Innocuous sentences like that often lead to bike acquisitions
Do you mean the PR4 Trails?
Yip. The R5 Trail isn't here yet, but the two PR4 Trails I've had have stuck like shit to a blanket. Totally different compound structure to the standard. Sweet.
Yeah. I've been using the pr4 trails and loved them. But mounting those 19" fronts has pissed me off more than once.
I'm going to use your expression. I just laughed so hard.
Fitted this thing that came Wednesday, ordered Sunday arrived Wednesday.
Festy but not dead......
Went to Sydney and got Frank Pons to lower and valve the missus' DR, HE650RS. Found some issues with the Ohlins shock too, so well worth it, Frank does a great job.

I'm looking for an airhead. Just have to sell a couple Dukes first.
I finally got around to finishing the welding on my homemade racks, I originally just tacked them together and took them for a test ride, that was 2 yrs ago () so since I broke yet another weld I thought I should finish the job.
You fit them yourself? Fook that! My local shop has a machine for that, and they usually put a beer in my hand while I'm watching....
(My well proven motto; look after your *GOOD* local shop, and they'll look after you.)
Pikchas, or it never happened.
I've got a friend with a machine. It's easy enough to get them on but getting the #@*&'ing bead to set?
I don't wanna pay $60 a wheel to have tires mounted. Not when I go through 5-6 sets per year.
Who charges $60 to fit tyres? FFS!!
My local charges zilch, zero, Nuffin. I just take my wheels in. Mind you, I buy almost Nuffin on line, almost everything comes from my local. Thus I receive a small discount on everything, and they look after me...
Our local bike shop charges $20 a lot of them do, and some the fitting is in the price of the tyre
Quick ride yesterday arvo...
The GS got new front brake pads.
I feel the same way but it takes time and labour. (I feel like I need to use Oz spelling for you guys. ) So I do it myself. I also buy local from a place called Moto Guild. It's a DIY garage. But my friend has a tyre machine (the pneumatic one!) so I do it at her place. Plus we can chat and usually grab lunch together as well.
I spell like a seppo, sorry!
How are you getting on with the new ride?
Enough bike to get me in just the right amount of trouble.
Hey that bike looks orright considering they forgot to paint it and just slapped stickers on the undercoat
