Mine was delivered today!
Thanks 3 legs.
Thanks Ben at Antique tyres.
Sure looks more aggressive than the road tyre on it at the moment.

Now - trip planning....

Excellent Ray. Give us a review as soon as you can. I won't be trying mine until the OCR. Hopefully will have mine early next week.

mine too

Mine's arrived, but I missed delivery 'cause I was at work, so they are dropping it off again today. Pity I won't be using it. I need to see how long the new Heidenau rear goes first, and then may do a rear wheel conversion if it's needed. Still not sure about that. I hope someone comes up with a decent wheel and adapter here in Aus, otherwise I'll buy from overseas.

Maybe you could follow what LeighSA is doing?

Some pic, Leigh. Or do I have to come over to do that for you?
You know - you make the story, I'll just report it. Then everyone thinks it's all mine.

Got mine all mounted up going to do a dummy set up in the Tiger this weekend. Tyre looks good!
24 hour Trial not far away now, you sorted out what you are doing or will I have to do that too

Now, since when have you known me to be 'sorted out'?

You know very well that I'll have it tossing around in my head, every now and then (maybe I need to make a list, or should that be a note?) at the last second, which comes at the end of the 11th hour, I'll do the headless chook thing then just manage to scrape through. One day I'll get caught out, sure as bears are catholics and the pope shits in the woods.


In any event - we need photos, Leigh. You can take them, send them to me & I'll smug em and post em here, if that's what it takes.

Got mine today. Looks the goods. Sorry Bulli, I'm not going to the Border run. It's going to take me long enough to get to the OCR without having to go there first (yes I know I'm a woose).

Later

Don't get you knickers all stretched you blokes. This is LeighSA's mock up in the back of his Tiger 900.

He'll fill in the details whenhegetsaroundtuit.

Yes, it will look trick but function always comes first.

Good work Ian. Bloody hell you can really see the difference compared to the front wheel. Hopefully they will last at least 10000 km, that will at least make them worth the wait.

Won't be trying mine until the OCR.
