I see a trend
Ummmm surely not
cool day. Nice and warm inside...
Love the metal kitty art !
Took Red for a womble out to Clifton Grove Road, off Admiral Hill Road.
Nice ride except about 5km from home my front tyre went flat.
Front flats can potentially be VERY hazardous if they're sudden. How'd ya get Red home MrK?
slow leak. MrsKiwi came with the pump and I could ride about 3 km then pump up again. Bloody spooky when it goes flat, the front end gets a mind totally of its own.
Yup, I can attest to that. Had front flattie on my first time through the Molesworth.
On isolated Flat, no less..
Got more steering out of the rear then the front after that.
I had a flat rear tyre just north of the Clarence River on the molesworth. I was going south, riding solo late in the day after Altimarloch. Not a soul in sight. Suddenly very grateful having a centrestand. Fell in love with tubeless tyres. The fix lasted for the rest of the life of the tyre.
It survived the Northern Hemisphere Lady then?
Stop gassing mr kiwi, and get out and have a ramble or 2, wifi is improving as I head west and I have finished my last book.
busy working and trying to sell the house to buy one we've just put an offer on
Red's OK, but I hear he's been flirting with orange...
you accusing me of being promiscuous
Let us not beat about the bush - you are a Honda slut who has been tempted by the dark side and will now drop yer knickers for the first bit of orange eye candy you see...
You've set such a good example one cannot but be impressed by your level of dedication to the orange whore...
I have three BMW R80's, two Yamahas and a Gas Gas in addition to the Orange Princess.
Thanks for making me feel better about my 2½ Katie's.
I took my AT into our local stealership for a service and when I dropped it off I made the mistake of looking at the tyres. Damn they needed replacing. I had TKC70's on them and I have been using this tyre for a while on my bikes. The front tyre had done about 12,000km which is good on our roads, however the rear tyre only manged about 7000km.
I looked at the range of available tyres and thought I might put Shinko 705's on, but in the end I went for the new Anakee Adventure tyre. Will be interesting to see how these last. The AT is set up for road touring with some good gravel roads, but not for single tracking. When looking for a tyre for the AT I am mindful that it has good grip on the front in the wet when going downhill. Gravel running characteristics come second to that.
