Thank you all!

I was able to present Ned with a nice check for the funds raised from Neduro Artwork print purchases so far. He thanked me, but that thanks belongs to you guys and gals, so I wanted to pass that on. Thank you!

Ah, sorry.

I changed tires and mousses every other day, roughly. Universally, the stuff I took off was not used up... I had stuff along, I put it on the bike.

I'm looking forward to getting the container back and having fresh meat for a good long time to come. The worst tire I took off in Dakar looks 10x better than the destroyed rubber on my SE as it sits.

Is there any reason to not run mousses during multi day, out in the middle of nowhere rides? Or is it just easier to take extra tubes?

I'm over having air in my tires. I run mousses all the time, especially for multi day middle of nowhere stuff like Baja or etc.

But, they require some care- they need to be well lubed, and only with the correct silicone based lubricant, not tire soap like some people use, and they shouldn't be left to sit forever, baking in the sun, or etc.

For a bunch of reasons, chief among them durability, I think the Mefo Mousse is significantly superior to the Michelin.

One of the things on my list, once I get a little caught up, is to do a review on all the equipment I used.

Ned, so great to meet you! Good time!

About the Mefo Mousse, I was talking to Jason at MX1West last week (your link above) about this... but what do you think about using them at highway speeds on pavement for general dual sport purposes on a 400 lb total bike (including gear)? Obviously you did this on a lighter bike for what you said is half of 5000 miles, but I know they aren't designed for this necessarily. Would heat be the main issue? What is their failure mechanism, could it cause a crash like a blown tube (I'm assuming not).

I think Americans are not used to mousse and I've never researched them, and obviously this could be a thread of its own, but would love to hear your thoughts.
