Well, I've been thinking up a ride for invisible monster and I Sunday, got the rough-in planned. It's rained a lot down here the past several days so a few places will be inaccessible. I know other roads.
Which let me to thinking about the condition of my rear tire...
What are y'all running on the back of your WRR? (Since there's about 2 dozen of 'em in this thread) I have a worn Michelin T63 on there now, have no complaints about it, but haven't been on any mud. The guy I bought the bike from gave me some type of trials tire that looked like it would suck in mud, but feels pretty soft and the stock Trailwings (or whatever they are). I have 244s on the KLR & they seem OK. Do the T63s work well in all conditions? If so I may just pick up a new one.

whats the wet weight on the TA?

Bummer is they do have a 17" rear. I try to recycle all my old tires from the 950 to either the 640 or the front of the Transalp but rears are always bought new on the TA. Last month I broke down and bought both tires new for the TA so I'd have good skin for the winter.
So it's a twin cylinder dr650?

I have 4 now. I guess for multiple camera angles if I ever get around to it.

2 H1's plus the 3D system

1H2 This one broke twice on me within about a month and the second time it happened they gave me the option to get a new H3 instead of repairing the H2. I took the H3 option but they said I wouldn't get it until this week sometime. After I took the H3 option a week later I received an H2 in the mail. ??? They haven't asked for it back or billed me for it so I'm keeping it too.

1H3 This one is smaller, faster, higher res, etc.

you can barely bother to edit the stuff you record as it is....do you REALLY think you'll ever get around to putting together a multi-camera video...?

I'm waiting on a (reasonable) quote from Buildit to do my editing..lol

I put all my videos together on an ext drive and had over 1TB of them. That was even after I deleted the ones I had already edited.

I keep thinking I'll get around to it when the weather gets bad but with global warming it may never happen...

I've been meaning to make a FAILED compilation of all my bad (or good depending on how you look at it) crashes. I figured that would be something people would watch. Not that I give a shit if anyone watches them or not. ;) I just want to get more total channel views than Buildit. lol Some friendly competition of course...

WINITPRO 87 subs and 90,500 total views...
ADVfilmer 214 subs and 151,000 total views....

I'll stop talking about videos now in order not to piss off the natives....
