    - 17 " front and rear - 3.5" width on front - 4.25" on rear - heavy duty spokes and nipples - offset the rear spokes a fraction such that you avoid chain rub. - gearing: 15 44 is typical - GP wet on the front Good luck Mitch

    N.Y. State Motorcycle Road Test

    Advice, read the manual..... When stopping, always leave the bike in gear, clutch in and left foot down. Always have your right foot on the brake. Turning: Left turn, left arm out. Right turn, left arm out and bent at the elbows so you make an "L". Apart from that, ride smooth and do rev it or lift the front wheel.... The best way to pass...

    Let us all pray for lost souls

    Dear All, For those among us who have friends, relatives and persons involved, I am truly sorry. My heart reaches out to all those lost souls with great sadness. To those who have lost their lives due to the cowardess of others, may you rest in peace and enjoy the after-life with great passion. For those rescue departments who have lost their lives trying to save others, my respect and admiration reaches out. To those who caused this unholy horror, your time will come. You will be judged two fold. By mankind and by God and may their suffering be far greater than what we can all imagine. I officially heard the news at 11:00pm Melbourne time last night. I have not slept and have been glued to the television since. I am tired with depression. Let us all please say a prayer for innocence lost. God Bless, goodbye and love to all. Mitch

    Roadracing tires?

    Hey there Ken, I have been racing SM for more than three years. To answer your question, try the following: - Front, 21", Dunlop Gripster or Pirelli Equivalent - Rear, 19", You can fit a flat track tire. Now, make sure you warm the front up as this is a relatively hard tire. Ride agressive, meaning put your weight all the way forward to avoid the front wheel dissapearing on you. Gearing 15/42 actually gave me about 200km/h, but the bike was heavily modified. Oh, one more thing, if you want to back it in.... Approach the corner at high revs. Just when your about to apoply the front breaks and turn in, gear down 2 gears real quick (using the clutch) and then release the clutch (not all the way) resulting in engine compression/breaking. This is what allows you to back it in. BUT, by all means, practise. Good luck and have fun. Mitch

    Moab video

    Hey Bill, That must have been an old video... Now-a-days, we are surrounded by a sea of Orange. Those darn slow orange things just get in the way all the time. We have started using them are ramps or berms, but are getting blood and oil all over our bike... Mitch

    supermotard wheels

    Guys, keep away from cast iron wheels. Stick to spoked wheels as these are significantly lighter. (Trust me, I have been doing this for 4 years) Good luck Mitch

    Steering

    Hey there all, Look, i am by no means an expert/professional rider. I can hold my own on MX, but not that great on trails. In any case, my advice, hope it helps. 1. Perform all the sugegstions that Hick made 2. You have to ride this bike agressively to get the best out of it! Cornering should be agressive with your crotch on the tank refiller and leg extended as far forward as the forks. 3. All else will come with practise and patience. it is a lighter bike that the XR, so you will feel like the front is washing out. 4. 15psi seems a little high.... Mitch
