So I have the day off work, somebody give me a call if you are up for a ride as the summer is coming to a close and I would like to make the best of it.

Edit: Day 2, perhaps better results, give me a call, or I start making calls

First day of Fall weather and we're already posting "Summer of 09" photos.




It's going to be a long winter.



(Unless you're going to Phoenix in a couple weeks to rent a GS )

So I got some Dyna Beads the other day and popped them in the tires after removing the wheel weights, and wow.

I'm amazed at the difference they made, the bike cruises everywhere from 0-130kph with little to no vibration, only at about 5000 rpm do my crashbars buzz, but that is understandable.

For those of us with tube type tires they are a great purchase because we can put them in the tubes and reuse the tubes, only downside is no tire sealant but if you reuse the tubes in multiple sets of tires you save a tonne on tire balancing.

Do a search for dyna beads Canada, as far as I know they are the only distributor in Canada $26 bucks shipped to my door (best price for balancing I have ever got was 20 for the pair).

Now I know this is late in the season for farkle suggestions but for next year look into it.

Dyna Beads

A friend at work has a small bike business on the side and he sells them. Will ask him his price when I see him next.

Dyna Beads

His price is $25.00 for three ounces. They come in two containers, one two ounce for the rear wheel, and one at one ounce for the front.

He is based out of Stonewall but can bring them to me at work if anyone is interested. He has lots in stock. No waiting.

Took off what was left of my rear tire (Karoo II) and installed the stock Battle Wings for the end of season riding. Reduced off road capacity, however the plan is to trailer the bike south and ride the slab when the cold weather sets in.

I will get some dyna beads for the new set of Karoo's when I install them in the spring.

That's the same deal I got 1 in front 2 in rear $26 for me though well worth it in my opinion. After taking the girlfriend out she confirms that it does indeed ride smoother.
