Working out. He does the occasional iron man. Mtn biking is also one of the best workouts to condition for off road riding. I just bought a mtn bike for that very reason.

That great! obviously the person was too lazy to lift his KLR onto the bed. I've been meaning to keep this a secret until I'm done, but the is my newest project. yes, those are CBR wheels.



If this works, soon I'll be able to have a set of street and light offroad tires and a set of wheels with hardcore DOT knobbies. Which leads me to ask Biker4ever how he still likes those MT43's that caught my eye last summer.

should be fun, I have a Michelin trials competition on my WR. I do like it so far, during the first single track ride, on the wet leaves and needles it was a little lacking on bite. In the ratings in Motorcycle Superstore they had some comments like that but otherwise all the comments were excellent. the DOT might have an issue with it riding on the road so I would NEVER do that. Isn't kind of hard to ride when your bike is in pieces?

It's nice to see Toadl has a professional technician working on the project as opposed to him doing the work!

How did he get in the picture? I kept telling my wife, "he can't hurt anything its a dirtbike." I didn't think about how many parts could be lost.

Arrowhead Rider, why don't you head west on the 20th and meet up with us.

I'm hoping to ride out with c-zulu but need to see what's happening first. It sounds like a lot of fun.
