Wayne nice Versys! Is that a Shinko front? How are they holding up. I stopped considering them after I read some reviews about them having durability issues.

I just put on a set of Pirelli Scorpion Trail. First time mounting motorcycles tires and it was as much work as I expected.

Too early, Wayne ain't even done with his first cup-0-joe yet.

BTW: Looks like a Metzler Tourance....

While not a dual sport tire, I have a Shinko R011 Verge on the back of the Bandit. Currently has 10K on it and appears to be good for a couple more. The most I have gotten out a rear before, Conti Force, was just over 9K.

He's 69 and slowing down,(according to him) no need for such a bike as a 1050.

I'd like to have a mo proppa dirt machine, and that DRZ really hit the button. Ah well...

cant' even begin to sell the Tiger til my 650 is on the road again......

Tom, 2 bikes are nice, especially if you do your own wenchin.... I suppose, if your only bike was a Strom, that might be ok, but my 650 has had many electrical issues and has spent MONTHS and MONTHS apart in my basement. ... I didn't say I was good at wenching....

You don't have to kiss ass just cuz your on the thread I started when buying the Strom I wanted a true do all machine. Thats not saying Stroms are the only ones by far. But certainly one of the only ones I can afford. That being said I did just about everything on the Nighthawk as well with street tires and two-up. I think HBN was testing me that day. Pretty sure I passed other than the vertigo kicking in heading up to Spruce Knob which ended my day quickly.

Sometime between Laurel Fork and CCC3 Im gonna do some localish camping if anyone wants to join. Thinking Pocomoke State forest. Waiting for the water to warm so we can canoe and stuff. Some decent roads down that way. Maybe head down to Chincoteague Va for a day trip. Just a thought at this point. I stopped in there yesterday to get my head together after seeing a horrible accident. I was still shaking. I have seen way to many people killed in my life for some reason. Yesterday makes 8, I think, total. Seems odd other than folks who have been in a war or rescue types to see that many, no?
