I love you so much I want your babies but mate....have you any idea what they ride in in Ireland. it's called peetbog. just put it in a search fella. he needs to be doing 3mph in first, no clutch, engine at idle, him off the bike to take the weight off, walking next to it pushing it out of one "peetbog" after another after another. the hills are like one-in-three with loose loam soil and no grip whatsoever! streams, puddles, brookes, washed over rocks, no grip or little grip.

I would never go higher than 13/52 over there, I run 13/52 in East Anglia and it's as flat as a witches tit ferchrissakes!

never mind

Thanks Rainero and Taffy and everyone!

Taffy you're pretty much on the money haha. Video for reference, although I prefer a bit drier than this:

I hear you. Looks like some good single track in the video. And a wet day with the Peetbogs.

Its a different world here in Ca.
We all take what we can get.

I just need to look a little closer at poster locations.
Thanks from mcljot

not a bad description was it! especially at the beginning of the video!

Pollo, we do enjoy this, we dress appropriately and enjoy it. its the peripheral stuff we don't do: we don't barbie, we don't meet famaly's riding, we don't meet unfit people (grossly unfit) we don't 'hang about'.

generally, the atmosphere is more circumspect.

regards

Taffy

Looks like the front will fit without too much drama. There's a weird Acerbis branded spacer thing that came with the wheels, looks more like a mount for a disc guard than a spacer. With that installed it looks OK but without it looks like I'd need some other spacer. Pictured in the second photo.

other may know better but it looks like a disc guard doesn't it. the 2003+ bke has the same spacer left as right.
