Thanks 2slow. I should get a changer myself, but for the amount I've been riding lately, its hard to justify.

Craig i'm in Mandurah so not so familiar with shops in the north so you may have to phone around. I know Peter that owns Tyres For Bikes in Vic Park runs Mousses himself so would probably sell/fit for you.
I bought a tyre changer after years of fumbling on the garage floor mainly so i could keep the Mousses lubed as everyone says heat is the enemy.

Thanks guys. I've been camping with the family a lot and my kids have an LT50 now, so focusing on getting their confidence up. I borrowed someones wheel with a mousse at a rally after getting a puncture, this kid i borrowed it off is a good enduro rider and he's pretty pleased with the mousse. Thanks again.

Thanks for an awesome ride last Saturday Inver and Cass. Twisting, winding tracks through the Pine Forrest Including a few beach runs, it was a great day out.

Hey Craig, its been a while, I thought you may have gone back home to south of the border. Not sure if anyone runs one here, a few of us run the Tubliss system with good results. I remember Roostermick used to run one and he said he used to remove it and apply lube every couple of rides to make last longer.

G'day riders, I haven't posted on here in quite a while. I'm thinking of running a Mousse tube in the rear. Can anyone recommend where to get one fitted?

Ride report

Lano 250

Riders Cass, Inver, KTMJames and a few new crusty Simo,Chris and Garry
Posted drinkers WRpaul and JNR

The ride was callled Quinn's to Lano and return. It's half of the Jurien bay 2 day ride we do early in the year.

Weather man was saying 30c and sunny with a chance of a thunder storm Friday night before hand.
So just to make sure we have some dust supression Cass performed a rain dance all I can say it worked.

A quick riders meeting and a run down on the corner man system, and we were off by 8:00.

Cass leads us off in the north east duration in pursuit of fast flowing trails.

While sitting on a corner I observed a rider take small stack into a fallen tree sorry Gary but u get SOTD

Conditions were spot on as the rain from the night before was keeping the dust down and ground firm.
100kms later were at Moore River for fuel and food.
Now it's time for me to have a crack at leading and Cass put his hand up to sweep.

After Moore River we found ourselves at the Ledge Point general store, by now the temperature has hit 30c.
So instead of pressing on to Lano we decided to return Seabird for quick pint.
Now with beer on our mind we take the shortest route to seabird as possible. With a couple of runs up the beach to cool down.
Only one pint was the promise, but it's was drunk in time that even Bob Harke would be proud of.

KTMJames and He's mate Siom have other comments so they op to take the black top back to the OVT. I'm not saying anything but I think they were on a promise.

Now this were things start get interesting, that little thing called fatigue is starting to set in. With Nile 200kms on the clock at Moore River fuel stop.
I make a promise to head back to OVT in the shortest route possible with no whoops.
Now this was going to be harder then trying to find a $2 hooker in Thailand without herpes.

It was tough run back to the OVT but with beer on our minds we pushed hard and made it back by 4:00.
Cass was stopping at nothing as he rode the last 5kms with a rear flat for this he gets ROTD
We walk in the bar to be greeted by WRpaual and JNR enjoying a pint in the beer garden.

256 kms all up

Thanks to everyone that attended and Cass and KTMJames for helping out leading and sweeping.
It was always going to be a challenging ride but enjoyable one.
To the riders that are new to Crusty I hope to see you out on the trails again soon.

Big thanks to JNR for giving me and my bike a lift home, I don't think I would of made it.

See you all next time Inver

Used them on the back of a DR650 and loved them.
1. Quite expensive
2. Quiet on the road
3. Wears fast for the first half then lasts for ever.

I still agree that a 606 dunlop is the best value rear tyre for an adventure bike that might be used off road.
Don't put a 606 on the front.....bad things happen!

I have tried a Motoz adventure tyre for the rear this time and found this to be much better than you would expect in sand. Would be crap in mud.
