So what caused your flat? Did you replace the tube or simply patch it?
I hit a deep hole at about 80mph which was too much for the front tube. We replaced the tube. However, I had three flat tires in only 3 weeks. Then I replaced the OEM tires with the Shinko 804/805 and installed the 4mm Michelin Ultra Heavy Duty Tubes. Sure you can feel the weight of the tubes now a bit, but this is still much better than fixing a flat tire. No more flat tires since then :D

Nice Vid. Good head of steam through the straights. Always exciting to break the speed limits of asphalt on dirt.
Thank you :smile2:.
Yes you are right, it is exciting to be faster in the dirt than on the roads. We were riding this pace for hours on this day.

So far I like the Shinko tires. Can't belive that they have even a little bit more grip than the OEM tires on the street. Offroad they are better for sure !!!
Here is a picture with the Shinko tires on my bike :smile2:
