Too Much.....

Tyres for sure... look at those things way too much tread=way too much grip. Those sort of surfaces call for slicks....might need a qualifying compound though.

thanks. just cleaned the bike. did about 150 miles on Friday in TN, NC and GA.

i prefer the low fender for looks for sure. the whole mud locking up the front wheel thing is always in the back of my mind but i typically save the really nasty mud for my CR500.

Im going to space mine up to give it more clearance. And wont have a crossover cable to deal with either

yeah i suspect that if you rig it up to easily break away then that would be the ideal solution. so far i havent encountered a scenario that has caused me any problems but that first time will suck
