D00d's an injunear not a grammer t-cher.
a prefix, occurring originally in loanwords from Latin, used with the meaning “again” or “again and again” to indicate repetition...
Soooo "rediculous" just means a repeat of ridiculous....which surely fits Hall's .
How is that for "engineering" our vocabulary ?
New tire offering from Continental..."TKC70 Rocks" rear tire. About halfway between the TKC70 and the TKC80.
After my Michelin Anakee Adventures wear out I might give the Conti's a more serious look, although the Michelins are doing quite well so far..
I like the rear, but I’d like a bit more bite from a front that’s a real 50/50 tire
^ I agree. The front on the Michelin is more aggressive, so maybe a TKC 80 front and the 70 on the rear would work better....
Anybody riding the woods on Saturday ??
The TKC 80 front/Shinko 805 rear combo has worked well for me but the rear is a 3k mile tire the way I ride. Pairing the front 80 with that rear 70R might work well for me without losing too much performance off pavement. Price is another factor.
Looks like a meatier version of the rear Metzeler Tourance that came on my scrambler. I dig it.
I love the Tourance on my GS. Second set.
Not a sand tire however but for gravel and regular dirt it great.
I ran the tourance NEXT on my Super tenere for a while, but I had sidewall cracks after trailering it out to Yellowstone. Otherwise a great tire, most likely user error. I had to really strap it down to keep it from falling over in my trailer. Would have saved money to just buy a pitbull restraint.
The Shinkos on my Oilhead were quite good price/ mileage wise as they are inexpensive, but not great for long distance traveling. 3-4K out of a rear tire would have meant changing tires 3 times on some of my trips had I used them.
I found Bridgestone tires to last much longer. On my Alaska trip I used the 501/502 and they lasted about 8K miles on some of the roughest road surfaces I ever saw.. That chip seal made with granite really wears out tires fast. At the halfway point in Anchorage I swapped them for another set and finish the trip on them. Now if I could only remember what those tires were...
Best wishes and good luck with the surgery today Gimmee!
Thinking about you dude.
I’m sort of feeling that Tkc80//70R combo. Not like I don’t spin the shit out of a rear anyway.
Hey Lapdog (Kevin),
Karen loves the new leathers and they fit perfect. Thanks again. And as far the other project...I have started working on it.
Looking at ordering a seat concepts cover and foam kit for my bike. Anyone have a air powered staple gun I could use for like 30min to an hour?
I see I missed a great time at the Trot but got to enjoy the beautiful weather running laps at Roebling. Although the list of improvements isnt quite complete, the Camoccord is coming along nicely. Surprised quite a few people with its performance. Nothing$ can’t fix.
I used to love those Tourance on my 06 GS...for some reason, they don't make em for the wethead. However, I just put a new Shinko 805 on the rear last night. I put the previous one on before heading west last summer and it was good for 10,000 miles! I put the front on 10,000 miles ago and I think I've still got 50% of the tread left. I will say that they last a long time if you don't use brakes! I've found them to be great on the highway, solid off road (even okay in the sand) , and you can't beat the price. Chinese slave labor goes a long way!
