    I use a Cruz tools gauge with a flexible line on it, available from Dennis Kirk, and other places I'm sure. It is not a cheap gauge, but the flex line means I can get it on any wheel, including the pain in the arse sport bike wheels with huge brake discs and no room. It is a well made gauge, I like it a lot.

    EDIT: Basically the same one Pinecone just posted. Pinecone is fabbo. :raabia


    Big Zed runs very nicely, had a nice test ride today, all is well with that bike again. Pretty happy about that. :thumb

    Not sure how long Moon Motorsports has been on the map of dealerships for Motus, might have a chance to see one next year?

    Moon is probably one of the best dealerships to handle Motus. Coolio.

    The Kid gave me a ring after I left and we met out here. We rode down around Henderson and then down to St. Peter. Stopped at Whiskey River for lunch. Rode East damn near to HWY 35 and I came back home. He's headed to Rochester.

    Didn't get any pictures, but had a good ride!

    Tyres are good you know. Those Michelin T63s are good on KLRs, and relatively inexpensive. They may not be the BEST tyre, but they are very good, and 67 bucks per tyre as opposed to over a hunert for other types.

    They help prevent :muutt

    I'm amazed how well they grip on ice.

    Did not last long. The sun is out again and the roads are almost dried off.

    I dug the DRZ out of the basement again yesterday. I rode through puddles, streams, mud, and snow. Turns out my really old gortex work / hunting boots are no longer water proof! My frigging feet were freezing!

    Welcome back to winter....you blinked and missed the rest of spring, all of summer, and all of fall.
