I'll be more in the B.Curvin, ride mode.
I think MT90s will be fine. I'll be running an OEM K750 on the front and a Shinko 705 on the rear.

I may swing by on Thurs for fluffs and giggles but not staying the night. I'll probably be through early Fri for a ride.

Anyone know if I can fit two tents on a DX site? The kids want their own tent.

Just for that I've decided to come to Hot Springs too so you can hear first hand how much fun you missed.


Al Tuna has asked me to pitch my tent in their campsite on Friday night so he has somebody else to blame for all the snoring sounds.

...and I decided that working and having money to pay bills is over rated...they'll probably still be there when I get home.

I've found that if you throw your bills away, they send you new ones.
