    Heavy flywheel and a gnarly pipe will do wonders to tame it down for the woods.

      Yup. Both of those are on the top of my list.

      • Here's the latest additions. BMW S1000XR and Husqvarna FE350. Still have also have the WR250R, which I need to get a picture of with it's fancy new plastics and graphics. I'll get a better action shot of the Husky soon. It is a little dirtier now but I still haven't put tubliss and real dirt tires on it yet. I'm roasting these TKC80's off on gravel and dirt roads around here.

        • If you never used tubliss before... it takes a LOT of weight opposite of the rim lock to balance out the wheels. But mines smooth as glass up to 90 running a M5B.

            Thanks, I still have a few of the motion pro spoke weights to use. I put them on the WR and it's buttery smooth up to it's top speed, which is probably only 75 or so. I still am not sure which tires I want to get. The trails close to here are mostly clay and go from hard with rocks and roots to muddy and bust your butt slick every few hundred feet. Dealer recommended AT81's at 5-9 lbs depending on roads incl. or not. My biggest motivation isn't as much to haul, but not bust my butt. I'm also in the camp of paying extra for more frequent tire swaps for more control when it gets slick.
            I use D606 and MT21 on the WR, but I want more grip and compliance on this bike, and I don't really care about DOT as long as it works well, even though I will be on the roads a little. I know Tubliss isn't covered for road use either, but I've seen plenty of miles of it holding up just fine at reasonable speeds and pressures. I need a good hand pump for my tail bag though.

                I was running the maxxis desert it. It doesn’t say for off-road use only and has a MC stamp on it. Really good tires, and I did a good bit of road riding with them and it didn’t chew them up. My dealer gave me an inspection sticker with them and tubliss installed

                • For what it is worth...not running tubliss but recently put some Mitas M-23 Rockhoppers on my KTM and have been happy.
                  They are rated as a 60 offroad-40 onroad tire but are very aggressive imo.
                  And cheap!!!

                    • I bought some Dynamoto Stands. I was curious and now that I'll be riding to work more often, doing the car, car ,bike, bike swap was going to get tedious. with these I can push the bike around with 1 hand and spin it on the spot in my thin carport. They will make life a lot easier. They make it real easy to get the bike through skinny gaps and roll over almost anything, including toes.... yep that hurt.

                      I've kept my sharp racing stands for doing work on the bike as well.

                      • Thank you for posting the stands, and keep us updated as to how you like them. MotoGP is using a more traditional looking stand that has the same swivel capability and I've been looking for them online, but can't find them. I've seen these, but the price is still pretty high.

                        • The build quality on these is phenomenal. They are built extremely well and over engineered! They will last a lifetime or two. I thought my Sharp Racing stands were built well compared to some others I have seen (the Sharp stands are also fantastic stands), but these take the top prize for sure.

                          My father in law has the Sharp stand with the trolley wheels on it, but that doesn't roll over concrete joins anywhere near as smoothly as these do.

                          • My Cortech summer commuting gloves were getting beyond worn out. So I looked in the closeouts at Motorcyclegear.com and picked up 2 pairs. The AGV Aeromesh Gloves on the right, $12. And the AGV Sport Mercury Gloves on the left $21.

                            For that low a price I figured I'd buy 2 pairs. The Aeromesh seem really light, I haven't worn them riding yet. Might be OK for the grocery store but I probably won't wear them to work as part my commute involves speeds over 70mph (usually). The Sport Mercury gloves are still light and thin but seem to have a little more material in the palm and protection for the knuckles and 3M reflective material.

                            Neither is as good as my long leather gloves. But commuting in the summer I trade off some protection for ventilation.

                            • Harbor Freight Lift after Andy posted the sale for $299.

                              So far so good and this is a game changer for sure, it will make working on bikes FUN again!
