    don't forget: it's not because you're a good rider that it doesn't mean others aren't good enough to get you...
    Ride safe!

    I'm feeling the winter doldrums here in the great white north and will have to resort to posting pics of tires that aren't even mounted yet on my AT.
    These Karoo 3's arrived recently via Canada Post from Montreal and you really have to see them up close to appreciate them.
    So I'll include a few pics from different angles in order to see what the buzz is all about on these new tires from Metzler.

    but how do you merge stock african's front wheel with ktm adventure fork
    if I remember correctly they have a different axis diameter
    I stand in the half way of this process, I have ktm adv fork, but no wheels from ktm adv :(

    I use 2009 ktm 990 fork, and i left a ori clamps and wheel. Turner make a new pivot that is compatible with at wheel and ktm fork.

    If you want use an ori clamps you got two options;
    You have to make this part (sorry i dont know how its calle in eanglish) thiner(about 2-3mm) because there arent enought space and have welded a little pice with new screw hole. That is what my friend made but i dont like that version.
