Changed the tires on the KLX today, the wide front tire made it ride like a dump truck. I have only taken a short ride on it so far, but it seems like a good decision thus far. If I end up not liking it I am going to purchase a set of Distanzias, but I really enjoy playing on the trails.

Before 4.60 Front 5.10 Rear

Now 3.00 Front 4.60 Rear

Cycle Solutions rescues damsel in distress

The fine folks at Cycle Solutions off of 33 in Gordonsville ... easy to find, next door to the BBQExchange ... put almost an hour of their time into helping me out this afternoon, and then wouldn't take my cash when I offered to compensate them for their time.

Next time I pass through the area with empty bags I'll fill them with something useful from their shelves. Hopefully some of y'all will do same.

I had Cycle Solutions change my tires yesterday, it's a great place, the pricing is always very good also. I recommend them to anyone who asks me where to have a bike serviced, in my vicinity that is.

Anybody know who the green KLR was on RT 60 west bound this afternoon?

Looks to me like it had everything and the kitchen sink on it!

Nothing so dramatic. The bike just had a fade to black experience.
