    I hope you pulled up ok mate & the shoulder isnt too bad from the crash..:eek1

    I came flying over that rise & saw you lying in a ditch with the TDM laying on top of you, I'm glad you didnt get badly injured & I'm sure you will be able to patch up the mighty TDM for future adventures..:ricky

    Now MB.........no more riding until you get back from your o/seas trip, or I'm sure your Mrs will kill you..:deal

    P.S. Did you end up doing a Ride Report ?

    Yeah age is a Barstid, I pulled up to a halt in some deep sand & folded the front end under last week.
    I twisted my ankle pulling it out from under the bike & I'm still limping.:muutt:gerg

    have been lurking for a while now - had an XR400 motard until recently and have just moved to a DR650 (stock but for IMS tank and bash plates)
    I've been using Road and Race (Churchill Rd) for tyres for the XR which worked well as I knew what I wanted .. which is not yet the case for the DR :)

    I've used GC on Mani North road eons ago ...

    so - any recommendations for
    1) commuting + 5% dirt rear tyre for the DR?
    2) where to get it?

    I'll pull the wheel off the bike and drop it off with whoever - I'm not ready to fiddle about fitting my own - no time this week!

    cheers,
    Slapper

    Welcome Slapper. Mate, I reckon the best advice I get on tyres is from the boys at GC's on Main Nth Rd......If they haven't got it, they'll get in in.

    Got my tyres from there. Great service and also got them balanced, so much better on the roads.

    Slapper, for mainly commuting with a bit of dirt thrown in I'd highly recommend the Mitas E07 rear on the DR. Not sure where to buy in Adelaide I haven't run one for a few years but we'll worth a look.

    +1 for the Mitas E07. Have been using them on a DR 650 for quite a while. Jason from Road and Race can get them for you.

    Cheers :thumb

    how about the mitas E08 and/or 09 ?
    I had somethuing on the back of the XR with an 08 looking tread and it did well enough.
    Unfortunately, I don't know exactly what tyre it was ... I was just about to replace it with the same when the bike was stolen - and I hadn't written down anywhere what tyre it was - doubly annoying as I tried 3 different types before settling on this one and had decided this was a keeper :(

    spent a quick 5 minutes hoping to remove the rear whell this morning and stick it in the car.
    bugga! Every other bike has been okay with a few lumps of wood chocked under the motor - the extra 30 kgs or so of the DR means I think it's time to buy a lift/stand! Crap, now I've got to find one that will actually cope with the 160 odd kilograms of DR :(
    Anybody know where I can get something locally?

    every time I get a new bike/car/whatever it seems I have to buy more tools :)

    top effort on the Repco item - pretty much exactly the same thing and the shop's much closer to home!

    in other news: I've decided to try the Mitas E07
    gotta start somewhere :)

    cheers

    I have the Repco atv lifter, good for 680 Kg's. Has a removable handle, lock bars and is able to be raised and lowered by foot pedals leaving your hands free to control the bike. If you join (free) the Repco club they send you a 20% discount voucher. I can move my Tenere around while raised with no probs cause of the handle. The ebay version has none of these features. Hope this makes it a tadd easier to choose 1.
