I am down for whatever. Camping in the middle of a snow storm sounds good to me. I just need to know dates to request off.

Tires

Im running a shinko sr244 on the front of the t-dub and its looks almost new with 3,000 miles on it. Tpar has a kenda 270 on his and its almost the same tire. The tw's are lightweight bikes so im not sure how well they hold up under some power or heavier bikes. Its handles very good on the pavement on mine and decet off road. Here is a pic of mine on the front plus some Colorado scenary on my favorite trail trail/pass. I want to go back some day.

I'm guessing November 6th must be your birthday, since it doesn't fall on a weekend in 2012. If so, happy birthday, way early...

My wife's birthday is on the 2nd, so if this event were to occur on the weekend of the 3rd an 4th, I'd be out, but if it were to occur on the weekend of the 10th and 11th, I'd tentatively say I was in... Been wanting to try out my Big Agnes 0 degree sleeping bag in some colder weather, and that would give me a great excuse.

Just got a warm-n-safe heated liner in the mail today so it must be fate.

Sign me up. You ever get that tent Tim?

check out my new tire

I got a 98 KTM SX250 2 stroke, it rocks.
It has a 19" rear and I have a garage full of 18"s.
I scored a brand new Michelin Sand 4 for $30 on ebay.
Even did a free pickup in Michigan.
This will hook up well on sandy Michigan trails and hillclimbs.
The tread looks COOL and thats what its all about


demo vid here:http://youtu.be/L6SYDYB1hWI

Cool tire, Doug. Looks like something between a knobby and a paddle. Be interesting to see what she does in different terrains.

The reality is 80/20 or 90/10 street biased "dual sport" tires, especially for riding here in Indiana (assuming that you actually want to go riding someplace other than the autobahn or down to the local Starbucks) is an invitation to get yourself hurt and tear up your expensive motorcycle. Woodsrat's Undeniable Tire Truth #1 says that the heavier the bike is the more traction you need to maintain control when you take your 400-550 lb. bike anywhere vaguely resembling an off-road section. A couple hundred feet down a muddy section and this Undeniable Truth will be painfully driven home. The perfectly groomed dirt roads you see in the ads and brochures made up of what appears to be finely ground top soil don't exist in the real world. These tires are the biggest lie ever perpetuated upon motorcyclists.

If you ride ten thousand miles a year and figure a tenth of it will be spent off the road you'd better be spooning on a set of knobby tires to ride those thousand miles. You can ride any kind of tire down a paved road but when things get muddy you'd better have a set of real knobbies mounted up--unless, of course, you enjoy spending your time picking yourself up off the ground and doing the clean-and-jerk with your motorcycle...
I've decided to just get a new front exp since my rear is new as of 1000 miles ago (damn nail in michigan). I have about a 2500 mile road trip in September which will be all pavement. I'll work on a dre 350 when i get back for my off road stuff and gravel rides.

Going to ride to Madison Thursday evening with The Big Lebowski after work to grab some dinner.

Recommendations for a place to eat?

Considering the Broadway Hotel and Tavern or the Madison Lighthouse Restaurant, but if someone has a great suggestion based on recent knowledge or experience, I'm all ears...
