A key word here being "most"; I could corroborate this observation.

Plus had to wait for my buddy to get home from work ,11 . Two trips to town . A big thanks to Ryan for helpin with that Kawi tire ( tough to get off bead ) Now , we just gotta ride . Never tryed Shinko's before , The 705's look ok . All three of us are going to run different psi . My buddy on the Kawi ,Run's almost 40 . My other bud ,likes 35 . I'm goning to run 32 psi ,both front and rear . , I was just reading about some rider getting a 140 x 18 to fit a XR 650 L . The only size i could get was a 120 / 18 in the 705 rear tire . The next size up was a 150 . I just removed a kenda 5.10 /18 , It rubbed the top chain guide , no biggie . but 2500 miles is all i got out of it ! Would really like to use a Kawi rear rim ,laced up to my hub ! Its wider and i could get any size i wanted . Bikes already lowered , front and back . My xr eats tires a little faster then the Kawi . I wonder how many miles i'll get out of the 705 shinko's ?
I currently run a 705, 150/70/17, 32 psi, 4200 miles of 50/50 tarmac (75-80 mph) /gravel roads (45-55 mph) no problems with fitment on that rim size (no chain guard). Time for a new one as the 'dual sport' tires are hard to come by in 17", slick down the middle, about two inches wide, $74.00 on the shelf locally.

This could be a fun idea for a regional ride. Announce a date and target location, press GO. Since I live in Indiana, I do not see too many other ADV'ers. Maybe start out small and fairly close, a few hours ride. My money is on this guy.

I want that bike. A Café 2 stroke triple with fairing, OH yeah!

Ok here's my concept on how the ADV Gumball Rally will work. If every body keeps chiming in like the last few post this COULD BE A REAL HOOT.

Everybody confirms and antes up.
Each contestant's contact info is gathered and distributed.
Each contestant's starting location is plotted.
Each contestant's bike displacement is known. 750cc and less will only be required to go 85% of the distance the 750cc and bigger bikes travel.
A center point calculated by mileage and displacement and is determined and declared. ( EXP. if Steve, Brian, and Me are in it would be, I'm guessing, in S. Dakota )
A go time is selected. Everybody brings along a white elephant gift, first five there split the pot proportionally, last one there ?????

A good event to get the Iron Butt 1000 miles in 24hrs.

Early fall or late spring.
