Went riding this weekend and got caught in the rain. It was a lot dirtier yesterday. The continuous rain cleaned it up pretty well but this is what was left today. Rain and clay make for a very slippery day!
however the rear tire was another story. I was sliding all over the place and my bike ended up upside-down at one point. Seriously! And I have been giving some serious thought to adding a mudflap on the front fender. Mind you, that mud I was riding through was only 1/2"-1" at most. I really wish I could have snapped a few shots yesterday, it was ridiculous.
I got out for close to a 400klm ride yesterday mainly to try out the new Seat Concepts seat I installed last week and got into some muck that would not fling off.It just kept gathering up on the tires.I had my hands full getting her out of there and somehow managed to keep her up.
There is a GoldenBoy under there somewhere!!
And for the record I was on the bike off and on all day(12 hrs) and the SeatConcepts seat is a major improvement over stock.
Nice job dubster and admiral! That is about what my tires looked like dubster. I'd have to rev it up to fling as much mud off as possible to make it to the end of the trail. My fiancee did not enjoy the mud roosting. She backed off quickly!
Next time, rain or shine, i'll have a take a pic of it at its dirtiest on the trail. I tend to get myself into these muddy situations more than i'd like. It was fun once I got somewhat used to the drifting and feel of impending death! Admiral, looks like you were riding through a wet volcano!
This was a few years ago down by Sicorro New Mexico. Oryx hunt by White Sands Missle Range. Both my TW's had enough mud build up that front tires quite turning and rears finally plugged up and killed engines. It was fun trying to find a stick sturdy enough to dig enough mud out to get underway again. Didn't make it very far before it happened again. Clay looked like tooth paste squishing out from the front of swingarm area.
This format is terrible.
Why do I have solid gray blobs I can't see through going down the posts?
The graphics are distracting.
I never cared about ads.
What does it take to get rid of this or to go to a different format.
This is the worst format in the world. Nobody should use this format...
Oh Great Alpha Nerds of the TW200 Forum! I beseech thee for some of thy hard-earned wisdom.
My 1993 TW really has a hard time starting in the cold. It's got a new carb, clean gas, and new battery but just doesn't like it when it gets a little nippy outside (30 F). In fact, it won't start at...
Anyone ever heard of GPR exhuast? 125cc and 200cc???
Pricey, but cool.
Just wondering, who carries and uses a Rotopax fuel container and, what size? I'm dangerously close to pushing the order button on Amazon for one of these little 1 gallon containers. And of course, a mount too. There are of course, a few dozen imitations as well to consider. But...
