Non DOT tire though but I am sure it is good as Maxxis makes some great tires. We always ride the roads quite a bit so we stick with DOT tires.

I wish I would have known as I have a brand new one here I could have sold you when you needed it. It's the heavy duty version part number:
LFX14L2-BS12

As far as lasting goes...don't ever let it get discharged past something like 12.866 volts (resting voltage) or it will kill it. Another thing is keep it dry. The cases on those (at least the earlier ones) are not sealed very well and a water crossing gone wrong with a submerged bike could ruin your day in more ways than one.

In just the few hours I've had her, I've already become attached and will be sad when she goes, but I'm not stationary at the moment and can't have a dog when I leave for a month or two at a time.

Can text pics if you want.

Anyone else see Zach Bell's crash last night in Dallas? I can't believe he came back and qualified in LCQ!

He showed a lot of heart. I hope he comes back and wins the 250 East!

That fella has a lot of heart. He's going places if he can avoid getting hurt.

I'll be waiving at yawwl next saturday night from the Georgia Dome if Speed Channel will shine their camera on me.

Can you carefully try to see what shape the o-ring is in? If it was just loose and didn't damage the o-ring, you should be able to put it back together and tighten it back up. Let me know what you find. I probably have the parts on hand if you're in a pinch. I have quite a few o-rings of that size but not silicone, probably one or 2 silicone ones as well.?

Does yours use a bolt and washer, or a big nut and splined washer? Mine is nut and washer, which I have spare. Bolt and lock washer, we can probably source @ a hardware store. Or.... Call Chip @ Munns.
