Thanks for the report. Sounds like the weather was OK. You are to be commended for riding the Superman trails. The year we rode the weather was perfect - we mistakenly got on the SM trails and it kicked our ass...

Still the area is fantastic.

Thank you Mike, sounds like a challenging ride that I'm sure was fun. I've been running the Tubliss system in both ends for a year now & like it

Any one planning anything this weekend. I know its Mothers day but that's on Sunday afternoon for me!
May be up for a ride on Saturday morning. Maybe something a little closer to P'cola like Hutton or Brox?

+2 on the Tubliss system! Run them on both of my bikes for over a year now and have done a couple of extreme trips and have not had an issue yet!

Knock on wood

Its been years since I have had a flat!

I really cant recall the last time a flat ruined my day.

I keep good tires and have heavy duty tubes and keep about 12-15psi on rear and 15-18 on front.

Maybe I am not aggressive enough to rip the tires off the rim or pinch tubes on ROCKS or roots...

but then again Im an old fart and don't need to be aggressive...


Now watch me have a flat next time out!!!

If I do Im blamin' Gimmie

Tubliss

Heavy duty tubes ARE a good way to fight flats BUT they are heavy & that is UNSPRUNG weight!! The Tubliss system eliminates tubes & rim locks which is about 6-7 lbs. per wheel which is a GOOD thing And....you can run any pressure you want no matter how low

A good day to be me

I just got back from an 80 mile street ride w/ my brother in law. I was on my '03 FJR and he was on his '09 Connie 14. We left Evergreen, rode up AL83, back down to Monroeville, and across Drewry road (much of which is newly paved). The temp was perfect and the smell of the honeysuckle was epic!

Got back to the casa just in time for lasagna, salad, french bread and sweet tea.

Also got my Kathy pannier liners and Wolfman tank bag today. Ready for Barber's in June!!!!!!

Good for you! I love it when folks have a good day.

Wasn't a bad day for me but then again I wasn't riding either.

Mad, google "Tubliss"....they are nothing like Bib. Weighs about 1 lb. per wheel. Moose extra HD tubes are 7.5 lbs. each. The small inner liner locks the tire to the rim(360 degree rim lock). You can run ZERO pressure & not spin the tire on the rim. Desert riders LOVE them because you can get a flat 50 miles from the truck & ride it back without the tire coming off the rim

Have a set of the new 2nd Gen Tubliss waysherr mentioned with the stiffer carcass that feel and look great. They are still sitting on my shop floor, plan to install during the WR250R's 1st tire change.

They have a beadlock built right in. Google them. The only complaint is occasional slow leak around the carcass to rim, which is usually due to debris or gouged rims. They work as well as they are installed.
Really looking forward to installing them.
Bought them from R&R Racing on 9 Mile Rd.
