a couple of other non ADV friends on a ride around Baker and BW Sunday. We are leaving my house at 0700 headed to Mickeys in Baker for breakfast. There will be 4 Harleys and a Vulcan chasing my Gold Wing, I am sure it will be a little more conservative ride than Barny will be doing with Kip and Dirtwoman. All are welcome to join if you like hope to heave Mickeys about 0845-0900.

I have read a whole lot of good things about those tires from various members on long trips through South America, north to AK, etc. Commonly paired with a Dunlop 606 front which I just put on mine. Once my rear tire is shot I'm set on the D908. They say it lasts almost long enough to pay for the premium, as well as having decent road manners... many positive traits as I recall.

Sanjoh likes the 908 he has on the dirt ninja, but a 120 trak master would hook much better off road... the D606 rear on it now isn't worth a crap in the dirt IMHO. Not real worried about life of the tire as much as traction. The side lugs on it seem small and not as grabby as I'd like.. Maybe I'll try one, and see.
I'm running a Scorpion Pro front now and would like a tire that compares to it.
The 606 rear does not hook in turns- we ride a bunch of curvy dirt roads in the ANF, and the 606 needs to be stepped out to stay predictable.

Try a Michelin T-63 rear.

Why, just recently on a trip out west on a KiLleR, there was about 2500 miles put on a set of T-63s through all types of terrain and they performed admirably. They probably had between 6-800 miles on them when the trip started so it looks like they would at least last 1500 miles on a 690.

I'm about 750 miles into a set of TKC 80 s and am liking them. Plenty enough off road traction for me (since I'm slow) and much less noise on road than the MT21s I had from factory. Lots of on road grip too.

Get you a terra flex and call it good. I can't think of a better tire for grip. You only need like 8lbs of air.

1500 is like 25 fuel stops... that may work
