TTR ride 19.4

As the WRR is still in dry dock the TTR got another run today, from home up around the Barossa Valley, plenty of dirt roads, vineyards, no towns & only stopped to take a couple of photos.

The speedo hit 20k as I turned off onto the dirt, so another 150kms ride today, no rain but only 17c

Looks like a good day out 

Always good to see a ttr out and about.

Looks like a good chilled ride. I'm looking forward to getting out just as soon as we are able to do so.

 This bike is so smooth however I am having issues with the front grip, it might be the fact the WRR with MT21's has unreal grip, I ran this bike with D605 dual sport tyres then D606's which gave a fair bit of understeer but was perdictable, even tried MT21's.  I fitted ADV tyres hoping to get good results on gravel roads & keep the WRR on MT21's.

When I got back today I slid the forks up 5mm in the triples to try to sharpen up the front, will see how it is next weekend, running 15PSI as my normal settings, thinking I may have to go back to a D606.

 Here in South Australia we are lucky that it is not a complete lock down & as long as we don't have 10 or more & keep SD under control we are fine. But in saying that I have been riding on my own both on the road bike & dual sport.

Haven't tried the 606 tires . I'm not far off needing a new front tire. 

About to head bush again we are allowed two people outside .  But as its Monday and it's a day off work I'm heading out solo  for the morning
