    Just got this setup back from a demo TL we'd sponsored for a photo shoot in Europe, Wheels are brand new and have only had rotors/sprocket bolted up to them to put them under the bike, but they've never been ridden. Tires are a set we had in the shop, 85 street miles on them. Wheels and tires...

    Chaparral is having a great sale on Maxxis tires. I've currently got their IT's (don't know if they are the desert or standard model) on my 350 and very impressed with how they are holding up. They were used when I got them and I've done about 300 miles of pavement and quite a bit of rocky off...

    Right rear blew out on me on my way back to school and tore up the right side of the truck:bawling Not so terriably upset about having to buy new tires, but very upset about the damage to the truck. The whole wheelwell area is crumpled and the bed from tail light forward is dinged up - even...

    So i went and ordered a set of Maxxis Supermaxx to put some new rubber between myself and the road, and found out that the Supermaxx is a discontinued tire. Since I had already paid for them plus shipping, the shop recommended a tire brand called Full Bore tires. Anyone ever ran these? Good...

    Ok I am currently running a set of Metzler M3's on my 98 TLR. I love the way they handle, they do a great job. however I don't get much milage out of them. I'm trying to find a tired with the handling the same or similar to the M3 but gives me more miles.

    I brought the new bike in for inspection and they freaked at the tires (I expected it as the rear was squared off and the front scalloped). I had them put on michelin pilot sport-touring ( my riding style is old-man sport touring:laugh) and what a nice ride they gave on the way home. I never...

    Anyone ever heard of Tomahawk brand tires? A friend saw these and was thinking about buying these for his Gixxer. The web page touts these tires as being "remolded". Sounds like a fancy word for retread to me. Here is the link; http://www.compacc.com/prod.cfm/cid/1701001/pid/8996
