    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.

    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.

    AltRider's Taste of Dakar 2018

    I love the video that says Jocelin is tough to keep up with, but a mini van blows by both of you!?!

    Hi from Oregon. Short novel enclosed... ?

    Hi Brian, Congrats on the new bike, my buddy just got the same one. It is very quick! He is still figuring out the electronics, it won't let him wheelie now. Check out the Pacific North Wet section of ADVRider forums for local rides in your area. There is some great riding all over, but Mt Hood is especially fun.

    Saddle sore doesn't sound like my kind of thing. I am more of a go fast for short periods of time type.

    Hi Flappy, I'm not sure if we are going to ride over on the big bikes or take my buddy's motorhome with a trailer and the 650/690s? We can exchange contact info or plan a meeting when plans finalize. Maybe we can have an XLADV meetup? What is "SS1K", maybe "Saddle Sore"?

    The site is very large and there are hundreds of miles of trails and fire roads to explore in the area.
