So now for a couple questions.

The last two years I ran a heavily modded F650GS on Dunlop D606s on the B route. I rode to the event each time so this worked out to be a good combo. The BMW sucked in the sand wash last year (not the tires fault).

Now I have an Aprilia RXV5.5. I've been riding the heck out of it out in Havasu (rocks and sand). It came with Michelin Deserts. I've been reading up on the trials tires on the rear. Everyone says they excel in rocks and hard pack. I saw guys running them last year. Wondering if anyone had any negative experiences from last year with the trials tires what with the sand, snow and mud?

Looking at the video posted it seems the trials tire would be ideally suited to this years ride. Thoughts?

Cheers
Brett
