Rode 250 kms through forest see :GTR Nelson ride (OZ)
Ummm....There's abundant advice elsewhere to locktite those bolts, as they tend to back out and the slider jams in the countershaft sprocket.

FWIW...

Installed my Black Dog rack. Pretty nice piece of equipment. Now I need to figure out the next step for luggage. Or if I should go with the winch/winch mount.

Or go with some Giant Loop stuff and do both. I just got the big bag and it's friggin' nice. My Gobi's will stay in the garage a lot more, I fear.

That's the way I was leaning. That was why I held out so long on the rack but it appears to be very compatible with the GL bags.

Got a new rear tire, the MITAS E-07



Like this tire very much, from road to off road, it makes the ADV handle very well.



But i was a little agressive on off road use, and it shows



But no problem, still is a very good choice.
I had previously a Heidenau K60 Scout and for me the MITAS is much better

Same thing happened to me 2 days ago, ended up using a c-clamp. I would have had to try a little harder if it happened out on the trail.

Get a spray bottle with soapy water and spray liberally along the bead and work it with a lever. It'll pop off. Much easier to dismount the tire when the bead is wet and slippery.

Trust me, I was at home I have a bottle of soapy water, it was a plain old beeatch ! With me standing on the peg pulling the bike over I finally broke one side....then after 20 minutes of frustration I finally got the other
I think it would have been easier to ride around with no air for 10-15 miles because my roadside repairs have been pretty easy

Let me ask about tubes sizes....I have an MSR 120/100-18 HD and a Fly 4.50-5.10 -18 HD plus what I took out a Kings 4.00-4.50 - 18.....I know the rim is 4.25" which is roughly 110mm...the MSR is new and so is the Kings....I want to use the MSR because I have had good luck with those....are tubes like Oil & Tire discussions? if so, lets stick to what is the correct size for my precious

I lent it to a trusted friend, because I will be leaving the country for a couple of years and it just didn't seem like it was worth it to take it where we were going from a registration and customs standpoint. So, it's in good hands:

This ^^

I have been able to break the bead on k60s, 908s and stock Scorpions with a little soapy water and 3 tire irons.
