  1. Just wanted to let you big bike guys know that chaparral has the best deal I've ever seen on the 908 rally raid tire available in 140 and 150 18. The front 21 is on sale also. I've wanted to run this tire for years but couldn't justify the $200 plus price tag. I'm not sure why the tire is so cheap but I have to guess that they must be getting a bit older to be letting them out at that price. I'm currently running the motoz rallz 140 on the 950se, this 908 will be the replacement.
  2. Sooo I smashed my 8gallon Safari tank on a log... a 3 x .125 split opened up and made a mess. The price on this tank is horrendous so it's got me considering a professional repair. Does anyone know someone local that uses a hot nitrogen torch for plastics repair? Quick steel got me home but it's a leaker.
  3. Great to meet up for a bit guys, really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting up 151! Just got home, was a big dirt day on the big bike. Found some singletrack perfect for smashing a gas tank on... Quick steel, never ride trail without it.

    Yamaha Super Tenere 700

    It's funny, I get the impression that the general public views our bikes as hideous, and I get it, a bunch of jumbled lines and shapes going in all directions, and that windscreen, so not cool. Just gunna strap on some goofy space boots and throw it around in the dirt anyways...The uglier the better! πŸ€ͺ
  5. Thanks for posting up 151. I'm on a second shift also, early mornings on the weekend are a beeotch. Monday morning for the weekend recovery 😴 I'll be riding up to Idyllwild via the same general route. Trying to get to Idyllwild around noon for a randevu in the pines with conquistador de ATK. It'd be great to meet up with some new faces. Hope to join in for some of this. Gotta see this T7 and the legendary HP2 , hope to get the ol 950se out. Giants of Erzberg Rodeo meetup Udo, yes, I didn't know you had one!🏁

    Apparently you can pull 40 lb off the bike pretty easy, that seems really significant. Getting it to the 400lb mark has me suddenly interested in riding one... Could it be, my 950ser meets africa twin? I'm sure it's not at brutal as the super enduro but maybe it's not as doughy as I first thought πŸ’­

    Free Android Apps for smart phone mileage tracking

    This is a very simple app I've used from time to time. It's a dash with heading and miles per hour along with mileage tracking capabilities very simple to use.
  10. One of the classic San Diego dual sport rides. Glad you guys had a good time, welcome to the club and tanks for sharing the videoπŸ‘

    Why it's best to run DOT tires

    Hummm, dimensionally the metzler's have larger gaps compared to the 606, definitely more aggressive tread pattern. Other than that though, it's been a while since I've run a 606 so it's hard for me to compare them... All three are round made of rubber and grippy off the road? Pfaff πŸ₯΄ 🀦 As Mimi points out, seems that the DOT selection is mint these days... Maybe to good?...
