Looks like a sano job there BG. Do they still say that?

I mounted up my New Wolfman Enduro Bag on my DR650 today. Pics are simply too exciting to put on the internet. Trust me they are awesome.

Installs look good! Next time you're checking in ask for a drink coupon... works for me every time ... or just tell them to put it on Buzztails tab... they know I'm good for it

Figure it out!

Guys sorry to keep pestering you with my tire problems. The tire isn't sitting all the way. I've tried everything I can possibly think off. From inflating all the way to trying to help it sit properly with the tire irons to bouncing it full and half way empty. Any ideas? I'm about to take it to the shop bc I don't really know what else to do right now and don't want to pop my new tube either. I'm out of ideas...

Thanks
John

I've occasionally had to resort to letting the tire sit overnight with 60PSI to get the bead to seat. That ain't the textbook way to do it but it has always worked. Spray some Windex or Ru-glide down where the bead hasn't seated yet. The "right" way to fix yer problem is to break the bead again, lube thoroughly with Windex/Ru-glide/soapy water, and air back up. Tire mounting is like another activity in a certain way...lube is yer friend, use it generously.

and lock the door so yer stepmom can't walk in

Hey FU do you have GPS tracks for technical riding up there? I have some dual sport stuff, but nothing really challenging.

Went out riding Astatula, Tavares, Mt. Dora, Mt. Plymouth, Sorrento, and Zellwood. Surprised by the amount of 2 lane county roads and opened roads up there. Riding all AGATT is not fun or comfortable but rather a necessary evil. Had to stop a couple of times to cool down.


looking forward to some dirt soon

Your bike is too clean, you need a layer of baked on clay they grade the roads with around here.

Its like free ceramic coating for the exhaust.

Since I have so much trouble getting on and off this blooming 500xc-w, I ordered this DIY kit to lower front and back 32mm. Does not change springs and no need to open the forks for a shim.

Spooned on new rubber in the front and took the trials tire off the rear of the four fiddy. Straitened my bars that were twisted from the collar bone crash. Ordered O-rings, because I noticed leak at the water pump . Oh well it will hold for a while, finally back to dirt ridding

Put some new shoes on the Vee after the 6 year old take off Shinko 705s separated.
