    Thanks! Been planning/scheming this thing for like seven years. Definitely a bucket list sort of thing.

    Put new tires, tubes, and brakes on both the bikes. Now we just need to get them up to the hills to play cuz they're less fun down here in town!

    Supermoon - very cool, keep bringing that viddy.

    I was literally saying " lane splitting " right before you started.

    No MLB action near Jackson Hole, but if ya need a place to crash and work on the moto you're welcome here.
    And the local riding is amazing.

    Ride smart, stay safe.

    Talked to a guy yesterday who was trying to get a SurRon registered as street legal here in Summit county. Wonder how that'll work out. He seemed to think it could be done.

    Thanks Djongo! If I come through JH I will definitely reach out.

    Yeah, not sure why it took me so long to do it. Turned into not a big deal as soon as I did. On a Philly-Boston-NYC-DC stretch now and I am wishing I had that option. Lol

    Has anyone here ridden a Kenda Big Block and can compare it to anything else?

    My Versys 300 came with Big Blocks on it - I'm new so I don't really know any better, but I find them pretty squirmy and wander a lot on pavement, especially godforsaken grooved concrete. Although I want to get into riding more dirt eventually realistically I'm almost always on pavement right now. Kenda claims these are designed for 60% pavement 40% dirt but I'm not sure I buy that given the big knobby tread.

    The bike also came with the stock Continental TKC 60s which I'm sure would be much better on pavement but look completely worthless for dirt.

    I'm wondering about something like a Mitas E-07? They market them as a 50/50 tire but the chevron pattern sure seems like it'd be a lot friendlier on pavement to me...

    Pretty sure we r way north of your itinerary, but you're welcome to crash at the base of the Adirondacks at our place. Might be a mandatory barefoot waterski session though.

    Thanks for that! Will definitely reach out if I end up that way. Iíll have to pass on the barefoot though. Fastest way to end this trip would be for me to get behind a boat to do anything but surf

    Look for a tire with a center line of contact for roadworthy-ness. Even intermittent centerline patterns with "some" spacing are road friendly. Graduate to a more dirt worthy tire as needed.

    Determine how much of the cross section of the tire you will use on the road and how much otherwise. Look for a pattern that appeals to your current understand and put less weight on the PR Department mumbo-jumbo

    Get an opportunity to wheel around in the dirt on your more road worth tires. Let some air out

    New shoes this morning. Got almost 8k out of the OEM tires, which is ok I guess. They only had Harley tires that would fit my Africa Twin and werenít like 80/20 dirt tires.

    Got to ride Deals Gap today. What a great ride. Took it easy since I have never been there and Iím on a fully loaded ADV, but worth the couple hour detour for sure.

    Nice, and on fresh rubber to boot.

    Hot there? Grippy roads?

    Yeah, no traction issues, but I was babying it. I saw 109 into ATL yesterday, so this was a nice and cool 98 when I rode it

    I took a Zero for a ride the other day. First time on an electric bike. The torque and constant power from 0 to top speed is wild. No speed shifting necessary...or available .
    Multiple driving modes including "rain" which would be interesting. I was in "canyon" mode mostly ripping around the Santa Cruz mountains. The regen is heavy in that mode therefore I didn't even need to use the brakes. It was wild. Such a different experience and very enjoyable.
    I was questioning whether I'd like not shifting, but it didn't bother me. Just twisting the throttle to launch forward at any speed without having to downshift was smooth and fast.

    Have to admit I'm intrigued by these. I shuttled a moto trail this weekend (on my MTB) that was fucking awesome, but it would be a pain in the ass to do it without a shuttle and I'm only going to get so many free shuttles out of the wife. Saw two dudes pedaling up, looked like it sucked and they didn't make it to the top. Then I saw a dude on an e-bike going up and that looked a lot more reasonable but since e-bikes are only allowed on motorized trail around here why not just get a moto? If only a Sur Ron was street legal...

    What's the lightest, cheapest, singletrack capable, street legal, motorized two wheeled contraption?
