    Great for you Elvis 70, I like the 407 cockpit due to a little more room and the speed. I like the L4 because is is just like putting on a glove when you operate it. The A-star has a good following but I don't have any time in one. Did fly the SA-315 Llama with 100' long line hauling explosives and Bambi buckets. Great sling load machine and good at altitude in the mountains. Never got used to the "backward" rotation of the rotor system and having to grease the machine every fuel stop.:huh Look forward to meeting you down the road. I will be the guy on the XR650L laying on my side in the dirt.

    I worked for Shell oil doing geophyiscal exploration in Wyoming back in the early eighties. They had at least 12 helicopters on site, Best I can remember Bell Jet Rangers, Hughes 500D and AĆ©rospatiale Llama's and Gazelle. Lots of fun and good memories sure do miss those days.

    Must be a big bike thing Steve. I had them on my DRZ when I first got it. They really sucked on it. Of course, my riding on mud sucks anyway.

    Well that's 2 against. MT-21 it is. And if I do that, I only need the rear right now.

    I was thinking about that. Big difference where and how I would ride a 990 and my DRZ. Probably not a good comparison. Probably be a good tire for a GS, although my GS is ridden mostly on slab and gravel, so the Tolerance is a good tire for mine. :nod

    No pictures so no reference to your ridding on mud. :D

    Steve, I have run many pairs on the 990. For you I would think the rear tire would be just fine. The only thought is the front will definitely have less bite in the loose gravel and sand. That is what I had on that day we rode Panell rd and it was muddy. Hence the little bit of napping I did in one of those big mud channels. I would try one on the back first. If you like and find a good deal on a front you can try that later. I would recommend a 606 or TKC front if you find them cheap since you like the dirt a little more and don't usually get to stupid on the pavement.:D

    As I recall that day in the mud is the only time I ever saw you open that 950 up and play. You may like the fact that the back will break loose a little sooner on the loose gravel.
