    Off topic, yay!

    Down at the spring fed creek a few times for a total 3000l of water. Bore pump playing up. Then Chinese and wine by the lake for tea and for the brats to stretch their legs. hdr_00124_normal.jpg 20201118_180151.jpg

    Hey, I just spooned on the same tyre for my 250 2stroke high country setup.

    How do you like it?

    I added a second rim lock as I'm always ripping valve stems.

    Excuse the mess, I got a little over indulgent in the talc.

    How do you find the 250 2T copes with fire trails?

    Surprisingly well.

    I have the suspension setup nice, on the soft side and I just did a test ride with the MT43. Now on fire trails when I'm getting on the gas it doesn't spin and step out, it just grabs traction, drives and GOES!

    First ride also with the TSP head. I started on the soft ignition map but was constantly checking that it wasn't set to the high power map. Lots more power everywhere.

    On the high power map it actually made it easier to ride because the bottom/mid power is improved, it's not such a big hit when the powerband hits.

    Just got home and changed the front sprocket from 13t to 14t for testing next week. With the 13t, 85kph cruising speed was the sweet spot for all day cruising.

    Fuel range was much improved too with TSP head. Did 55K's and only used about 1/3 of the tank. Will do more scientific fuel mileage testing next week.

    The tyre is awesome on dry/loose/loamy/rocky terrain, but is a bit sketchy on wet/muddy trails.
    Combined with the Rekluse and 570 torque, it's a climbing beast.:super

    My tyre has been on for a few years and is about rooted (some would say it was worn-out a long time ago).
    It still hooks-up on hard-pack/shaley tracks, but has lost the braking edge completely so i accidentally do lotsa skids:D
    Dunno how many kms on it now, but guesstimate a coupla thousand.

    @AUSSIEADV looks to be brutal in the high country on the planned weekend. 41c in bright on Saturday. I did a ride up there in 38-40c heat a few years ago, I said to myself never again.

    While that might sound nice, I can't handle more than two stubbies these days, and I'll be damned if I am going up to the high country to not ride a bike.

    MT43s look great ...

    Nice feel, but they let go on corners

    Motoz Mt Hybrid takes the trials hybrid idea forward a fair bit ...

    Fuck off Sam, that doesnt look "great"! :D

    Any wonder they let go on corners. Look at the sides. Theres nothing there. These tyres could be built on for performance.............and looks!

    I don't care how good they look, I wouldn't be seen dead with one of those things on a mighty Husaberg. Yamaha, fair enough.

    They're good around corners - sideways!
    These are a popular flat-track tyre.

    I bought the tyre to do a flat track day, but it got cancelled.......
    Put tyre back on for a high country ride after using-up my last 908 and loved it on the rocks.

    Only lost the rear once on green wet grass crossing some ruts.

    I like the look of the hybrid/gummy/cheater tyres, but haven't tried one yet.
