If you're reading this and you're local to me or willing to make the ride I have 2 used Continental TKC80 fronts and 1 used Dunlop D606 front that would be fine for a weekend in Death Valley. They're 90/90-21 which fit a number of bikes. I'll donate the tires to 3 new riders that want some traction for the event. Please keep in mind that they're a softer compound and will not last a lot of pavement riding from now until the event in March! I probably put a couple thousand miles on each tire as it is, but if you're considering running bald tires I'd much rather give you these instead.

There's a great little motorcycle shop right around the corner from me if you need an install. But again, please don't wear them down before the event since that will defeat the whole purpose of the donation.

I'm located in Fountain Valley, CA 92708.

First 3 posts of "DIBS" (with the tire you want) get the tires. I'll confirm the 3 and you can come by and pick them up.



Let's ride!

Wow, those 21" tires got gobbled up fast ... all this talk about first timers off road, thought for sure there would be a couple of big GS riders interested in grabbing some free nobs to try out.

TKC 80 - 50% tread
Mitas E09 - 60% tread
Heidenau K60 - 70% tread (has some bead leak issues, loses 2 - 4 psi/day)



Located in Hunitngton Beach

todd, dibs on the one with the rim still on.....

hey the tkc i can use but i'll have others have them. no rush for me since the front tire on my hp2 (yes, i went 19") will last another 4 years.

On another note, I do have rental bikes available through my school. But, and this is a big "BUT", we only rent them during schools where they are "observed" due to the nature of how people tend to treat rental equipment and what really happens on dirt bike rides. I'd consider renting under the right conditions, so maybe a PM is in order if that someone is still looking. Plus the bikes are set up for long distance off-road (big gas tanks) so there is a plus there.

daym.............

looks like as long you keep the pig moving, no problem sinking in the soft sand... there got to be some black magic....

I can stop in the sand any time I'm not pointed too steeply uphill. Keeping moving is about the fifth most important thing in our list of things you need to know about riding in sand. And number one is...?

You didn't guess it, it is STOP!

When anything starts to go wrong you stop. Not crash and certainly not gas it! Gas it leads to crashing harder.

Being balanced on the bike (NOT over the back) and controlling the bike with the throttle and steering it through the footpegs (which can't be done very well while sitting) come into play next.

Oh yes, tires are very important, as mentioned earlier and we have a post about that here: http://jimmylewisoffroad.com/2012/12/03/999/

J,

Just a suggestion, handful of bikes with a predetermined rate that includes you doing a DV ride/clinic specific to those renting the bikes.

Others would be excluded from the ride unless invited by you directly.

2 birds one shot, rentals and teaching at the same time.

Just a thought. I am sure some of the N00Bs would be all over something like this.

Well I missed the dibs, bummer.

Replacing tires is another thing I need to learn. As of right now I know how to find my way to the dealer, hand over a credit card, and spend the next month eating PB&J to pay for them!

Every once in a while the dealer near my house has clinics on this kind of stuff, maintenance, and other minor repairs. Trouble is I never seem to hear about them until they are thanking people for coming!

Where do you live, there are enough people around here that getting someone to show you how to do it should be easy enough to do.

Where are you located? If in my neck of the woods I could be persuaded to have a beer, give you some pointers and supervise at my place. If you ride a bike in the dirt, it is a pretty important skill to learn.

Rob,
