I've got a few thousand miles on trials tires now. The Pirelli MT43 is awesome - DOT approved. The other manufacturers tend to shred and throw off knobs during high speed tarmac runs. The Pirelli lasts forever!

Works OK in the sand, as long as you don't stop. Works awesome everywhere else.

I rode "C" sweep on last year's Howlin at the Moon on my 450 (SNOW) with the trials. Miles and miles of high speed black top. No problem!

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