    Good that you don't have to buy all that crap, haha.

    Follow threads on losing the stock front tire. And yeah... since you have very little to add to an already loaded TW, a kickstart kit will round it all out.

    I'm going to be riding up in your neck of the woods with some friends in about a week, by Great Lake Sacandaga. The 13, 14 & 15. PM me if you are interested in meeting up. Going to be exploring some logging and fire roads between Northville & Speculator that we were on briefly during Dirt Daze last year.

    Two (2) XT225's, One (1) XT250, One (1) XR250L. I'll be leaving the TW home this trip unless a "buddy" needs it.
    That would be great. Sacandaga Lake is a great ride aound.

    The guy has a few bikes, Husqvarna 650 and a BMW 1200GS. He also flys planes so he does not get to ride much.

    The same type of folks that buy a KLR or DR650, set it up to travel to Peru and end up just going to the mall and Starbucks with it.

    He did all that and didn't put a different front tire on? Maybe it was just for showing off, which it would do very well. If you want to use it in the dirt, change it to a Shinko 241.
