    This popped in my feed..
    Dang that bike sounds nice, even when it bounces off the rev limiter..
    Geeze he pushes that thing in some spots.
    Looks like a real good high speed cruiser. :thumb

    He makes decent videos. The bike easily runs a 1 tooth bigger front cog if you aren't doing any slow stuff off road.

    such a nice high rpm note.
    I can’t believe how he commentates the whole thing so calmly.

    In the comments he says stock, just header and pipe, rode sight unseen.
    Both rider and bike does real well. :thumb

    that’s a lot of big bikes on the beach.
    I see he lost a number plate in one of the vids.
    Does the roost radius clear the indicators ok.?

    I really need to block this thread.
    it plants tiny little seeds, to match my tiny little legs..:fpalm :lol3

    Well, the Karoo 3 rear isn't going to last much longer, may see about 3500 klms out of it. Been great on the road and fine off road, but wear is fairly quick. Lucky I picked it up cheap.

    Thinking I may give the AX41 rear a go next, how have others been finding them so far?

    Golden Tyre front has 5000 klms on it now and has slight cupping but has been excellent everywhere so far. Probably about a 1/3 worn now.

    Anyone have experience with the Bridgestone AX41 tyres?

    I never liked the Karoo 3 ... it disappeared quick even on my 900 scram... the 800 tiger ate it. Not tried that battle ax... I’ve been trying all the motoz tractionators for awhile now. About to try the rallz front :-)
