Heated grips are a must for me the people that diss them don't actually ride anywhere when it's cold...I have used the mitas on my 650 bmw they are good on tar and work ok off-road in all but deep mud... good compromiseHeated grips are ace and for the 400 grams that they weigh (guess the weight) its a no brainer.
I love the rally thing but its really hard deciding whats the best bike for it, a modified EXCF or something bigger like a 690.
Haha I didn't know if you would remember me Andrew! yes we made it round half of the Thetford loop before heading home (by road as we was knackered by then...) I would love a meet up and ride round there again when this shit is over!I bumbed into Dibbs up here a while back, he and a matey had ridden up on the road bikes (not entirely sure if they managed a few trails on the way up as well) might be good to sort something out.
Hahahahaha yes that was a memorable day! Well im still draggin the AT around lol... but as its now worth fuck all i dont get upset at the odd lay down lol.... see you soonHi Dibbs - l remember you from the 'Essex Boys' ride that BDA organised ..... you admirably dragged your AT around and everyone else was on enduro bikes ...... another good day!
Lee are you saying that the E09's are no good? I have a long time before my first rally and still haven't made up my mind which bike I will use so I'm really just getting the 690 setup for some summer riding in the UK and some lanes.I tried to do a rally once on tyres like that you are wasting your time also no good using tubes or tubliss on a bigger bike off road you will constantly be fixing puntures. Metzeler six days front and Maxxis IT rear with mousses is what you need for off road, fit them trail tyres on another set of wheels for the matcho look outside starbucks if thats what floats your boat.
