Knot Me... maybe

Wanted 100-200cc +/-

Recommended Posts

your Northland patch roads should be slippery enough today to try them out, have a run to Waiotira and then back via the Paparoa /Oakley road. Should give you an idea of how good / bad / indifferent they are on metal and seal. At the end of it a bloody good ride no matter what the result.

Those Aprillas are going well but I suspect a few don't realise who now makes them, not that it should matter if they are going well as to do. I like the styling on their bigger roadie.

Went to give the Ruckus, the PS250, for a hoon but the key wouldn't turn. A slightly embarrassed team took it downstairs to sort it so I'll pop back later.

In real life it is a quirky for sure. I saw a pit bike of steroids that appears to be build more as a Mad Max battle wagon support vehicle than a urban commuter. It's got shocks in weird places, tie down points like you see on army transports, some very good cargo carrying spots and I'd think capability. I think I like it for it's 'work ute' like build but we'll see after I've had a hoon. Looks like 14" slightly wide wheels so drop on a set of Michelin Road 5's for their stickiness and give it arse.... ya hoo.

Picked up the Michelin Karoo 3's for the Duc. They will replace the current Pirelli Scorpion Trails fitted. Nice tyres which have been fine on dry gravel, grass etc but add any water and things go evil a little too fast, mind you they are 90/10's so not really made for hard core off seal. The Karoo 3's are 60/40's so let the fun begin.

12"rubber, 14" would be better, is there a later model?

I'm Ducing it to the farm next week to meet the builders so I'd like to have the Karoo 3's on when I go but busy days so we'll see. 

Ah ha, you're right the 250 are only 12", bigger would be nicer but it is not much more than a scooter with the looks even a mother may struggle to love so not a biggie :)
