The tag doesn't say you have to wash it, so I think the winner should be the "dirtiest" bike in a car wash...

Okay, bonus points for dirt.

You guys are too much. If I didn't just take a shower myself I'd go rip it up out here (almost literally my back yard - 1/2 mile as the crow flies from my driveway) then grab the tag.



But I'm just not feeling like getting that dirty today.

That looks a LOT like it needs some fresh KTM tracks in it. Just sayin'.

I need a new front tire first. After really really really liking the Shinko 244 front on the F8 I decided to try the more robust Shinko 700 which is rated for heavier loads and higher speeds.

Unfortunately the 700, while a good dry dirt front, doesn't stand up to that road and washes out in the mud. It'll get you through it but you won't have as much fun as you would when you crank the throttle and dig in the the rear. The 244 handled that road like a champ, navigating the mud and rocks with precision and confidence at a fair clip.

I'm contemplating ordering another 244 and dumping my half worn 700 front. It sucks not being able to ride how I want to. Out of all the fronts I've ever tried the 244 is about the best "dual sport" type. Only bad thing about the 244 front is that it's soft and will only last around 6000 miles. It howls like a banshee towards the end of it's life but it gets even better in the dirt the more you wear it down.

Washing Machine Grab

The bike went to sleep in the mud yesterday even though you can't tell from the pic...definitely not clean.

New Tag: Big Washing Machine

For those days when you have a large load.

This tag is a: Truck Wash (for washing Big Rigs, Long Haul Trailers, RVs etc)



(In case anyone is wondering, no this isn't a file tag. Nor is it in Iowa. It's about 30 miles from where I grabbed the car wash this morning in NC)
