Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I really don't like slicks my self. Here with desert wind Monsoons lately there is washes of sand gravel textured dirt unto the pavement in spots. Not paying attention and going down hard is always a cause for checking my self.

All my builds lately are 26X2.7 or 24x3.0 with some kind of tread aired to about 42 psi or more. I like this size tire because it claws into the pavement better and smooths the ride. Everything has its trade offs. 26x1.75 is a great long lasting tire I just don't trust their grip as much personally.

Its a darn shame manufacturers make all these frames for the smaller width tires. Then of course there is the H.T. chain clearance ditty.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
