I used duct tape on the supermoto cause the rim was so wide

After 5 years on the Big Orange Pig,
I'm just good enough to be kinda fast.
NOT good enough to actually be good

Sharp dirty road rocks and a 500lb bike loaded with 100lbs of camping fun and either the TKC80 or Dunlop 606, and I'd get pinch flats from smacking those baby heads.

Can't slow down now,
...so I just bought stiffer sidewall 908 front tire.
No pinch flats yet on the current 908 front.

The 908 rear ran too hot with ultra heavy duty tubes,
and would basically melt any patches....


I have pulled the tires clean off to check them, and the rim strips.

Yeah, except two years ago while running the OBCDR,
I bent the front rim so hard on a root, that there was no way for it to hold air without that tube.

I bobbled and bounced when riding slow on pavement, but I rode her home, and for the next 2k miles, until I bought a new Woody's setup.
..... A tubless (Tubliss) setup would have really screwed up that trip

As much as I love doing wheelies, I think I am going to quit. After doing that same thing on the CR500, I couldn't imagine doing that on my F800!
