    Honda CRF450L thread

    Sorry, but this thing is a tanker! I'll stick with my plated XR650R, which is about the same weight and will wheelie away from it.

    2021?!? We'll be riding electric bikes by then... 😆

    As with my predictions, I guess we'll see...

    I think the KTM790 will be much lighter and faster!

    Best Small Tents?

    That is great, but I don't think your 990 is going through that snow?!

    Motoz Tires

    I must admit, most of the miles on that last 805 were road miles. I think spinning on gravel would kill it much quicker. But even so, I was very impressed with the wear and it still had a little knob height in the center.

    Motoz Tires

    Just mounted a new set and was railing some twisty pavement this weekend. Also tore up some gravel roads and these tires rock! And I got 8k miles out of the last 805 rear!?!

    Who's up here in the extreme (non-Alaskan) PNW?

    Hi Katoom, welcome, you'll love Bonneville, it is unlike any other racing and the people are super friendly! I am well North of you, but I have a buddy that puts on some great rides out of the Portland area that you might be interested in. I'll be doing a couple of them, here is a link: http://nwadvriders.com/

    Best Small Tents?

    I am tall and cheap, so I use this $25 Walmart 7'x7' tent and it works great. I sleep diagonal and there is still room for all my crap! https://www.walmart.com/ip/Ozark-Trail-3-Person-Dome-Tent/55036167

    How are you securing your bike in the shop for service?

    You must not have been a roadracer, we have those on all our big bikes! I also have another stand with the steering stem post, but I usually just use an ATV jack, like mike showed above, if I need to do front tire or suspension work. It mates nicely with the skid plate, your oil pan should not be exposed from below, even if you live on a sand bar!

    Motoz Tires

    I like paddles! And I have about 6k on my 805s now, probably won't make 8k, but for the price, I will probably get more of them!

    Motoz Tires

    I've been very happy with mine and railing around a lot of cars on the outside of on ramps! Haven't found the limit yet.

    Really, what is the other 10% for? Or is it only for riding at 90%?!

    What makes an adventurebike?

    I think ground clearance and suspension are the big factors. I consider the Multi and the Versys ADV bikes. 17" wheels are not great, but they aren't a major limiting factor IMO. I've raced Supermoto against Jeremy McGrath and Jeff Ward and those guys could go faster on dirt with 17" slicks than I ever could on brand new knobbys!

    Hammock or Tent?

    Can't sleep on my back, hammocks are out.
