Quick Q!!!!

9 posts in this topic

I've been wanting to try the new D952 from Dunlop , problem is that not all sizes are out in the market yet, well more like on every retail store. I called Cycle Gear and they have one in stock but is a 110/90-18. I know a shorter and wider tire (190/50-17) does make a street bike steer slower than a higher wall profile (190/60-17), is it the same thing on dirt bikes?????? :)

That picture was taken off of Bouquet Canyon road about two miles from Spunky Canyon road (Two Shay Ranch). They are standing on a ridge where Martindale Canyon goes down into the Reservoir.

At about N34.57909 W118.36979

The Lake is Called Bouquet Reservoir

actually you ask a really good question.

most folks equate rear tires with either how long they last, how much they cost, or what kind of 'hook up' they deliver.

skinny, light tires handle much better than heavy thick ones....

Team Honda races in Baja with 120's and not with 140's for that reason...
