Cool video!

But that guy using those tire tools on that brand new naked rim made me cringe.

Still off-road, but more of a fun little video showing the Trans Taiga Trail/Road.

Great videos. Guess I'm easy because I thought the length and sound was just fine and subscribed to your channel. Keep em com'in

I will likely never do that type of riding on purpose but just for info ... what tires are you running? I am pretty sure my factory battleaxe tires are NOT up to the task!

You are a madman.

I can only hope I will be able to gain the skills to do half the stuff you show in your videos.

Just rode the McGruder Corridor from Elk City ID to Darby MT. Was riding my 17 wee standard model. Friends on 12 Tiger 800 XC and 08 450 EXC. A big storm had left the middle 40 miles very challenging because of all the rockfall, but the strom even with Trailwings never missed a beat and averaged 44 mpg with alot of 1st gear stuff.

Your lines and momentum are way better. Those big loose rocks always suck though..I hate 'em. Doode, you really need to go to Moab.....the White Rim Trail is calling you

I ran the stock tires for a bit off-road, and honestly I didn't mind them one bit! Certainly a higher risk of puncture, but much better off pavement than I would have thought!
Running Shinko 804/805 now.
