I was kinda surprised the trooper didn't give us tickets when YOU LEAD THEM to us at the gas station.

Heidenau K60 Scout 130/80-17 rear tire

Should have tried these instead of the Karoo's.
I hope you added them to your basket. You're still gonna need something before "late July or August" when these will be shipped, but at least get on the list.

My F800 takes a 90/90-21 on the front and those have been available without problems.. hell, if I would have run a 140 width rear I would have gotten them a long time ago.

I didn't realize just how "bad" the tread pattern was on those Scorpions... I had to go back and dig up a picture, thinking for sure they changed the name/pattern...



nope... damn.... Ignore what I said... you definitely don't want those... too bad those MT90's don't come in a 17" - they look like a nice experiment...

WooHoo!! thelawnguy felt so bad about not inviting his own uncle to his boat christening party , he's gonna loan me his Adventure. He says he's got 500 miles of tire left. lol. Yeah, right.

Thinking of meeting those Bastrop riders at that Mexican joint they are headed to in Elgin. Anyone wanna go? I know James doesn't. He was invited to the boat party.

Big giant new boat never been out of the dock. 30+ winds. 3 foot whitecaps on Lake Waco. I see some youtube possibilities.

I used to live by a lake. It was always fun to go down to the boat ramp in spring or on major holidays and watch people try to launch and recover their boat. Boat shops make a lot of money fixing the damage done by people who barely have a clue. Especially with a big wind.

Have fun and see if you can burn off those 500 miles in 200...

Sorry you guys didn't find the GNC yesterday. I was there Friday and there were some horseshoes on a steel post by the pits near the basketball court/pavilion. Feel free to throw a game.

I wish I'd been in town. Sounds like you guys had a good time without me.

Well, I know what nephew one will be getting for Christmas this year. Spectacles. Blind as a bat, I'd say. His rear tire looks worse than the Karoo on KilLeR. uhhhh....no, thanks.


I'll just try to bust my ass on the ranch today. It'll be a shorter walk home.

I thought he was running Karoos?

On the sponsor thing you mentioned yesterday, I tried last year and got absolutely no-where. Apparently its not my forte'.

On the tire discussion, I think I'm going to try some mofos, huh, mefos, whatever. I guess I'll know after I try them which is the correct name.

He was running the Saharas. He was interested in the Karoo but has not run them. I run one set on my GSA long ago and killed it faster than a TKC.

As to sponsors, well we need Taryn to go to work for us

She did mention she was only working at the LC, so Monday's - Thursday afternoons she could work. What she didn't say is that she wanted to work those days.
