There is always a lot of tire talk here and haven't heard anyone mention or talk about the Michelin Baja yet. Anyone try em out? How are they if you have used them? Looks like it would hook up pretty well for a DOT tire...

i use them often.
hook up is just 'ok' - but they last a long time.
softer sidewall and less agressive pattern than the 'Desert' - a bit cheaper also.

i like all the Michelin tires.

I like the Michelin BAJA as well however I like the Teraflex better in deep sand.

I run the Baja rear only all the time on the XR. Great tire in the dirt but a little noisy on the street :) Can't beat it in Baja :)

The baja my bud has is not as wide as my desert. I'm heavy dude in soft sand and think wider floats me better . otherwise I would run a baja.

I run the baja and i'm very satisfy with it, for off road anyway. It's a knoby tire so on pave it's little noisy but pretty tuff. I'm kinda curious about the teraflex, i am going to try it. But the baja is a good tire, where I ride I get all kind of terain, hard, rock, sand and*all kind of wet stuff. It's doing the job for me.

They rock and last a long time, my dad use's them on is XR650L, and the terrain that why ride is rocky, technical and nasty in the northern part of baja(tijuana).I use Dunlop, but i will swith to Michelin.
