Flat track tires

just ordered some flattrack tires for my XR100

http://www.tiresunlimited.com/ALL%20...trail_wing.htm

one of the few that are available for 16'' tires
we used them during Rich Oliver's Mystery school

I should have them mounted up for the 2nd annual JoMoCo meet
I will be using a knobbie front & the 120/90x16 TW40

You should be mounting slicks in order to even out the playing field!

Just ordered front and rear.
Jennings this weekend, weather forecasts rain, I'm taking the 150 and will have a rain bike now. Yes, a CRF150F at Jennings in the rain, could it be more fun???

I think not.

Sounds like you are going to have a blast rain or shine.

pretty well, 1:57.27 was the best time on the 150 and I had 5 laps in the 1:57's. I got bumped out of Expert to Intermediate while riding the 150. Even passed a couple people in 4-5-6, they weren't exactly pleased.

1:31.15 was my best time on the Husqvarna which was a little better than par with the other tards. 1:33 - 1:34 was my average.

3 days is a long time to be at the track.

SWEET! I didn't think you would get it out of the two minute mark. Got pics?

not sure, the photographer has thousands to sort through. It'll probably take her a week or longer to get through them. Hope so though, it was really goofy on the 150. Would be great fun if everyone were on one.

most of the 150 didn't turn out to well, here's one that did.

Would love to try this on a much smaller track, like a gokart track.

That's awesome. The fun factor would be tripled on a kart track with about ten other 125/150s out there mixing it up.
