I just ordered a Kenda K760 rear and a Pirelli Scorpion XCMH front for the DRZ.. We'll see how those work out. I've never used either of them... They won't be here till Monday though so this weekend if I get any time to ride I'll be on the F650....

This weekend I'll most likely be using my spare time wrenching on my truck and the DRZ..

I have the Kenda on my DRZ...definitely like it better on the rear than my current 606... the A10 has a great reputation too...for the rear.. but the scorpion pro is the front everyone raves about.

Scorpion Pro is a great front, but it tends to lose the side knobs in the rocks. It's probably last you a while if you don't do too many trips up Baby Head Hill./

I'd like to hear a report on the A-10 front tires. I have 2 of them brand new and wonder if they are good or not.

hey guys, I know this is a little off-topic, but just an FYI...

There's a Waterfire in Providence on Friday evening, December 14 (that's tomorrow), starting at 6pm after a tree lighting. Santa will be there (who doesn't love Santa!), along with caroling, which has got to be better than the crappy New Age music that's usually part of the event.

While I'm not a crazy Waterfire nut (I'm sure some of you would have expected that I was), it is a cool event when it's really cold. You can feel the heat from the fires and smell the wood burning--it's a great little December treat.

So come on down (or up) to PVD tomorrow night with the family and enjoy the sacred flames! Bikes get special parking.

I'm not a big fan of new year's resolutions, but this year has been truly crappy. It has got to get better.

To kick off 2013, I've started the KTM fund!


(I'm still looking for a 2006 Husky TE610, so if you know of one...)

Wishing all of you a very happy, healthy, prosperous and drop-free new year!

Can you buy KTM's with Stop & Shop gift cards?
