Is this a can of Slime after a flat or are you trying some sort of tubeless set up? I'm assuming tubeless since I don't see one

It looks like you're using the "plain" Slime without the black bits in it. From what I've read, the "ATV Slime" is better at stopping bigger holes.

There's also lots of talk in mountain bike forums about "ghetto tubeless" and "Wade's Secret Sauce". Basically, a mixture of latex mold builder, propylene glycol (rv antifreeze), glitter (particles to help seal bigger holes) and plain Slime.

If this helps, great! If not, ignore

We knew there was supposed to be some rain or snow, and we for sure knew it would be cold. I think there was about 5 or 6 inches of snow, which was a bit more than we thought we would have, but no big deal, it did make the ride out more interesting.

After close to a month in dry dock, Moby made it out for a cold spin. ABS switch, heated grips, cannisterectomy, larger kick stand foot, nerf bars, saddlebags and throttle lock all passed the sea trial with flying colors.

Went for a rip. Snowy side roads and some ice on mains but a lot of gravel. Still nice to get out and bang through the gears though.

May have to swap out the Mefo/Heidenau combo and throw the 908/Karoo set on until summer.

The first you said.
It's a standard ABS model raised to 2006 S height (245mm).

Oh, and I'm not married

Blur, thanks, I designed 'em and had a local shop in Calgary cut and install after my graphic designer sister helped with scale and finish. Did a good job. The shop is Ignition. Cheers.

Actually it has been 4 months I'm riding KTM. When you driving at dark night especially mountain it was very hard to see in front of you easily.

Then we decided to use micro de for the auxiliary fog aim lights and FF50 for the visibility & to be able to see the road clearly.

as you noticed that KTM has relatively small battery when you compare with 1200GSA, after start the engine I have turned on fog lights first, the on the FF50 to keep my battery alive.

The best is FF50 is very sufficient and it is actually working. But if you say I would like to buy something tremendous I would definitely recommend Comet 200.

Cheers.
