I've had several flats this winter. I have had very good luck with green "Slime" in tube tires, including the Scrams rear tire. I change my own tires and it has never given me an issue changing a tire that has had "Slime" in it. It may not be all that safe for high speed riding, but it will get your home.

I didn't get a garage until last year. Before that was many a years of car port and parking garage mechanics! I lost many a security deposits due to oil stains....

They have a adv discount too, check in vendors discount thread.

Here's a thread to get an idea of mounting:

yeah- i did look at the rotopax and the like, but i gues i'm a little leery of putting all my eggs in one basket. that, and i like the idea of dividing the weight- tho not sure how much that matters. i guess my real concern was the fuel's proximity to the exhaust- and i was just curious if anyone had mounted fuel on the right side. so far, i haven't heard of anyone doing that...

Still cold, but some friends and I took a 300 km ride out by the Oslo fjord. A Scrambler, two Bonnevilles and Thruxton.

A couple scrams and a bonne for us...excellent weekend for riding. A lot of the casual cagers are not out yet up on the scenic drives. The bonne owner was killing it on the dirt we hit up behind central city.

I would love to find a used Arrow system but I am scared to think of what the shipping cost would be across the pond.

Checked the post service and they have a parcel service that is priced after kg.
kg3 NOK 495,-
kg4 NOK 570,-
kg5 NOK 645,-
kg6 NOK 720,-
kg7 NOk 795,-

Only matter is to pack it safe and with low weight.

That would be around $85 to $137 to us here in the states. How much are you asking for the Arrow?
