The 9 fitty:
Ray, that XR is sooo sweet! 60hp? Holy cow.
I can't wait to ride it. I have Fugly's big brother with a tag on it as well. I plan to get them both out back-to-back and see which one I should keep. I suspect the XR will kick butt. Wish we had some warm dry weather in the forecast.
Heindl has the 150's in stock and their customers like the tires !!
The tires are balanced and on the bike--now please stop the rain.
When you can get 10k, the cost is minimal. This tire is probably not real good
on the Enduro/Cross country type trails,but should be good for most anything else.
For me and my 4000 mile trip this year out to the Dakota's on dirt/2 track/sandy trails
farm roads it will be perfect. The gravel out there is VERY SHARP and abrasive.
Thanks for the advise some of you all gave me. And thank Ray for our togetherness!!!
PS--Remember, I'm riding an "adventure bike"--500#'s. 10-4
You need to get one of them sweet butt things. I think the guy that makes them is local...
Why, I already have a Pompous Ass....
I am a Heidenau dealer and can save you some money.
If you pick them up at the shop I'll give you an additional "club" $10 per tire discount.
I'll ship for free, But can't give the the "club" discount if shipped.
Don't spend more with someone that doesn't support the group.
I'm getting a pair for my extra XR rims and I have heard nothing but good about them.
Sport Tour 5l3.76l-O936
I can get ALL sizes and models. But these are ones I normally stock.
K37 4.00-19 for the Urnal... er I mean Ural $127
The K60 is a great in Adventure tire. Not as agressive as a TKC-80 but more aggressive than a Tourance. With tire wear closer to the Tourance
110/80-19 M&S $134 (more street)
150/70-17 M&S $178 (more street)
Hey guys, I'm on the email list and am looking forward to riding with ya.
The entries for the Hanging Rock at Lake Hope are being sent out and the flier will be posted soon.
I am over just North of Indy. I sent Bob a message and would like to be added to your list. Won't make any meetings but hope to make it over and join you guys for a couple rides.
Hey DualSport, you are the Sporttour guy? Never put 2 and 2 together on that one. My wife and I have found many things to spend our expendable income on in your fine establishment! Just thought I'd give a shout, and when I get back in town I'll be seeing you about some tyres.
@ Tom Whitt. That Baghira is a sturdy looking bike. How many miles? What size tank?
Looks like it got put up!
This is Bill Kaeppner
We will have two great days of Adventure ridng and 1 day (saturday) that will have a dualsport. Our dualsport rides are "Trail Rides" ask the folks who rode one and our Adventure rides are super. They have maxamum back roads and high clearence roads but NO single track. We will have an optional Adventure/dualsport road enduro on sunday.
Lake Hope has great camping of all types AND cabins too!
Wow Tom. What a cool bike. That thing would look great with white body panels
I sure miss that old girl. You gonna get it dirty this year?
Yes sir'e that would be me. I work at Sport Tour during the week and play with dual sport bikes evenings and weekends.
That is a very cool bike. Very large air box that allows for DEEP water crossing with full bike submersion.
I was following a guy that crossed a high creek getting his seat wet. I thought to myself "self I will cross downstream a little as to not hit that hole" WRONG. I blew the headlight and tail light bulbs when the cold water hit them. The bike didn't miss a bit. Another one I should have kept.
It would probably still be white if it all didn't flake off showing purple spots underneath. I would have touched it up if the previous owner would have given me the extra white paint like he said he would. Hehe... nah, probably not. I'd still like to get all the stock extras/spares for it though if you ever come across them (particularly the handlebar top clamps, pegs, etc). Surely after 2-1/2 years you've come across them by now.
Approaching 18k-kilometers. About 12 liters, I think. Not nearly enough.
I had it submerged up to the seat once by accident crossing a creek that was deeper than I thought. I wanted to turn around and go do it again (after all, my boots had already filled with water), but it freaked me out so bad I didn't have the nerve.
Camo Tom? How do you find it after you biff? Follow your biff-tracks in the dirt back to the bike? :huh
Some of you know me, some don't. Chad in Cincy. No DS now, working on changing that. Anyone want to buy a 1996 Magna?
Been on ADV a while, I'll link a few local ride reports if it's kosher for this thread.
