Thanks. Yeah like you said the riding over here is wild. Rules of the road are seemingly few and far between but some how it just works (err..most of the time) . The reason why some people are just sitting there while others cut up the road on the wrong side is simply a matter of who is being brave, who is being dumb, and who just wants to get going. I have at times been known to ride the wrong side of the street and other times I just filter my way foward as far as I can then sit and wait for the light to change. It just depends on the mood of the moment.

Vee rubber vrm-163 tire feedback

Looking to possibly purchasing Vee Rubber VRM163 Tires for my XR650L Seems to be reasonably priced has anyone ever heard or run any of these tires?
Supposedly they are a 80% road and 20% dirt
excellent compound for long mileage
siddewal construction to reduce punctures and better weight carrying capacity

Never heard of Vee Rubber before. Check 'em out and let us know!

TG - dang, that doesn't look good. I know Jman's been riding with a crack in his wheel for a while, but I don't think it's that big. Is it front or back?

its up to you, it was recomended to me. I try to minmize the amount of time the front wheel is touching the ground. That crack is a little bigger than mine. I would probably drill it.
