    Why it's best to run DOT tires

    The Anza Borrego area is composed of 90% loose sand. Non DOT Soft / Intermediate rated tires ("wide open blocks") ultimately translates into rider safety due to the motorcycle's best traction capabilities. I agree if a DS rider slides out on the asphalt into the path of an oncoming vehicle (most likely the rider's fault) that the inspecting Highway Patrol person will note whether or not the DS rider's tires are DOT approved thus the insurance companies may in fact not to back their insured rider. So by all means choose a DOT tire to keep you safe with the law and the insurance companies. For me I select the best tire for the riding conditions I am currently riding, and this keeps me the safest on the dirt. I ride 90% dirt 10% slab.

    Lower Profile Rear Tire

    Just an old trick that I have used for years and it works well; 1. Take your old tube, cut out the valve stem, split the tube through the middle. 2. Stuff your new HD tube inside the old split tube and add a spot of air (just a little). 3. Stuff the "tube-in-a-tube" into your new 120/90-18 Dunlop Geomax MX 33 SI tire (lasts 30-40hrs. and is the best for lots of sand, rocks without chunking , and a wee bit of slab thrown in). 4. Pull the valve stem through the rim, now add the nut. 5. Install the tire to the rim. 6. Add 12 psi air. 7. Enjoy years of riding with out ever getting a pinch flat. 8. Same thing for the front, just use the Maxxis SI fatty tire 90/100-21. *Long Nails might alter your results drastically. πŸ¦—
