    Haha! Pulled pork. Met with a bunch of retired guys. I was the last one to arrive. So I quickly ordered on the way to the table. I was early! Retired guys show up early for lunches.

    You da man! Too hot for me. I’m waiting to ride until next week. I’ll be running a chainsaw all weekend. :puke1

    Welcome to the thread.

    Your question book is too vague to answer. Where are you? Do you live there or passing through? Are you on a trip or at home?
    Take care.

    I do my own tire changes. Bought everything I need for about the cost of having a dealer do it once.

    Depends on the bike. Dualsport have always spooned on my own tires as it is a good skill and eventually you have to do by side of road. Street/adventure bikes I also do at home, but use nomar changer to keep from scratching rims, and make it easier on heavier side wall tires. Before that I hit up whatever dealer had the tire I needed. Pricey both for the tire and the dealer change fee. Have changed over 20 tires now on the nomar, both car, and motorcycles for myself and friends.
    They also sell tires at moto tire usa in fenton where they make and sell the nomar. Reasonable prices on tires and cheap changes. They change all tires on the nomar in shop so you can see them do it. Free mount and balance if you buy tire there.

    Anyone else had a hard time finding a 21" front dual sport tire in stock anywhere? This shipping pandemic makes it hard.

    I just ordered Dunlop 606s for both wheels of my CRF450L. Tucker Rocky has them in stock in Texas. Local dealer says they should be here next week.

    Got in a fun ride to madison county il today for the harley pan america demo day. Waited a bit for pavement to dry to their liking then took the bike on a self guided ride, up 203 to 111 and back via back roads. Ergonomics are great, new engine has lots of grunt, and looks grow on you. Downsides are lots of plastic, a propietary ride computer, requiring harley app on phone, no carplay or android auto, and the typical gs weight. This really is the harley gs. They had a dualsport course with a couple bikes shod with anakee wilds and minus mirrors. Ride slalom in gravel, 180, then a slow circle in gravel, then power and brakes. All in gravel lot.
    Other riders agreed engine was good, revs to 9k and had good pull. Sidestand is hard to deploy. Center stand is a joy. Did not mess with suspension much, felt normal to me, did not notice the drop at stops.

    Hey Everyone,

    I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Mark and I'm a new rider based out of St Louis. I just picked up my first bike, a 2018 Honda CRF250L Rally. My MSF course is scheduled in two weeks and I can't wait to get out there and explore.

    Any advice/tips you willing to share with a new rider?

    Hope to see you out there soon!

    I rode one today at LOZ HD. Just an Excellent motorcycle. Power and brakes are superb- a truly great bike, but I can’t see myself riding a Harley….sad because if I’m honest and that Orange Tank had a “KTM” sticker or something…I’d be dreaming about it tonight.

    …and for a company based on nostalgia, they sure made a super high tech performer. Wow!

    Ended up getting a street bike tonight for some 2up riding and more ironbutts cross country. Picked up a 2006 honda st1300 at a nice price. Now looking for some bar risers and other bits. Funny I ride the wr more than the versys, but plan on hitting all the states soon and need to eat some miles. [​IMG]
