The bike came with these and the original set of MT21's in good shape. The A/T's are great road tires. They are tube tires. I got a Motoz Tractionator rear and I'm looking forward to having a reason to put it on. It is an aggressive looking thing.

Finally got a solid ride in today on my new to me '11 R. Been a bit of a work in progress to get it to where I want it, even though it came to me very well appointed. So far I've removed Kouba lowering link (which is for sale in Flea market...), added proper DOT knobbies (Scorpion Rally fr, XCMH rear), oil change, UNI air filter, RR upper tank bolts.

Here's a pic from the Uinta's today... All I can say is DAMN! this bike is everything I hoped and then some

Creedy how did you go fitting the cycra guards, I picked a set up from my local today and I reckon I got the wrong clamps... I remember reading they took some effort to fit, so I will keep trying over the next few arvos

Yep, they were a pain in the arse at first but with a little bit of patience, they fit using the CRM mounts. I have some BRP handguard mounts on the way so that should tidy things up a bit.

Almost, this was taken last weekend up around the Barrington tops in the Hunter NSW.

Yup, the BRP mounts are the way to go.

And I am grateful for the suggestion. Installed mine a few weeks back and they certainly save a ton of room on the bars for other nik naks.

Yeah mate I am really happy with it. I got the 2" riser, wasn't sure how I would like it being pretty short 5'8" but its great.
Very well made bit of kit
