    That's a cheap enough price to use it as a lawn ornament. :rofl

    I almost bought a old broke Vespa hack to turn into a crib for the tax credit on the way. MrsDonkeys loved the idea, but I couldn't figure out how to get the tug down the hallway.

    This gives a whole new idea. Use the tub as the crib, mounted on the wall, and take the tug to chop into the Ural scrambler adventure bike that I've always wanted to build. MrsDonkeys is very glad this one is far away.

    I haven't gotten a reply yet so...

    No bath tub, crib or mail box. I am just curious to see if this could work out, at that price I could do a "fly and ride" and still afford to break down a few times.

    Gents,

    I am still eyeballing a few bikes in the New England area. Some have frames, others are not easily adapted.

    Does anyone have a sidecar subframe for sale? If so, please inbox me as I can reverse my search and buy a bike that fits the frame. New/Used is fine.

    Mucho dubbbble dankes,

    Andy

    Just bought a Metzeler ME880 two weeks ago. It's a 110/80-19 which is the standard size for a BMW GS. Rode it to the Hells Canyon Rally and back--total mileage about 980 miles. It's now for sale. $50 plus $20 shipping.

    [​IMG]



    Works great on wet and dry pavement. Works OK (not great) on dry dirt and pavement. Not suitable for mud. Which means it's not suitable for me.

    There are some scratches in the side of the tread caused by rocks grinding into it when my front wheel locked up at about 25mph in some mud. I'm guessing they'll be gone after another 1000 miles of use.

    PM me if interested. If no hackers want it, I'll post it up to the big FM next week. Which reminds me--I'm leaving tomorrow for another rally so if you DO want it, you won't hear back from me until Sunday.

    I called the guy and the above is a Bavarian Classic that was completely submerged in the storm surge.

    I had that tire on my R1200C. Definitely not meant for use off-road.

    I have done many thousands of off road miles with an ME880 on the front of my GS rig and it works quite well for me. The problem he had wasn't with the tire but with the fact that it is a taller tire and the low fender on the bike did not work in the mud. I did the whole Trans Labrador, phase 1,2 and 3, in the rain and had no issues at all.
