The front wheel resembled a decagon so it was replaced with a rounder version from Warp 9. This is a 1.8 in wide rim vs the stock 2.2 in item. Theoretically much tougher. Also, a new 606 replaced the howling TKC80...



And, since the 908 had become a slick, a new Motosteel Teraflex was installed...



I read every tire thread on this forum. There was absolute consistance: no one agreed on anything. So, my conclusion was...pay your money & take your chance.

It will be interesting to see how the T'flex does. These knobs are .76 in high & quite long. Will they stay attached on a 90+ HP BADB? At least it is 1/2 the price of a 908 and they are quieter on pavement that the previous combo. As always, this is a test...

PS: I have a plow on order.
With 908s costing more then an expensive hooker I'll be interested in what you think of it.

So to speak. They got the DID rim from Buchanans & anodized it here, laced it on. Nice work, nice wheel. The wheel & tire all balanced in within 1/2 oz. I think they have long term plans to fab their own rims but they are not there yet. Kevin says he has been running this same rime for some time on his BADBs & they seem to stand up better than anything else.

So far, so good...

You apparently know more about hookers than I but I will keep you posted.

Eh? BADB Acronym or whatever

I googled BADB and the only google hits were Utards and ADVRider regional forums proving you guys are making up this shit up. BADB sounds like 'Bad Boy' or 'Bad Bike' but either seems fitting considering all the lewd and crass postings and
orange parts namely KTM spread all over this forum. 'Bad' can mean 'good' like we learned from the gangster rappers of past so don't get bent. Pretty soon the Utard thread will have its' own bike gang ebonic is what I am predicting and you're all criminals anyway! Happy Mothers Day brothas

face piles of miles w/ smiles...

Ryman and Pluric met me at Bryce Canyon after I was released from my obligations there and we rode to Powell and camped out, then up to Escalante, Boulder, Factory Butte, Goblin Valley, Swell, slab home... here's a few teasers, but they're mobile phone pics and you'll want to hold out for the ones Pluric shot on his nice camera!

Here's the Super Yammer entering the San Raf.


...and Ryman digging L. Collett. (funniest thing... there was this super hot chick pole dancing on a tree, and you notice a bit of her ass in the upper left of this pic. Pretty hot huh?)


more later, I gotta go kiss my Momma. We're BBQ-ing chicken and we have a large family...

What a fun weekend!!!

When life gives you hail,



Ryan makes wheelies...



We hit a black cloud hail storm just getting onto twisty 12. I stopped
to get a face mask and Ryan had to play on the rain. Oh and in the sun too.

Thanks for the ride K and P.
I forgot my camera so I'll just entertain with my clean brand of wit and humor as soon as P-dog starts giving up the cool pics. Sick ass wash riding today Kev!

Walking through Costco this morning buying stuff for a mothers day lunch I was thinking how much I'd rather be staring at your back tire. Glad you got out.
