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

You can get super-tubes for $5 each at Niagaracycle. I don't use the slime or any sealant either. Just get some tires with some tread thickness or puncture belts, and the thick tubes ("thorn resistant" tubes). They help cushion the ride more too.

Your best bet is to use the $15 a piece "for down hill racing" mountain bike inner tubes which are very thick walled and install quality tire liners as well. The cost is high, but the dependability is high too. Ya get what ya pay for.

Some folks like the Slime brand self healing inner tubes instead of the down hill tubes, but I am not a fan of the sticky goo slime product.
