Not a trials tire, but I love the Heidenau K60 Scout on front. Metzler Tourance on the rear.

Question those threaded holes?

I mounted the brackets to the tube by drilling four holes for each bracket and i braced them on the inside for strength. after these pictures were taken i got home and my brackets were bending a little after my test ride with weight in the tube so i ended up wraping the tube with metal straps again from the hardware store and the tube is solid now. I'm happy with the end result and i think i will be able to make it work with the wolfman racks, i might just have
to redo my straps to give more of a gap near the frame. again,
What size are those threaded holes in the frame?

So-Cal Desert Washes After The Rains

I definitely found the limits of my semi worn K60's today! Mud, mud, then some sand, then more mud...

Took my little tigger for a ride up in Michaux State Forest PA on Monday. Had a great time on the dirt/gravel roads. No crash bars or bash plate yet so I stayed off some of the trails. She handled pretty good for street tires.

Saw this cat in Palomar San Diego County...

If a physical fact can produce a psychological state, a psychological state can produce a physical fact... The whole of creation is asleep within the deep of man and is awakened to objective existence by his subconscious assumptions.

Two tigers.
Out with the old, in with the new. Guess which one is the new one.

Oh, and my previous Tiger looked exactly like the bike in the next post up. An orange 1050. I miss that motor for sure.

Narrowly missed the mud-slid that closed Spanish Fork canyon on HWY 6. 1200 2-up miles down on the Tiger couldnt be happier, now im just
