This is my new to me 2005 950 S. I've had it for about 6 weeks now, and every week I add something to it. The latest is a new paint job.

Thanks!

Their definatley tubeless wheels.

I've seen it done with aprillia caponard wheels but their 19 front and 17 rear. I think.
Apparently not recommended for the front wheel if off roading.

Yes, may be its me and my riding skills, but I feel definitely more comfortable with 21" front wheels than with 19" for offroad...

New to me the idea of the width on the front tyre of the pic for offroad...

Took a little spin up the road for a haircut after work...cell phone pic, didn't have a real camera along.





Might be time to change that front tire....the cupping's so bad you can see it in silhouette..

I'm curious how your brake lines are run. I have an old 950 with 990 brake lines. I have then run similar to yours, but I zip-tied them to the SX85 guards.
