i made that vid with the franken-ninja.
like not at all...
Theres more vids on that web site if you look around.
Chain, I found the ice tire you were talking about...
Looks like it is made for bare ice or packed snow. The knobs are pretty tight. Probably pretty slick on pavment with the hard rubber.
did you buy knobs for the ninja yet?
no... im going to look for a duurrrzzz tomorrow. got a few lined up that i'm gunna check out.
i'd rather not attempt to follow you on the franken-ninja around those roads and the farm. :eek1
can you get Wed off? surely you have acrued some vacation days by now
ride in Galena looks like its gonna be a shakedown for the winter ride
You got me curious what the franken-ninja looks like... Got a Pic?
chain, what size screws are you using?
Ok, so I've got two studded tires comming, thanks Dysco, and Skeeter just ordered up a thousand gold ice screws that will do for the fronts. I hope this combination will keep the bike upright for at least part of the winter ride. Maybe 15-20% anyway. Hell, as long as I can make it up the hill to where the beer is at I'll be in good shape.
Im in for Wednesday...provided I can get the bike goin'...
Hey Staples -- check if vstromrider's 2001 DR650 is still for sale--
Thats a helluva bike for the price...
Congrats on the move and the engagement
Thanks McD... I appreciate it --
See you Wednesday ?
The DR was sold a couple of weeks ago. I believe the DR is about the perfect bike for true 50/50 use. It's not to bad do single track and also do 500 days on the highway!
I went back to the KLR because I had a DRZ laying around.
I'll be there wed. on the KLR!! Looks like the weather is going to be reasonbly good....
So are you guys running studs for the winter ride or not?
I am debating adding em to a pirelli mt21 or just running knobs.
Saw the doc yesterday
Doc says the leg is pretty healed up but I Have alot of pain in the knee still. Still cant walk up or down stairs well. MRI, clear as far as they can tell, but the metal rod obstructs some of the image. I might be looking at some pain in the knee for a long time to come.
Would regular self tapping screws work for a one weekend ride?
If its icy and shitty how many miles are we riding and will it be icy asphalt or icy gravel more?
Is any one actually riding down from chicago?
Saw the doc yesterday
Doc says the leg is pretty healed up but I have alot of pain in the knee still. Still cant walk up or down stairs well. Although I can dismount the drz and kickstart her with my left leg. MRI, clear as far as they can tell, but the metal rod obstructs some of the image. I might be looking at some pain in the knee for a long time to come.
Im no doctor but I think the metal rods are probably enough without using self tapping screws....but, hey, its your leg !
Unlikely at this point, works gonna be busy until the 23rd.
Healing takes time MJ. Just be careful if it swells up all of the sudden, could be a staph infection. If it does get to a doc immediately.
I've been lurking on these threads and was wondering the same thing about tires. I may ride my baby KLR250 up. I have two sets of wheels for it, I could put screws in one, and straight knobs on the other, but that seems like a PITA. A new set of trackmasters should work ok, right? Or I could put them on the NX, e start is always a plus. OTOH, the KLRJR is more dirt and gravel friendly. Hmm, decisions, decisions.
Did we ever set a tentative date? I need to know that before I can commit.
I'm going to have a studded tire on the rear and ice screws on the front. I have hopes that this combination won't suck, but that remains to be seen. I'd like to ride down, but from what I hear, the screws won't hold up long on the street.
no studs or knobs for that matter on a 600lb bike..oh well, guess i'll have to make due..
i'm planning on riding down, anyone else?
where are you guys going wednesday?
anyone ever stud a tourance??
glad yer healing up Joe..
