Here is my bike with some spare tires from the garage…they fit 17″ rims, so it should count…but I didn’t think I could put both on the bike…
and here is my bike next to a lifted truck with oversized tires…
I know, I cheated a little…they are all in my driveway, but I couldn’t resist…hehehe
Good luck!!September 3, 2010 at 7:46 pm #28463
All you need are some bungee cords to strap the tires to your moto secure enough to take a ride..October 3, 2010 at 9:31 pm #28597
I’m still going with the tires on my bike…
but try this pic…your bike near what ever is the prime income for your state/province, in Alberta it is the oil and gas industry…so…
Maybe we can get a better response from these.

Yesterday wasn’t my first ride of the year, but it was the first ride of the new “season”. It was near perfect weather when I started, but I was a little cold when I got home. Anyways, I was finally able to get some photos for madjack’s tag challenge.
Preferably an old clear-cut, but a new one, or a recently replanted one will do.April 5, 2011 at 5:19 pm #29445WeaponZeroParticipant
No idea what a clear-cut even is.April 5, 2011 at 5:44 pm #29447
You can see them best if you are driving/riding through the mountains and you see a section of the forest has been cut down in a long wide strip…but forest is on either side…that’s a clear cut section…if you are going past one you will see a field of tree stumps and undergrowth, but the trees will be gone…again clear cut…
I don’t know if I will see any this weekend when I am out riding, but if I do, I will take a pic and show you… ;-p

A clear cut is when they go in and cut out about 95% of the trees in a logging operation. They’re infamous here in Oregon. They are basically the logging version of strip-mining; but at some point someone said that they are the best way to log. Oh well, gotta have wood.
Anyway, MadJack gave good advice on how to find one, the trick is living near a forest.April 9, 2011 at 1:05 am #29461TrialsRiderParticipant
Home of the Giant Redwoods …or are there any still standing ?
If this one doesn’t get a response, at least I can sharpen up my chain saw and prep a site for the photo shoot, trees are way easier to ride over when they’re laying down anyway …just kidding! Closest thing here is where hydro power lines cut through treed areas or where they clear to build housing developments and highways, somebody else will need to bump this one.
Clear-cut IS the best way to log, given a bottom line of short term pure profit.April 9, 2011 at 4:30 am #29462
They do a lot of clear cut “harvesting” in BC…I’ll have to check and see if there is any near me…maybe I can get it tomorrow…doubt it though…but it’s worth a ride….

The trees were cleared many years ago, but I say close enough. I think of this song for your bike, but people like different colors:April 16, 2011 at 3:37 pm #29505April 21, 2011 at 11:05 pm #29518
Northern California has the giant redwoods, or at least, they have most of them. Oregon used to have on of the largest and oldest giant sequoias, but it was topped by a lightning storm, then taken down some more in a wind storm.
