Ran across a "Rusty" character a month or two back. He was moving back down here from up your way. ;)

Scramber set up?



I understand the dilemma. Correct spelling takes time that could be spent licking the windows on the short bus.

No. Normal street Bonnie.  I had a front sitting around from my Tracker project of a few years ago. Decided to use it and just buy a 705 rear. Cost is pretty reasonable on 705's.

Our bikes come from the factory with Metzler Tourances which are a 90% street 10% dirt tire. I replaced mine with the same a few years ago but this year when I replaced the tires on both bikes I wanted something a bit more aggressive and settled on the 705s. Very happy with them wearing well so far and they ride better than the Metzlers which felt like you could feel every stone in the road with. They had a very stiff casing.

We get about 70 with the BMWs... Fuel light comes on around 110 miles and it takes 3 gallons to fill the 4 gallon tank... one gallon reserve.

Another 89 mpg at fill up, so I guess I'm consistent.   We got the boat out and ready, but that's as far as we've gotten that.   :mellow:

Did you get your boat out any more?   We did finally get our boat out on Labor Day weekend.   Wanted to run the old gas out of it.   Was a nice relaxing day on the lake.   Now we have to winterize it.   :wacko:
