    Changing a tire

    Don't be fooled........he's simply offering to take a picture of his boots while also offering advice from the lounge chair with a cold beer in his hand

    I'm booked up the first three weekends in March but currently open the 22nd-24th. I can burn some vacation on week days but I'd like to incorporate a weekend to cut down on vacation time. Sounds like the consensus is to take the 500 vs. the 950.......if not this year some future year...... A group of ~10 or so friends are starting the ride TODAY.......they have a mix of big and small bikes........it'll be interesting to hear their feedback........I believe they will be staying at motels each night rather than carrying camping gear......
  3. Nice work Jim........now you can show me how to edit my vids
  4. No Bark Busters? I hope you're packing extra levers and/or vice grips (to serve same purpose)......those stock levers will bend like a pretzel and/or break off when "Rigger takes a Digger"

    Oh no, a big bike tire thread

    Throwing Bridgestone UHD tubes in both tires......I know they’re big/heavy tubes on an already heavy bike but it’s an added measure of comfort......I carry spare heavy duty tubes.....the ultra’s are just too big to carry 20/24 surprises me......I would have thought the inverse for flat protection up front & traction in the rear......that said, my pure street bikes are always lower psi in front

    Oh no, a big bike tire thread

    Wow, glad I asked........I was thinking ~20 in the dirt and ~30 on the street....... I'm pre-conditioned to ~14/12 on my little bikes.......or ~14/10 with an MT43 on the rear......

    Oh no, a big bike tire thread

    So what's your preferred "all condition" cold PSI load on the 990 front and rear? This pigpen PSI stuff is all new to me......
  8. Has anybody tried the Golden 723 ADV/Rally tires on their big ADV bike? Ordered a set from Rocky Mtn for the 950SE........standard 723 up front (apparently "r" front is a "fatty" like the small bike dualsport tire) and 723S in the rear........not sure what the "S" is all about?.......I assume it's "standard" or "street".........the 723R rear is supposed to be a more gummy/rally rear tire...... Hoping to get decent life out of the tires since they're STOOOOPID expensive.......which is why I went with the regular/standard 723 as opposed to the "R" models.... Let's add another element to this thread........what PSI do you guys/gals with big bikes run at offroad - ~20 front and rear? "S" rear page on Rocky Mtn: https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/tires-and-wheels/goldentyre-gt723s-rally-adventure-rear-tire-p No "S" reviews on Rocky Mtn so I assume they're fairly new? Lyndon Poskitt seems to like the 723 family of tires.........that's good enough for me (of course his are free ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUJZM7BH9xA&feature=youtu.be
  9. Nice catch.......it's a rare occasion when you're able to snap a pic of the bighorns!

    I’m all over that plan Rigger......perhaps late March

    Yep, George confirmed he did the prior suspension set up.......may be fine or may need slightly more stout springs up front.........heading over to George's for sag adjustment/clicker settings/springs once I get everything else sorted on the bike..... Good point on balancing the carbs - Todd Whiteside (not sure what his handle is on SDAR?) is coming by and has a tool to balance the carbs.....Todd is just one of maybe 5(?) local guys that Arnie talked into buying a 950SE

    Arnie took care of all the “must do’s” Upgraded skid plate Side stand relocated HDB hand guards Scott’s Dampener GPS mount Akrapovic 2-1 exhaust Aux fuel tank where left exhaust was located (extra 1.5 gallon) Voltage regulator relocation ( to avoid over heating) Rear Fender eliminator Dr Beans fuel pump mod (better reliability) Wolfman racks/soft luggage Jason put a new battery in it before I came over Sat morning and we were able to get it to start........that said, it wouldn't stop "popping"......assuming the carbs are a mess.......it's on a stand in my garage now........I was out there fiddling around yesterday while some folks were watching some game?!?!........ I'll be cleaning the carbs, checking valves, installing new plugs, changing oil, etc., etc.......some basic TLC...... I ordered a new set of GoldenTyre GT723 Rally/Adventure tires (stooooped expensive but thought I'd give'em a try just for the heck of it.........I like the Golden Fatty front on my 500), Bridgestone UHDs, and a Seat Concepts seat..... A friend is tapping the bar clamp to mount my GPS.......did that on my 500 and I'm really happy it I'll likely roll the bars forward a tad...... Luckily it appears Arnie must have had George at Suspension 101 work in the internals of the rear shock because the bike is lower than it's scary stock height (thankfully)........already reached out to George to get things sorted/realigned once the bike is up and running again.......need to set sag and springs for my weight....... Hope to be "ride ready" by the end of the month.......

    That's correct.........I was pondering a 690 (dirt bike to get you to street) or 790 (spendy/new street bike to get you to dirt)........this bike isn't fancy but should fit the bill nicely.........no ABS, Ride-by-Wire, fuel injection, etc., etc..........but I don't care.......it's a ~410lb. (dry) 950cc twin.......light enough to handle off road and porky/smooth enough to carry gear/transport me on some trips with long transit sections...... The Cure for Common Sense.......ha!

    Emotional roller coaster morning.....tears were shed along with some belly laugh moments reminiscing about Mexico/stateside good times & rides with Arnie Fry. Thank you Christie, Jason, Todd, & Clint. I’ll take good care of the 950 Super Enduro and I know Arnie will be right there with me wherever I roll. 😇👍
