Exactly where I'm at now in terms of mileage. The rear is just about bald and the front about 1/2 worn out.

Man, I sure hope you are right and they start to wear slower. If I get even 2k miles, I'll be happy!

I just got a new set of 606s for my WR.

How do you air up for the pavement ride home? Mini compressor? CO2 cartridges?

10 dollar slime mini compressor. I rigged up a marine grade 12v adapter and zip tied it to the handlebars. The pump ridEs with the tubes.

Also my dr is all of maybe 30 horsepower. I'm sure my wr would eat rear tires a lot faster.

Gas station (if nearby) or Blackburn mountain bike pump.

I was operating on this definition... a rascal; rogue; scamp- which loosely translates to "FF" in Armenian.


Ruffian out.

Good ride yesterday, took "Jimmy's Trail" for the first time.....and busted my a$$ lugging the Dakar up that rocky single track, but it was worth every bead of sweat! Fire roads look better, seems they took out alot of the loose shards of granite. Headed down Indian Truck to Tom's Farms, then back up over.

Swiller, you did good! That was an awesome ride. Glad that Seawolfe met up with us, of course AFTER the challenging stuff! By chance, Seawolfe and I met another ADV rider , Fudgypup, at Keans Coffee in Newport. He asked me to pass on hellos to everybody! I guess he has been banned for awhile!.

Hey! I resemble that remark! Actually, and this is strickly an observation, dude had a hard time getting that big pig of a bike up over the curb to park on the sidewalk next to my little xr600! He did say nothing but nice things about everyone....
